Lawmakers reject Trump's claim that USA is no better than Russian Federation

Lawmakers reject Trump's claim that USA is no better than Russian Federation

He said: "I respect a lot of people but that doesn't mean that I am going to get along with them".

The tycoon then said he respected Putin, whose belligerence is causing tension among the Baltic states, and would prefer to "get along with him".

When O'Reilly says he doesn't know any government leaders who are killers, Trump says "take a look at what we've done, too".

He added: "I say it's better to get along with Russian Federation than not". Still, it would be a "good thing" if the two countries could cooperate in the fight against the Islamic State, he said. "I'm not going to critique every utterance of the President", McConnell said. "I have no idea", Trump said. "This is the second time Trump has defended Putin against the charge that he's a killer by saying in effect that the U.S.is no better or different", Schiff said to CNN. "We have a lot of killers", Trump responded.

Mr Trump's latest remarks left United States intentions toward Russian Federation unclear. "You think our country is so innocent?"

Election officials who have analyzed the November 8 vote say there were nearly no indications of voter fraud, certainly not on the scale Trump cites. The full interview airs Sunday before the Super Bowl, but Fox News has posted a small preview snippet.

Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader, also broke with Mr Trump.

Relations between Washington and Moscow deteriorated during the administration of former President Barack Obama over the conflicts in Ukraine and Syria. "I think there is a clear distinction here that all Americans understand", he said.

Declaring California to be "out of control", President Trump threatened to withhold federal funding to the state if it votes to declare itself a sanctuary state. That could also be because of another news report that came out just before the Donald Trump inauguration, which said that Russian Federation has compromising documents and/or photos of Donald Trump while he was in Russian Federation. "I obviously don't see the issue the same way he does", McConnell replied.

USA intelligence agencies have accused Russian Federation of hacking computers connected to the Democratic Party as part of a wide-ranging campaign aimed at interfering in the US presidential election.

The two, according to the White House, talked about a "variety of topics, including Ukraine's long-running conflict with Russian Federation".
