Ohio Gov. Tests Negative for COVID-19 Hours After Positive Result
"Governor Mike Dewine tested negative for corona virus just hours after another test registered a positive result raising concerns over the accuracy of Cova tess governor wine first tested positive yesterday morning. Using a rapid antigen tests with allows for results in minutes, but has been shown to be less accurate that test was part of the protocol for those greeting president trump on the tarmac airport in Cleveland Governor Dewine. Then returned to Columbus and took a second test. From Ohio, State University's Medical Center this time using a more standard procedure known as P., C. R. and results came back negative in the evening that second test which looks at these specific genetic material for the virus is known to be more sensitive and accurate, but more time intensive, and it requires sales to be processed in a lab. Wine sample was run twice and came back negative both times, Jonathan. Lemaire, you're on that trip your with the president right now, traveling this test was administered because governor dewine was going to greet president trump on the tarmac there in Ohio. What were the ripple effects of that News Air Force One? Good Morning I'm today in new. Jersey, don't be too jealous not far from the president's Bedminster Golf Club where he is spending a three day weekend, but you're right yesterday we landed here last late last night. From Ohio and perhaps not in the first line of my career obituary will note that I was in the room when the president said. But yeah. But more than that, it's the governor and that initially initial test. Shadowed the entire trip, the president spent the day at Ohio, which in itself, of course, was noteworthy state that he won handily in two thousand sixteen. But this time around did the polling shows about Joe. Biden shows you president trump diminished standing in this race that he has to spend time resource energy in states like Ohio. Yesterday, he was in. Texas, last week having to play defense and it was as we. We were about to take off from Washington on Air. Force One. When we got news, the governor had tested positive and he no longer will be able to be there on the tarmac when we landed. Of course, he wasn't there president was greeted in Cleveland by other other officials, other representatives I addressed briefly saying that he thought the governor would hopefully would be okay, but it goes to show you the entire. Centered around a speech. The president touted his economic policies He turned toward a whirlpool factory in Ohio, Tout American manufacturing in its rebirth under his watch although, of course. American. Manufacturing sector has really stalled by in the last year or two. But. He chose he can never outrun the virus everything was trying to yesterday and then included a fundraiser as well was shadowed by this, and then of course, last night after we landed here in New Jersey, we got second test proved negative, but it raises questions about the accuracy of these tests and includes those White House. If you remember Texas last week Congressman Gohmert was going to be on the Air Force One. He wasn't because he tested positive. Seems like subsequent tests indicate that as well. But this causes the question. Everyone comes into contact with the president that includes his. Medic officials on the road that includes reporters at the white. House before the one, I took that same test yesterday, the governor wanted in Ohio. We're all screen, and now this has been number of high profile. Cases, governor. But also staffers and reporters where there's been a false negative at first were a false positive. It calls into question just how accurate and safe. All these tests are for anyone including those traveling with commander in chief.

Booing The President, What Goes Around Comes Around Politics And al-Baghdadi's death
"Trump was at the game last night where he was greeted with boos when his attendance was announced during the game accord the Washington Post the crowds sustained booing hit almost one hundred decibels and was followed by chance of lock him up impeach trump when he was introduced after the third inning he good morning and welcome to morning Joe it is Monday October twenty eight and with us we have MSNBC contributor Mike Barnicle White House reporter for the Associated Press Jonathan Lemere president of the Council on Foreign Relations and author of the bulk a world in disarray Richard Haass columnist and Associate the Washington Post David Ignatius and former NATO Supreme Allied Commander Retired Four-star Navy Admiral James to Rita's he's chief international security and diplomacy analyst for NBC News and Msnbc it was sort of startling and sad to hear those chance of lock him up Saturday from the crowd I do no pleasure in that it really was there have been many traditions that have been brought about Donald trump and his supporters and people around that are UNAMERICAN of even fascist like a chance of lock her up the sent her back but the lock lock her up about Hillary Clinton repeatedly has become a centerpiece and that's what that's what dictators they take over and then they start talking about imprisoning others and it's un-american it's it's here here playing chant here aw that's that's unfortunately it's been fad to America's political system through Donald Trump and last night it was turned against him it but again it's it's it's un-american and the people in the stands that were doing it last night shouldn't have done it in fact they learned they have learned from Donald Trump that's what you do to political opponents I hope that Donald Trump after saying that he could be facing this entire campaign will cut it out we'll cut it up because this is I remember when Barack Obama was leaving office a lot of liberals wanted George W Bush tried by some international tribunal. I remember saying don't do it because it will be you on the other side of the presence he didn't have to worry about retribution from person that you follow yeah of course you don't you never think Mike Barnicle nobody everything's said anybody's ever going to