Trump on Russian Interference in 2018: 'We'll Counteract Whatever They Do'

Trump vows to counteract any Russian meddling in November elections

Meanwhile, morale has plummeted as special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation appears to be heating up.

TRUMP: I like conflict.

In a joint press conference at the White House, President Trump thanked Sweden's efforts to intervene in North Korea. "I like watching it, I like seeing it". On Tuesday, he acknowledged the Russian meddling and said others may have been involved as well, but they had no influence on the outcome.

Ask Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"Believe me everybody wants to work in the White House". Cohn was a Wall Street veteran and seen as a steadying force in the West Wing.

Mr. Trump is right that the USA relationship goes back a long way - Sweden recognized US independence in 1783, and the first Swedish immigrants landed in DE in 1638, the State Department also points out.

"In my discussions with the president, he is fully supportive of the work we're doing", Mnuchin said. But the president declined to discuss their relationship.

Trump said over the weekend that attempts by the European Union to take reciprocal steps would prompt him to apply new tariffs on automobile imports. Trump was responding to a question from a Swedish journalist about what her country could learn from the American experience in 2016. President Donald Trump isn't budging on his worldwide tariff stance so far despite remarkably public pleadings from Speaker Ryan and other Republican allies to back off his threat and avoid a possible trade war.

"We will straighten it out". "They came out, they went to the Olympics, they went in very good spirit". It will be a loving, loving way. The European Union has increased the pressure by preparing punitive tariffs on US goods produced in key Republican constituencies, including motorcycles, jeans and bourbon whisky.

South Korea war games may overlap with April's Kim-Moon summit
The United States and our allies remain committed to applying maximum pressure on the Kim regime to end their nuclear program. This line of dialogue, of course, marks a significant departure from years of nuclear rhetoric from Kim's regime.

Trump jokes about media, Korea, himself at Gridiron Dinner
He continued that his wife was especially fond of his tax reforms: "Melania is even getting some major benefits from it". For much of the night, he was a good sport - laughing and applauding at times during the evening's entertainment.

Don't Want Trade War With US, But Will Take Necessary Measures: China
China has the lions share of over United States dollars 580 billion in bilateral trade with the US. The defence budget of the USA which is the highest in the world amounted to $602.8 billion.

The questioner later asked whether Trump is anxious about Russian influence in the 2018 election. Certainly there was meddling.

"It doesn't look good when it all comes out of China, so they ship it though other countries", Trump said. "They can do whatever they like, but if they do that then we put a big tax of 25% on their cars and believe me they won;t be doing that very long".

"You have to be very vigilant".

The president - seemingly out of the blue, as he often does - also touted a potential alternative to hacks of electronic voting systems: "It's called paper", he said, noting some states have non-electronic backup plans. Called paper. Not highly complex computers.

The nation's defense intelligence chief says he's wary of North Korea's claim that it's ready to negotiate on its nuclear program and will halt tests. I hope they are honest.

"We've seen Russian bots and activities stirring up people on both sides of the gun debate after the shootings in Florida", the Virginia lawmaker said.

"The EU has been particularly tough on the United States".
