Russia, President Trump, Vladimir Putin discussed on This Morning with Gordon Deal
Or that of Vladimir Putin's Russia and so that the parallels are certainly clear in terms, of the actual substance of the comments. And the actual responses from lawmakers but I will say today that you know there are. Republican lawmakers on the house side. At least coming to the president's defense and there's also the, question of what Republicans could actually do more than raise their concerns they have said called Ryan house speaker, said they will continue to push for sanctions on Russia They have issued sanctions on Russia but beyond. That it's. Not. Quite. Clear what, Republicans can actually. Do. To, sway this president or, could do more to stand up to him and speaking of Paul Ryan as you mentioned even saw him sort of downplay the effect that Russia's meddling had on the twenty sixteen election just a day after, speaking out loudly against Russia and contradicting Trump's assertion about the meddling Republicans are concerned that the president is so. Focused on himself and the way in which admitting Russian meddling but somehow also undermine legitimacy of his election now the intelligence community. Has said that it's there's no, way of, knowing really the impact that the Russian meddling, had in terms of electing Trump and. Republicans are trying to get the president to kind of see beyond himself and I think. That's what you're seeing in the. Speaker's comments, all right thanks Caitlin Caitlin burns national political report At real clear politics fourteen minutes now. After the. Hour. On. This Morning America's first news.