follow them as president the United States when they first get in just like Donald Trump it's never he's never imagined it but live by the sword die by the sword and sure enough now you have donald trump having bar conduct an outrageous an outrageous investigation against Barack Obama and Donald Trump even calling the forty fourth president United States treasonous it's like this guy is just not smart enough to figure out that it goes around comes around and what he dishes out to others will be dished out to him that's why everybody has to tone it down stop chance stop with fat stop with fascists like tactics and the rhetoric it's just on I'm American and it's just not right yeah Joe and you know if you know this I mean most people know this what of people in this country just want the entire situation calmed down they want the country to come down they want candidates to come down be tough to have the crowd last night come down because really into it unfortunately but I think it's important going forward especially today as we talk about the events that occurred over the weekend that we take the time and the fought to separate it donald trump and whatever you feel about Donald trump to separate him and how he behaves in how he speaks from the actions of the Delta Force team the special operation now flew in and conducted that mission is to separate things and the best of the best of who we are and what we do around world's in why so much of the world still relies on this was in operation over the weekend Jonathan Lemaire you can speak to that but also last night yeah I mean it is certainly an American tradition to boo politicians who go to baseball games there's there's a rich history of the American president seeing the American pastime William Howard Taft was the first president throwing the first pitch I remember the Barco was there and every president since has at some point this accident has not yet not since taking office but he went last night I think the people around him we're hoping it could be part of the victory lap after announcing the death of album Dotty earlier in the day that of course was not the case but let's remember he's deeply deeply unpopular in the district of Columbia itself received about four percent of the vote there in two thousand sixteen obviously it's a little bit of a different crowd last night the world series it's more out-of-towners more corporate types still he was going to get booed and he was but certainly it comes at the end of what his administration feels like a a a significant watershed day for him to be able to make this announcement of the death as Mar Mike said you could separate the president and feelings towards him with what happened the day before in Syria this leader of Isis killed this is just gives president an image he thinks to put alongside President Obama's announcement of the death of Sama Bin Laden and it certainly comes at exactly the right time his people feel for it's an undeniable triumph to happen during the midst of the impeachment inquiry and it allows him to defend his Bryant C. and Syria just somebody Republican senators critical we know we're here we can we get we're GonNa get to that right now get Sewri obviously just follow pro Jonathan said there is a very long enrich fish presence it sporting events most of them do all different but now but again I speak to the lock him up chance again I it's just un-american it started with Donald trump in fact he's made it the centerpiece of his campaign rallies we find it sickening when it happened rallies Kinda sickening it's we we are Americans and we do not do that we do not want the world hearing has chant lock him up to that he created this president or any president that's all I'm saying let's hope is move forward maybe this one US fascist tactic he and his supporters us during chance that you were going to actually imprison your political opponents so let's evatt behind and just I don't we'll see we'll see if the astros possible going to finish it off in Houston I don't know if Max can pitch game seventy it's possible that's what she will tell me before we came but I said President Trump yesterday confirmed the death of Isis later Abu Baqer al-Baghdadi following a raid this weekend in northwestern Syria by US special operations forces president trump tease the announcement in the tweet on Saturday night writing quote something very big has happened God I know by the way they had not confirmed it happened at the time as the Washington clown show post points out the White House script on the death of brutal terrorist Abu Bakar Al Baghdadi was short but president trump turned a somber announcement into a vivid forty minute news conference that included bravado detailed descriptions of military option rations questionable statements and self promotion from the first day I came to office and now we're getting close to three years I would say doc where's al-Baghdadi I want al-Baghdadi and we would kill terrorist leaders but they were names I never heard of they would names it weren't recognizable and they weren't the big names some good won some important ones but they weren't the big name I kept saying where's Al Baghdadi and a couple of weeks ago they were able to scope amount you know these people are very smart than not into the use of cell phones more than not they're very technically brilliant you know they use the Internet better than almost anybody in the world perhaps other than Donald Trump but they use the Internet incredibly well and what they've done with the Internet through recruiting and everything and that's why he died like a dog he died like a coward he who is screaming and crying and frankly I think it's something that should be brought out so that his followers and all of these young kids WANNA leave various countries including the United States they should see how he died now Admiral S- Ravidas ah yeah we'll we'll see we'll get to the the strategic importance of what we get to but again just underlining un-american language and and the sound of tyrants again he died like a dog died like a coward upbringing screaming it's just can you please