  • I wonder what excuses will people give once Dems start going to jail for crimes working with Russians against our country ?

  • Obama new about Russian interference and failed to act. Obama’s Cyber Chief stated that the Obama admin, in the summer of 2016, gave him orders to “Stand Down” against Russian cyber attacks.

  • No one's saying trump won because he didn't win the election at all. He only won the Electoral College vote….NOT the people's vote….the popular vote.

  • Mr. Gandalf __ [ aka: The Stream Killer ] says:

    I will never trust Donald Trump's relationship with Russia because I personally saw threats of Nuclear War if Hillary Clinton was elected, coming from Russia!

  • He should tell Facebook that the interference isn't real. I'm sure they would love to get that $5000000000 back. And then sue him.

  • Putin played dumb dony putin bailout republican party DA black mail dumb dony putin to dumb dony dismantle usa DA Lie repeat Lie repeat Lie repeat Spin baby Spin

  • tanattecnocraft says:

    I do believe that Russia did interfere in our elections, and they have a road map to do it again. Why would you as the president not believe that, when you yourself tweeted that you had nothing to do with Russians getting you elected as POTUS?

  • Rai constitutionalist says:

    Donald is in loves to shove his foot in his mouth. All his money is in Russia that's why he doesn't have anything to say about his friends

  • When you are planning on rigging elections like was done with Hillary against Bernie, you have to deflect the blame onto someone else. Especially when you have accomplished nothing and screamed RACISTS for months.

  • george plimpton says:

    What a Russian tool. Even if he doesn't believe it, it is his job to guard against even the possibility of it. Trump swore an oath that he has been breaking for the entirety of his term. He must be impeached!

  • John Christopher Robert says:

    Even Muller testified that the Russians interference had no impact on the 2016 presidential election. Not to mention that the Russians were giving the DNC and the Clinton Campaign untrue opposition research against Trump.

  • The UK Navy has been training for war with Russia for 8 years now, the Deep State wants war – this is a frame-up.
    It's for Geo-political reasons as Russia opposed Globalism.

    Also, the shooters in the US are Antifa members, the Wayback machine shows that people in Twitter are involved. They are Psychologically conditioned like all shooters. It's a sophisticated Globalist conspiracy to blame and remove Trump. They will attack EVERY DAY until September

  • Salvador G. Jimenez says:

    When he leaves the white house, Congress or the FBI should PREVENT HIM from traveling to Russia to build his Hotel in Moscu or chances are, we will never see him returning to the US or let him go alone without Kushner, the beautiful First Lady who certainly is not a Scientist but emigrated here with a visa for scientists, she can't even speak good English or French, Italian.

  • msndrstdwlf BB says:

    The denial is because he knows his win was influenced by russia.and he is an illigitimate manchurian president only his tArget for assassination is the US constitution.

  • We know that money hungry trump is using the office to only benefit his financial empire. he is only in the WH to make money, he have been and he will continually sell top secrets to our adversaries, that is why he want his son-in-law to get TS clearance. HIS SON IN LAW NEED TO BE STOPPED. How can U.S. protect themselves when the very head of the nation is corrupt. Trump need to be put in jail NOW, NOT 2 YEARS FROM NOW, THEN IT WILL BE TOO LATE. TRUMP IS SELLING AMERICA TO PUTIN AND BLEEDING AMERICA, THAT IS MY GUT FEELING.
