They add this: "Mr. Trump's job approval rose to 45% in a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, the highest mark of his presidency and up 1 percentage point from June". He was one of Trump's earliest backers in Congress in the presidential primary, co-chaired Trump's campaign in Pennsylvania and served on Trump's transition team.

USA intelligence agencies have consistently advised President Trump that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election-a position President Trump says he accepts.

"People have lost focus of the good that has come out of that meeting".

Legal analysts noted that intelligence agents had good reason to suspect Page had a relationship with Russia, and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation found much of the dossier to be credible; they noted that four judges, all appointed by Republicans, signed off on the Page warrant and that Mueller recently obtained indictments on a dozen Russian intelligence officials on charges of election sabotage.

Democrats and Republicans questioned why Trump sat down last Monday for a two-hour face-to-face meeting with Putin in Helsinki with only translators present. Instead, he directed his ire at Democrats and USA officials, calling special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian interference a "disaster" and a "witch hunt".

"The sentence should have been, 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia.' Sort of a double negative", he said.

This is the latest in a series of clarifications on the topic of Russian Federation by the White House over the course of the last seven days since President Trump's summit meeting with Putin where he expressed that he had "confidence in both parties", referring to the United States and Russian Federation.

The man he is trying to unseat in November's election, two-term Democratic U.S. Sen. That's at the same time he's facing criticism for the outcome of his summit with Russia's Vladimir Putin last week. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, did not shy away from criticizing Trump's comments in Helsinki. "I don't understand the apparent blindness (Trump) has to Putin's hostile acts".

The poll comes days after liberal legislators and the mainstream media trashed the President's face-to-face meeting with Putin, with former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan going so far as to call the summit "treasonous".

Putin and other Russian officials have said that Trump and Putin reached several agreements at the July 16 summit in Helsinki, their first full-fledged meeting since Trump took office on January 2017.

Democratic pollster Fred Yang, who helped conduct the NBC/WSJ poll, pointed to media coverage of Trump for the strong support he's seeing among Republican voters. Vice President Mike Pence, meanwhile, is headlining a fundraiser for Barletta in Philadelphia on Monday.