explain to maybe three of Donald Trump supporters who fist when they hear that the downside of that ny the forty four American presidents who preceded him did not talk about casualties on the ward even if they were the most heinous casualties like Osama bin Laden are are are you name it or Japanese opponents at war are not cease why we we didn't talk that way or Qaddafi in Libya for example In every case Joe the problem here is there's is that internal desire to kind of take victory lap but it's counterproductive it comes across as unprofessional it's spiking the ball in the end zone and here's the real problem it's motivational for the other side make an argument that it's a deterrent I don't think so I think that that tape will be played particularly that image of the dog in the Arab world is well known as as an extremely negative and that'll become a recruiting tool that the Islamic state uses on the Internet and for the record I'd say they're better than Donald Trump there managing apparently to conduct a global operations without owning a shred of territory in Easter after we took away the caliphate from them which was another good accomplishment they still conducted a massive attack in Sri Lanka using the Internet to recruit proselytizing conduct the operation they will use this footage to motivate their followers to recruit more. It's really not how we WANNA play the Yes it is it is actually a much smaller level it's what you call basically press clippings from from locker from for locker uh-huh where somebody on the other side said something you cut out the press clippings you put it up and you used to inspire other people in something we don't want here let's let's let's let's go Richard Haass go to and talk about the impact of the death and we'll we'll get into some of the other things I obviously I remember us being celebrating at least most Americans Saar cow was killed I believe it was in two thousand six two thousand seven thinking that the guy that really was the inspiration for Isis and of course that just lead to more silence splinter groups we of course all celebrated we had our on the deck of the Missouri moment a little bit when Osama bin Laden was killed and two thousand eleven we're all cheering but of course out of that came the rise of Isis and so I'm wondering it's we see very important death but do we make the same one man is going to end the movement that he was so successful in spreading the short answer is yes there's no such thing as decapitation when comes to dealing with terrorists because whether you call them networks of movements they're not narrow organizations that are highly structured we're getting rid of the leadership essentially Abel's all the fighters they'll they'll reform they may splinter and so forth decentralisation there in formality in some ways is is a degree of strain so I think we've got to keep the accomplishment as meaningful as it is in perspective and more important justice important you've got to take steps back and say are we putting ourselves in a position where we can do this sort of thing again and again as we will need to do and there I think the jury's out or you've got to say it's going to become much more difficult we're not gonNA have the forces on the ground collecting the intelligence we're not gonNA have partners like the Syrian Kurds and other Kurds doing so much there's still questions about the willingness of this administration to work closely with its own intelligence community so again yesterday was an important day but we shouldn't exaggerate it and I'm really worried about going forward whether we're going to be able to repeat this because we're going

"We're dealing with. I wonder if we're going to see a change the rules yet again. After after we see the end of this actually Parker. The president has been all over the map on how he feels about this investigation on the one hand he says he would be happy to to sit down with Robert Muller. He never did that. And then he said he would never do it. Then he says, I'm happy if everybody sees the Miller report, but he also thinks it's a witch hunt and a hoax, and maybe he might use it to his advantage. According to Jonathan Lemaire on the campaign trail in twenty twenty does the White House have a concrete idea of what they wanna do. Or they in reality just waiting to find out. What's in the Muller report? They don't have a concrete idea in part because they like the rest of us. Don't know what is in the report. So it's really hard to push back on or respond to something where you don't quite know the content. I will say some people I've spoken to there. There is a plan people are reading it's maybe perhaps less of a plan than you might expect. But they are sort of going through what they think are the most likely scenarios to come out of that report in reading different responses accordingly, but you can imagine. President Trump if it turns out that he is completely exonerated as he claims he will be having a very different response than if the report contains some sort of smoking gun which to be clear, no one in the president's or believes will happen. So if they react negatively to this reports, given the way we've. The way we've been seeing them react does that does that necessarily mean. Or can we interpret that as meaning that there's something bad in the report for Donald Trump? Whereas if they react positively and they wanna use it to their advantage. And that is a tell that they feel that they were exonerated can we read into their their behavior? Well, I think I think some of their behavior will be in response to what if any is actually made public by the attorney general so so that will be kind of clear and fairly transparent. But then people you talked to you would expect right now, are you might expect at least the White House to be incredibly nervous. There were moments all through this investigation when they actually were nervous. They were panicked. When for instance, Michael Cohen that news broke. But right now, they're not super nervous. And there is a sense that it is going to be a bit of a nothing burger again, I'm not saying.

