"It was truly horrifying and deeply alarming to see the President of the United States stand with the President of Russian Federation in undercutting the work of our intelligence agencies and law enforcement and blaming America for the attacks on our elections and our democracy", she said in news release.
"Just to repeat it, I said the word would instead of wouldn't", Trump said, referring to his answer at the press conference, in response to a question about whether Russian Federation had tried to influence the American election: "All I can do is ask the question - my people came to me, Dan Coats came to me and some others, they said they think it's Russian Federation. I think we're all to blame", the president, standing next to Putin, said during the news conference. "Respected colleagues, when Mr. Trump came to Moscow, I didn't even know he was there", said Putin. "The sentence should have been, 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation'".
Speaking at the joint news conference, President Putin offered to allow USA investigators to visit Russian Federation to question the officers.
With that, Trump declared the contretemps over, insisting, "I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself".
Trump failed to push Putin to end his attacks on the elections and defended him "on all fronts", Murray said.
Trump came under great pressure to raise the alleged meddling with Putin, who has on numerous occasions denied any wrongdoing.
"An absolutely shameful display by an American president with the whole world watching", Lemon said. As The Daily Beast reported, the comments left Trump's inner circle scrambling to convince the president to walk back the statements.
They also want to know about any talk on changing worldwide security agreements, if Trump made any commitments tied to the United States' presence in Syria or military exercises for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
Mr Trump said: "Our relationship has never been worse than it is now".
