President Donald Trump said Tuesday that Russia had"no impact on our vote in the 2016 presidential contest and vowed to combat any attempts to meddling in the 2018 midterms

President Donald Trump may soon place sanctions on Russian Federation for interfering in the 2016 presidential election, a surprising move given that Trump continues to deny that Russian Federation actually meddled in the campaign. The president was asked about that.

"We'll see what happens".

"I thought North Korea was terrific", Trump said.

President Donald Trump and Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven clashed Tuesday over Trump's proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, APA reportrs quoting CNN.

"We won't allow that to happen", he said, referring to the November mid-terms.

During a news conference with his Swedish counterpart, Trump also promised his proposed tariffs on steel and aluminum will be applied in a "very loving way", declared the North Koreans were "sincere" in their renewed push for talks and insisted the U.S. would rebut Russian efforts to interfere in the 2018 congressional contests.

The President has consistently shrugged off intelligence assessments that Moscow attempted to sway the 2016 election against Hillary Clinton.

While Trump conceded that there was "certainly" meddling, he offered the caveat that "other countries, maybe other individuals", and not just Russian Federation, may have been involved.

The president said he planned to move forward with special tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, contending the USA has always been "mistreated" in trade deals. "Paper. And a lot of states are going to paper and I think that's a great idea".

"They make it nearly impossible for us to do business with them and yet they send their cars and everything else back to the United States", he said.

In January, the Trump administration was harshly criticized for not imposing new sanctions when a list of 114 Russian politicians and 96 oligarchs was released to comply with a law Congress passed to punish Moscow for interfering in the 2016 USA election. "I like different points of view".

That's according to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who told lawmakers during a Tuesday hearing that the U.S. would "be moving forward with sanctions on Russia" as a result of the Kremlin's election interference.

Trump said Tuesday that he is not anxious that Moscow will meddle in the upcoming midterm elections because the US will take steps to prevent it.

Asked whether he wishes he'd handled the accusations about Russian interference differently ahead of the 2016 elections, McConnell said, "No, I'm perfectly comfortable with the steps that were taken back then".

Warner warned that Russian Federation continues to use active measures to exploit division through social media, pointing to the recent gun control debate that seized the country after the deadly shooting at a high school in Florida. "And we are having strong backup systems", he said.

"Because we'll counteract whatever they do".

Democrats also pressed Coats to explain why Trump hadn't authorized the intelligence community to do more to prevent Russian aggression.