"God knows what's going to happen between now and then, but it does look like the gaps are closing a bit. All right, still ahead on morning. Joe Don Mcgann is out the White House counsel has headed for the door just a few months after sitting down with the special counsel. There are several new developments in the Russia probe involving rod Rosenstein and Roger stone with the midterm elections looming President Trump has been on the campaign trail to rally supporters for his fellow Republican candidates during a wide ranging interview with you. Societas press on Tuesday. The president was asked if you would take responsibility, should Republicans lose the house in the upcoming mid terms. As we told you yesterday, Trump said quote, no, I think I'm helping people. I don't believe anybody's ever had this kind of an impact after the AP reported yesterday that Trump dismissed suggestions that he might take responsibility as did his predecessor. President Trump went on the offensive tweeted AP headline was very different from my quote and meaning in the story, they just can't help themselves fake news, White House reporter, Jonathan Lemere spoke to MSNBC's, Chris Jenner. Yesterday to defend the reporting. You asked if he thought he would bear some responsibility. If the Republicans lose the house and the president said, no, I think I'm helping people. And then he took issue with this headline today that Trump tells AP he won't accept lame GOP loses house. Tell us about that part of the conversation. Sure. I mean, socio press. We certainly stand by the interview transcript is they're playing day. We asked the question. He answered no. So Joe, it was pretty clear what the president said. He said, if we win, it was me if we lose it was. In the draft grip. I mean, he's not even trying anymore. It's he look at the Saudi Bill. He tells his own people repeatedly during the campaign during campaign rallies made hundreds of millions of dollars from the Saudi's. I've made forty fifty. They like buying Trump's toys. I got so rich off the Saudis and says, it's fake news. Then I made any money off this audience and that he talks poor Jonathan Lemaire who is I feel so sorry for him because he didn't get these sleep last night, either watching the Red Sox and then. It's a transcript. Anything. So next day he can say, fake news and people that support him are so stupid in so dumb, and it's really insulting them. Then he thinks that stupid and that they're that dumb that they can't just read the transcript and see that he's lying through his teeth. He really, he, he really needs to try a little bit more. I mean, it's this point willy. It's just become embarrassed. Jonathan Lemaire actually tweeted out the full transcript of the interview. If you wanna go to his Twitter handle and read for yourself exactly what the president said. Joining us now, New York, national editor of the cook political report, Amy Walter and national political correspondent for NBC news and MSNBC. Steve Kornacki. His new book is the red and the blue, the nineties, and the. Great. Owlry cab. We'll just amazing at and put it on the back of it right there. Right. To some noises of approval. Let's look at Tennessee. I, we mentioned it come in if we can put that poll up here, guys, Tennessee Senate poll Marsha Blackburn in statistical tie with Phil Bredesen's forty seven, forty four is her lead there. Steve. I mentioned there was a New York Times poll few days ago or last week that had the spread at fourteen points four Blackburn what's going on in Tennessee. Well, the time link for that particular pose particularly long. It's a little different than what we've seen four polls. Now, I think basically this month and Tennessee, it's been Blackburn by five Blackburn by eight Blackburn by fourteen now Blackburn by three. So tough to say, if this shows that we take the fourteen and take the three and say something majors happen, or we can say, I think that over the summer, what we were typically seeing in this race was Bredesen's personal popularity was trumping his party label, so to speak in Tennessee. And I think sensory in Cavanaugh may be that was the event. Maybe it was just inevitable. But since around the start of this month, I think we have seen this trend towards what you'd call politic..

