Warner criticizes Trump's response to threat of Russian interference

Trump: I'm Not Worried About Russia Meddling in 2018 Election

"The United States has been taken advantage of by other countries both friendly and not so friendly for many, many decades", Trump said, complaining about what he said was the United States's $800 billion trade deficit.

During a joint news conference with President Trump on Tuesday, Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven criticized the US president's recent proposal to slap a 25 percent tariff on imported steel and a 10 percent tariff on imported aluminum, saying that they would hurt everyone "in the long run".

Trump was adamant that he would proceed with the planned import penalties but said he will do "it in a very loving way", despite mounting opposition from Republicans and world leaders.

The comment comes after Trump announced new tariffs on steel and aluminum imports to the US. We'll counteract it very strongly. "We'll soon find out".

"The new Fake News narrative is that there is CHAOS in the White House", Trump tweeted.

Russian Federation has been found by multiple investigations and agencies to have sought to influence the last presidential election by backing candidates, including Trump, who opposed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Trump shared the stage Tuesday with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven and, as is traditional, each leader called on two journalists. Trump also complained about a $500 billion trade deficit with China; it was a $375 billion deficit in 2017.

He also earned defensive MVP honors in the Peach Bowl in January, which capped UCF's undefeated season with a win over Auburn. There will continue to be doubts about how an National Football League linebacker can get off blocks with only one hand.

Trump said "there will be people - I'm not going to be specific - that change", but that he wouldn't have any trouble replacing staffers.

The comments come less than a week after Trump announced that the United States will impose new tariffs, which function as a tax on imports, on steel and aluminum and make no exception for close allies such as Canada and the EU.

"I think that's a great idea". "Sometimes they want to go out and do something else, but they all want to be in the White House".

It's not quite clear exactly what Trump is referring to in his remarks.

While Mr. Trump called the statements out of North and South Korea "positive", he said "one way or the other we have to do something, we cannot let that situation fester". But White House staffers have privately complained about difficulties attracting qualified candidates to the administration. Warmbier died shortly after being returned to the U.S. The U.S. has no formal diplomatic relations with North Korea.

"Me", he joked before adding that no one in the room got his joke.
