US President Donald Trump was left in the dark when the lights went out as he made an address at the White House.
Throughout his presidency, Trump has dismissed Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into election meddling and collusion with his administration as a "witch hunt".
Less than a week later, the President's understanding of that evidence has been severely tested, as the White House tries to contain the damage from his widely condemned news conference Monday with Putin.
Then after a morning Cabinet meeting, when asked whether the Russians are still targeting the United States, Trump said "no" twice - a response that seemed to contradict a warning from Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats this week that Russia is engaged in "ongoing, pervasive efforts" to meddle in American elections.

"President Trump tried to squirm away from what he said yesterday". "Big results will come!"
Trump's Helsinki press conference with Putin, and his endorsement of the Russian President over his own intelligence services, has fed outrage and concern about Trump's motivations, as well as what transpired during the closed-door session.
During a joint press conference in Helsinki with Putin, Trump said while he has "great confidence" in the United States intelligence community, Putin was "very powerful" in his denial of Russian interference in the 2016 election, comments that he attempted to walk back Tuesday.

"We are doing everything in our power to prevent Russian interference in 2018", he said. They would rather go to war than see this.
EU Trade Commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom said Thursday that the 28-nation bloc would be forced to impose more "rebalancing measures" if Trump escalates trade tensions with the auto tariffs.