"Welcome back. As we mentioned this, the polite way to put it mixed messages tonight coming from Rudolph Giuliani, I'm whether or not Trump will answer Robert Muller's questions on obstruction of Justice. Earlier today, Giuliani told our guest, Jonathan Lemaire of the Associated Press that President Trump would not answer Muller's questions on obstruction of Justice in writing or in-person quote. That's a no go. That is not going to happen. Giuliani said, there will be no questions at all on obstruction. Meanwhile Giuliani tells NBC news earlier tonight, that obstruction questions are quote not ruled in or out. We have asked Jonathan Lemaire to stay with us for this conversation and joining in the conversation. Chuck Rosenberg, former US attorney for the eastern district of Virginia. Also a veteran, former senior official of the FBI. So Jonathan, because we're talking about your interview. It's been said one side of this matters, not what Rudy. He says, but when does it start mattering? These changes back and forth just and then the time since your interview with him? Yeah, I really Johnny. First of all, this is not the first time he's been inconsistent, right? And certainly his as much as he is title is president's lawyer. He's far more president's legal spokesman being more the public face of this, and part of that is to sort of move the goalposts onto what would need to happen for the president is sit down interview with with special counsel, but also to shape public perception as to what that interview could be eventually with. Of course, the endgame being Muller, we believe, write a report that end up DOJ to congress, and they'll make that decision and he's playing to those congress members into the people vote for them. That's where he is. That's his target audience, but as much as he gave mixed messages later tonight, he couldn't have been clear with me when we when we spoke earlier this evening, suggesting that two things that there would be no, ma- no questions about obstruction. The president would not feel them either in terms of sit down. Interview or written though he did not discount the idea that he would take some written questions on the Russia collusion angle, and that's in response to the Muller teams. Most recent letter just from a few days ago signaling that they would be up for written questions on obstruction. But Rudy was very careful again to change the move those goalposts just a little saying, well, we might be up for that that we really wanna talk about the idea of follow up questions. We want to know. We're not sure we're going to be agreeing to any five questions and we want to have that matter settled before the president answers. Anything at all. Okay. Chuck you're out in the Pacific, northwest, and thank you for taking time out of your trip to join us. Does any of what Rudy says matter? And my question to you is because Muller cannot speak and will not speak, what should we know about how the feds view all of this? Right. Good question. And I'll be polite to use the phrase mixed messages. Brian Rudy has been Mr. Giuliani has been consistently inconsistent. It's absolutely stunning, but. It's no longer surprising. But as a former federal prosecutor, I can tell you this while the Muller team would like to speak with the president. In fact, they'd like to speak with everybody who's involved at this investigation. They don't have too often in federal investigations. We don't get to talk to the target of the investigation. He's abroad or he won't speak with us or invokes is fifth amendment privilege not to speak with us. And so you can finish an investigation without speaking to the president. If Bob Muller decides he wants to push the issue, regardless of what Mr. Giuliani says, he simply issues a grand jury, subpoena and litigators that I don't know what he's thinking about doing because he won't talk..

"We know that over the last ten days or so we have seen it's reflected in his tweets as well as these private conversations. How upset he has been watching the Manafort trial day after day, the cable coverage, it's in his face, it's it's an assault. It is mostly you inescapable every day that he sees it there, and that he did is as he's told people around him feels like that's Muller's sort of opening act. But even though this trial of course is not about Russia, but he feels like it's Muller's hands involved. Obviously, Manafort was a prominent part of his campaign and it's a sense of what could still be to come. And either the president tells me around him. He doesn't believe Sunday to anything wrong, but he suggests that either a, he inadvertently broke the law perhaps or be he simply the victim of a witch-hunt stopped me if you've heard that before from the president. And in this case, he feels like that could be next, and that is so. That even though publicly, he suggesting that I'm not worried about Don, you're privately. He is done junior himself also very much taking this brash approach moving forward. He's become a very popular surrogate among Republicans for the midterm elections been crisscrossing the country, so he is not letting this slow him down. Big, thanks to our big three on a Wednesday night in August, Jonathan Lemaire, Robert Costa Barbara, mcquade. Thank you coming up a prominent member of congress who went big for Trump early arrested and charged by Trump appointee at the Justice department for something he might have been photographed doing at the White House on the lawn.

