People in his orbit have, for instance, repeatedly lied about the campaign's contacts with Russians and the President is under investigation for possible obstruction of justice for firing FBI Director James Comey, who had been overseeing the election interference investigation.
Any responsible president would have reacted strongly to an indictment alleging foreign interference in a USA election. The President still has not imposed sanctions created to punish election meddling by Moscow. The administration said it was the settlement of a decades-old arbitration claim between the countries.
In a rapid-fire series of tweets from his Palm Beach estate, the president unloaded over the Russia investigation, days after an indictment from special counsel Robert Mueller charged 13 Russians with a plot to interfere in the USA presidential election.
The 13 Russians are accused of setting up fake accounts using stolen U.S. identities, setting up themed groups and promoting political rallies throughout 2016, using Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter.
In the Baltic nations, which border Russia, Trump's election had raised concerns about US commitments to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.
Trump's frustration bubbled over on Twitter, where he stressed that the Russian effort began before he declared his candidacy, asserted that the Obama administration bears some blame for the election meddling and insisted he never denied that the Kremlin interfered in the 2016 USA campaign. A reporter asked how Trump brought up the issue of Russian meddling in the USA election. "Did you ask him a question?"
"Every time he sees me, he says, 'I didn't do that, ' " Trump said.
"But he says, 'I didn't do that.' I think he's very insulted by it, if you want to know the truth".
Student survivors of the massacre slammed Trump for connecting it to the Russian Federation probe, which has shadowed his year-old presidency."Oh my god". But Trump also said he believed Putin was honest when he said Russian Federation didn't interfere. And he's been consistent on Russian Federation.
In the late 1970s the Iranian government, under the USA -backed shah, paid the US $400 million for military equipment. Iran paid more than $2.5 billion to USA businesses and citizens to resolve claims.

One diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity to avoid provoking Trump, asked whether policymakers like McMaster who adhere largely to traditional US foreign policy positions were falling into the same trap as Germany's elite during Hitler's rise, when they continued to serve in government in the name of protecting their nation. An initial payment was delivered the same day Tehran agreed to release four American prisoners.
President Donald Trump remained focused on the Russian Federation matter on Monday, questioning in a tweet why his predecessor didn't act to prevent Moscow from interfering in U.S. elections.
Referring to the indictment of 13 Russians announced Friday, McMaster says "with the Federal Bureau of Investigation indictment, the evidence is now incontrovertible" of Russia cyber-meddling. Instead, on several occasions, Trump defended Putin or attempted to explain his point of view. But Mueller's investigation continues and nothing is ruled out.
Indeed, though Trump said Sunday that he never denied there was Russian election meddling, he has emphasized Russian President Vladimir Putin's denial.
This much is thought to be true: Russian Federation is not known to have succeeded in manipulating voting systems or ballots.
The President took his assault on the bureau to a new level over the weekend by squarely blaming Florida FBI agents for the failure to stop the high school shooting in Broward County last week.
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie stressed on ABC's "This Week" that the indictment was not the end of the Mueller probe.

"I never said Russian Federation did not meddle in the election". According to the indictment, beginning as early as 2014, the Russian organisation Internet Research Agency began operations to interfere with the United States political system, including the 2016 election.
