President Trump has slammed the ‘Deep State’ for wanting World War 3 over long-lasting peace with Russia.
Following Trump’s summit with Putin in Helsinki this week, the President fired off a tweet storm Wednesday morning, declaring that “Some people HATE the fact that I got along well with President Putin.”
Infowars.com reports:Trump started off by claiming that many within the intelligence community, in the higher echelons, were very happy with his performance at the summit.
“We got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match. Big results will come!” Trump tweeted:
The President then claimed that positive results will come out of the summit, as they did with the “acknowledged triumph” of the NATO meeting, where member states agreed to put up more funding.
During the clarification statement, Trump said “In a key sentence in my remarks, I said the word ‘would’ instead of ‘wouldn’t.’”
“The sentence should have been, ‘I don’t see any reason why I wouldn’t, or why it wouldn’t be Russia,’” the President said Tuesday.
“So just to repeat it, I said the word ‘would’ instead of ‘wouldn’t,’ and the sentence should have been — and I thought I would maybe be a little bit unclear on the transcripts or unclear on the actual video — the sentence should have been, ‘I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia.’” Trump stated.
The clarification was widely mocked, with CNN leading the charge. Host Erin Burnett asked “Did the dog eat his homework, too?” “[H]ow stupid does President Trump think we Americans are?”
Former CIA Director Michael Hayden also lambasted Trump, claiming that his attempt to smooth over the backlash only “made things worse” for himself.
“All that showed was that once again the president of the United States will say anything that he believes will suit his needs for the precise moment in which he is located,” Hayden said, adding “It is not anchored on anything outside of himself and his immediate needs.”
“What you had was, frankly, a hostage video with the president under duress saying what he had to say to meet the needs of the people who, off camera, were making demands,” Hayden admitted.