"And that's let's assume that Bob Muller and his team actually do contemplate either cutting down the scope of the questions or offering some written questions in lieu of an actual sit down interview. It may. Very well be that. The the mother team believes that any questions being answered by the president would be important for two reasons. One, it may very well informed the investigation about among other things. The president's thought process, his subjective intent to see whether when he was doing the things he is alleged to have done. He was doing it with a corrupt intent, and then to I don't wanna be cynical, but it may very well be that Bob Muller and his team are willing to negotiate the terms of the interview a little bit just to have the opportunity to interview the president because I think we've all seen the president has real challenges being consistent in his answers from one day to the next from one tweet to the next and the Muller investigation team knows full well that if the president answers questions either in writing or in an interview setting. And he lies to federal investigators each time he does it. He violates eighteen United States code section one thousand one for lying to federal investigators and each time he does it, it carries up to five years in prison. So the Muller investigative team may very well want to give the president the opportunity to be his own worst enemy, Jonathan Lemaire Glenn one that we just mentioned Rick gates. His name is metaphors, longtime deputy. We know he, of course, also talking to prosecutors. What's the significance of why he suddenly is not going to be testifying, walk us through what that means in this trial and going forward. Sure. That's a great question because I think we're all little bit surprised when we heard the prosecutor represented judge Ellis when judge Ellis pressed him because apparently I wasn't in the courtroom, but I spoke with people who were the prosecutor was showing a witness document and talking about Rick gates signature and judge Ellis said, you know what? Let's not. As time you can ask Mr. gates that and that's when the prosecutor, I think had to be responsive to the judge and say, well, you know what? Your honor. We're not entirely sure we're going to put Mr. gates on the stand in this trial, and that did come as a surprise to people. Let me tell you if they decide to decline to call Rick gates as a witness it is because they believe they have more than enough evidence to prove manafort's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. And actually, if we dig down a little bit more, I was a federal prosecutor for thirty years. I put countless cooperating witnesses on the stand, and if I was going to call that cooperating witness at trial, you can bet I would stand up in front of the jury and opening statements. And I would say, ladies and gentlemen, let me explain what a cooperating witness is. Let me let me tell you that even though the cooperating witness had his charges reduced in exchange for his agreement to testify truthfully against others. If he lies in court all. All of those charges are revived. He's facing more time in prison. He's facing perjury charges. He could be facing excessively after the fact charges if he lies in court. So the cooperating witness has everything to gain by telling the truth and everything to lose by lying even ally that might make it look like Mr. Manafort is more guilty. The reason I'm doing that in opening statement is because I want to be the one to frame for the jury, how to receive information from cooperating witness, will guess what? What I talked to people who watch the opening statement, the prosecutors in the eastern district of Virginia case didn't open like that. They open very generally on. Well, you'll hear some information about Mr. gates in crimes he committed. It may be that the prosecutors sort of lulled the defense team into thinking they were going to call Mr. gates and they may not call them at all. And there are a number reasons for that Glenn Kirschner. Thank you very much. Much and still ahead this morning, the president tweets, thinking the dictator of North Korea full remains.

