Trump Russia: Reporters press president over US election meddling


The White House has insisted it believes Russia is still a threat to US democracy, following confusion over comments by President Donald Trump. Earlier, a reporter asked Mr Trump whether Moscow was still targeting the US and the president shook his head and said: “No”. Such a response would put him at odds with his own intelligence agencies’ assessments. However, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders later said Mr Trump was saying “no” to further questions from journalists – rather than answering the reporter.
