And Trump said he was not anxious that Moscow will meddle in the upcoming midterm elections because the US will take steps to prevent it.
"The Russians had no impact on our votes whatsoever", Trump said at a press conference alongside Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven Tuesday, despite an ongoing investigation into Russia's interference in the election.
"We're doing a very, very deep study and we're coming with some ... very strong suggestions on the '18 election..."

But Trump said Tuesday during a joint press conference with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven that people love working in the White House because it's got "tremendous energy", though some people "change". We'll do it in a very loving way. "Sometimes they want to go out and do something else, but they all want to be in the White House".
"When we're behind on every single country, trade wars aren't so bad, you know what I mean?"
"I think that's a great idea".
It's not quite clear exactly what Trump is referring to in his remarks. "They can do more but I think they've done more than they've ever done for our country before", Trump said.