"So we have an interest of questioning them back to you, Jeff Mason President Putin seemed to be a bit combative there. No. Did he did? And I think you know, President Putin doesn't take tough questions from journalists, very often. He does occasionally have these really long press conferences. But I, I think that the having a tough question from an American reporter is probably not something he gets on a regular basis and he bristle that a little bit, and but he was also pretty direct. I mean to my last question to him when I asked, did you want President Trump to win the election? He gave a very clear response, which was yes, I did. And did you get from that because because because because what I heard was did you want President Trump to win the election? And did you instruct your people to help him? That was correct me if I'm wrong. That was the full question right. No, you're right. That is exactly right. That is the full question and I, I don't know how to interpret the answer. Yes, I did. I think there's one interpretation and it's probably the most logical, which is that he didn't hear the second part of my question. And the reason I think that's logical as he had spent a good chunk of his answer earlier saying there had been no collusion and the same way the President Trump had that said, I did. You're right. I said in my question, did you want him to win? And did you destructive wanted to help him? And his answer was, yes, I did. So you could interpret that as being not only did he response to the first question, but the second one is well. President Putin said several times or at least one time in this conversation that he's a former intelligence officer, and you know, some people interpreted that as a dog whistle. Essentially, listen, I knew what I'm doing here and I know what it is that I want you to get from this, and I understand very well how to answer these questions, even though supposedly your intelligence community has all this intelligence on us and has indicted twenty-five of my friends, but I'm still not going to say to you, anything that you can use to essentially put me in the in the heart of this. What was your thinking after he did the circuitous answer to your questions and your your colleagues questions? Well, you know, I just think I think President Putin is is very smart and very happy to show the confidence that he has, and he's a politician in addition to being a former spy and the KGB leader. And so he he knows how to get around tough questions, but he also knows how to show dominance. And I think I think it was a chunk of all of those things that he was displaying in those answers. And I, I got your Email after the press. I hadn't senior year suggested question before I started, but I do think both his responses and President Trump's responses to both my question and the questions from my colleague, Jonathan Lemaire from the AP. Will go down as as pretty historic, no doubt. It was just a really unique and stunning moment I can guarantee you that because yes, you did get my Email a little little apron. I'm at least glad you here. I did here in Washington, the stunned nature of Washington. I mean, it was palpable. You could feel it all over the place during that whole news conference watching social media, the phones were ringing emails or popping. I mean, this was a historic moment, and I'm just wondering if you had any clue, something like that was going to happen when you walked into that news conference because we knew there was a possibility for something crazy to happen, but we're expecting anything like that. No. I mean, the answer to that is no, I was not. And I think that perhaps after a year and a half of covering President Trump, one should expect that more, but it there was just it was you mentioned the sense of being stunned from watching it from afar, there was a definite sense of being stunned within the room, and part of that is the context. The not only was President Trump standing next to the. The the leader of Russia, but President Trump's advisers had set up that press conference had set up that summit by saying to us to reporters in in in the preparatory call ahead time I met the president would focus on Russia's malign activities.

"A well fought battle, we did a great job on essentially it's very clear that he, thinks this question about second twelve Russian officers who are again accused of, attacking the American electoral system the whole issue is meant to undercut him he is completely focused on the fact that these people were not affiliated with, his campaign and has nothing to do with, him just to, say, it, one time, again and. I say it all the time There was. No collusion I didn't know the president There was nobody to collude with so he used it through, the prism of his own campaign and his election the. Democratic? System and the electoral process that was undermined right we ran a. Brilliant campaign and that's. Why I'm president thank you So then you know it's Putin's turned to answer and at this point, he basically doesn't have anything anymore Trump has already made. His? Case who is to be believed entered who's not to. Be believed You can trust no one if you if you take, this where did you, get this, idea that President. Trump trusts me or I trust. Him he defense the interest of the United States of America and? I do defend the, interests of the Russian federation. And he essentially says you know there's no proof we. Should be guided by facts could you name a single fact, that would definitively prove the collusion This is nonsense Just like the, president recently mentioned just listen to. Your own president he just denied that, we did this, so you know don't take my. Word. For it yeah take your own president's. Word for it that was really striking because a lot of these encounters are about message and what set in public and what is. Seen in public And the spectacle of the two of them up there both defending Russia and essentially rolling their eyes and calling. Ridiculous the basis of a federal investigation that's been legitimised by the entire intelligence community of the United States was something okay final question from the United States who go to Jonathan Lemaire from the AP the second American question the final question? Was from the Associated, Press reporter and he basically just put it? To President Trump, very directly who do you believe just now President Putin denied having anything to do with. The election year in two thousand sixteen every US intelligence agency has concluded that Russia did what who, my first question for you sir. Is who do you believe my second, question is would, you now with the whole world. Watching, tell President Putin would you denounce what. Happened in two thousand sixteen warned him to never do it again this is kind of the final chance for Trump to say something Judgmental at all about the Russian, interference in the US election in front of the man who directed that's right so let me just say that we have two thoughts you have groups that are wondering why. The. FBI never took the server and sort of pivots to say DEA of where. Hillary Clinton's emails what, happened to the servers of the Pakistani gentlemen that worked on the DNC where are the servers they're missing where. Are they what happened to Hillary Clinton's emails thirty three thousand emails gone just gone I think in Russia they wouldn't begun so easily why didn't the FBI can't access to the servers at the dancy that were hacked into why was the? FBI told to leave, the office of the Democratic National Committee I've? Been wondering that, I've been asking that for months and months and I've been tweeting it out and calling. It out on social media where is the server and he essentially I. Don't know which to believe. And he kind of indicates the he leans toward Putin I have President Putin he just said it's not Russia I will say this I don't see any reason why? It would be but I really do want to see the server, but I have I have confidence in both parties and he said I have confidence in both. Parties both parties Both Putin and his intelligence officials so I have great confidence in my intelligence people but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful than his denial today essentially as if. He's making excuses for Putin who's sitting there. Smart gang, and looks like feeling very good about himself Julie what is the reaction in the room, at this moment I mean what is it like to be in that room as the president of the United States rejects his own.

