US President Donald Trump says Russia is no longer targeting US
Updated : July 18, 2018 11:02 PM IST
Trump on Tuesday tried to walk back comments that he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin over American intelligence chiefs on Russian interference in the 2016 election, saying that he had misspoken a day earlier after a summit meeting with Putin in Helsinki.
US intelligence officials have said Russian election interference efforts are continuing and now target the upcoming congressional elections in November.
Trump has been scrambling to undo the damage from his comments on Monday in which he gave credence to Putin's denials over the conclusions of American intelligence services.
