Trump says he misspoke on Russia meddling
President Donald Trump says he meant the opposite when he said in Helsinki that he doesn't see why Russia would have interfered in the 2016 US elections.
Back at the White House today, the president told reporters that he said he meant he doesn't see why Russia "wouldn't" be responsible.
Trump spoke a day after returning to the US to nearly universal condemnation of his performance at Russian President Vladmir Putin's side in Helsinki. Putin said he wanted Trump to win the race against Democrat Hillary Clinton.