Great intelligence agencies always I have felt very strongly that Russia's actions had no impact on the outcome of the election Totally clear and saying I've said this many times I. Accept our intelligent communities conclusion Russia's meddling in the two thousand sixteen election took place Other people also so a lot of people out there There was no collusion at all And people have seen that they've seen that strongly. The house has already. Come out I strongly on that a lot of people have come out strongly and I thought that I made myself very clear. By having just reviewed the, transcript now I have to say, I came back and? I said what is? Going on what's the big deal So, I've got a transcript? I actually went out Split At answer And I realized that there is a need for some clarification should have. Been obvious I thought it would, be obvious but I would like to clarify just in case it wasn't sentence in. My remarks, I said the word would instead of what Should have been. I don't, see any reason why I wouldn't Wouldn't be rushing Casta repeated What instead of what The sense And I thought I would be maybe a little bit unclear on the transcript or unclear on the actual video should. Have been I don't see any reason why it wouldn't. Be Russia Sort of a double negative Okay This do you want to? Hear what do you wanna hear the? Original do you want to hear the original statement shall include l. l. include some of of Lumieres Jonathan Lemaire of the Associated Press some of his his question and the first part of the answer which was about, servers but if you can get through the thirty seconds of, servers you're gonna hear announced what happened in two thousand? Sixteen would you warned him to never do it? Again So let me just say that we have, two thoughts you have groups that are wondering. Why the FBI never took, the server why haven't they taken the server. Why was, the FBI told to. Leave the office of the. Democratic National Committee, I've been wondering. That I've been asking. That for months and months and I've been tweeting, it out and calling it out on social media where. Is the server I want to know? Where is the server and what is? The server saying with that being said all I can do is ask the question my people came to me Dan Coats came to me and some others they said they think it's Russia I have a President Putin. He just said it's not Russia I will say this I, don't see any reason why it would be but I? Really do want to see the server hurt is It is You, are you are you? Going to are you going to? Buy it you're going to give them the pass that is a byproduct of of. A bowl Wow I? Mean that's that's just focusing on? One thing because that whole press conference was kind of like a a love fest But let let's let the president go on and. And. Explain a little. Bit. More so, you can put that in that I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself okay so clarify things I One foot hold the other on a banana peel. Thing I don't think it makes it any. Better I think it makes it. Worse I think it makes the whole thing worse now it looks like you know what it sounds, like it's, when you catch your kid doing something in there and they start making up stories. Left right three or four stories deep you. Know they finally will give deserve That's all you could ask the same out?

Countries including France will step this effort on our behalf we provide military cargo aircraft to deliver the humanitarian cargo. In today out brought up this issue with President Trump I. Think, there is plenty of. Things to to look into The crucial thing here is that huge amount of refugees are in Turkey in Lebanon in Jordan. In the states that border adjacent to Syria if we help Help them the migratory pressure upon the European states will drop will be decreased manifold. And I believe it's crucial from any point of view from humanitarian point of view, from the point of view of of helping people have, to the refugees And in general I agree I concur with President Trump our military rate. Quite successfully together they do get along and I hope they will be able to do. So in future we will keep working. In the, format I, mean Russia, Turkey and Iran which I informed. President Trump abode But we do stand ready to link this efforts to this oh of, so-called small group of states so that. The process. Would be a broder one that'd be a multidimensional one and.
