Trump says he'll counteract any Russian Federation meddling in midterms

07 March 2018

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..."

"No, because we'll counteract whatever they do", Trump said, going on to encourage states to include an analog backup to avoid attempts to hack electronic systems.

Just a couple of hours later, news broke that Gary Cohn, one of Trump's top economic advisers, is leaving the administration, after apparently losing an internal struggle over steel and aluminum tariffs. "I like seeing it", he said. "They can do whatever they like, but if they do that then we put a big tax of 25% on their cars and believe me they won;t be doing that very long".

"I think its important for us to try to find a way to cooperate between the European Union and the USA", said Lofven.

"The new Fake News narrative is that there is CHAOS in the White House", Trump tweeted.

The nation's top intelligence official says the Trump administration is getting ready to slap new sanctions on Russians over Moscow's meddling in the presidential election. Trump also complained about a $500 billion trade deficit with China; it was a $375 billion deficit in 2017.

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.
