Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin at Helsinki summit press conferenceMore

President Donald Trump read from a typed script on Tuesday afternoon to claim he misspoke in his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.

"Canada has been unequivocal in our condemnation of Vladimir Putin and Russia", Trudeau said in response to a reporter's question before listing a host of Russian actions under Putin's watch that Canada has opposed. The speaker said he stood by his Monday statement that "the president must appreciate that Russian Federation is not our ally".

The Russian media establishment's view sharply contrasts that of USA media outlets, which have slammed the summit as disastrous for United States foreign policy, as Donald Trump sided with Putin's view that Russia did not interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

The latter comment contrasted sharply with the assessment of various US intelligence agencies about what happened in the election that saw Trump become president, and sparked an uproar in the U.S.as officials and pundits blasted Trump for siding with Putin over American authorities.

Mr Trump said: "I realise there's a need for some clarification", adding that what he meant "should have been obvious - I thought it would be obvious but would like to clarify in case it wasn't".

Albright spoke with Woodruff hours after Trump claimed that he misspoke when he said at a Monday news conference with Putin that he didn't see any reason why Russian Federation would meddle in the 2016 presidential election, despite the assessment of multiple US intelligence agencies and statements from other Trump administration officials that it did.

"The president did a good thing by meeting with Putin", Senator Rand Paul told CBS' "This Morning" program, comments that won him public thanks from Trump on Twitter.

"My administration will repeal any attempt to interfere in our elections", he said.

"Definitely, Russia should have a strong leader, it is so natural for us", he said.

"The sentence should have been, 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia.' Sort of a double negative", the president said.

Trump said the summit with Putin still "was our most successful visit" on his European trip.

For all the noise from congressional Republicans, there is little sign they will take meaningful steps to constrain President Trump such as holding up his nominees to the courts or senior administration positions, stalling legislation or starting new hearings into the Trump campaign's connections with Russian Federation.

"Do we want someone with that kind of character, that kind of careless language to be negotiating with Putin?" Trump leaned forward in his chair, his hands tented in front of him and frequently glanced over at the Russian president.

Fellow GOP politicians have generally stuck with Trump during a year and a half of turmoil, but he was assailed as seldom before as he returned home Monday night from what he had hoped would be a proud summit with Putin. He was asked whether he holds Russian Federation accountable for "anything in particular", Trump responded, "I hold both countries responsible".
