U.S. businesses could face an uphill battle, however, if they aim to block or defang the legislation. Democrats, liberals and college graduates are the only groups in the poll among whom a majority say Trump went too far in supporting Putin.
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats issued a statement Saturday saying that he did not mean "to be disrespectful or criticize the actions" of President Donald Trump during a recent interview in which he appeared surprised to learn that the White House had chose to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to Washington in the fall.
Trump fielded bipartisan backlash following remarks he made during the press conference alongside Putin in Helsinki, Finland, prompting the president and his officials to issue several corrections throughout the week.
"[Trump] speaks in ways that people don't feel comfortable, but the way he acts is to impose the greatest painful punishments" on Putin and Russia, Bossert said. "Sort of a double negative".
Referring to Trump's claim later that he meant to say "wouldn't" instead of "would" at the summit, Rubio said, "I'm glad he came back the next day and sort of walked that back". "Why else did he not want anyone else in the room?" he said.
"I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed", he wrote. "I know it's hard", Graham said.
Trump to Iran: 'never, ever threaten' US again
He accused the United States of working to weaken and "overthrow" the clerical establishment and create divisions in the country. The US has provided a list of 12 demands that says Tehran needs to accept if it seeks relief from Washington's threats.
Christian Pulisic inspires Borussia Dortmund to victory over Liverpool
Better was to follow for the American, a target for Sunday's opponents, as he put the Germans into the lead with a minute to play. For all their exciting wingers, and there are many of them, Dortmund are lacking that killer touch in front of goal.
Weather: Stormy Saturday night on tap with heavy rain, winds
Highs will be slightly cooler but still think we'll be in the low to mid 90s with heat indices in the upper 90s to around 100°. More of these scattered showers or a T'storm will be rolling through on tonight with lows in the mid-60s.
CBS' Brennan noted that Trump, through his Sunday tweets, was again hitting the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation and accusing them of illegal behavior. Putin has been responsible for war crimes, Rubio added, but we have to engage because Putin has nuclear weapons.
"The sentence should have been: I don't see any reason why I wouldn't - or why it wouldn't be Russian Federation", the president said Tuesday before a meeting with Republican members of Congress. "My admittedly awkward response was in no way meant to be disrespectful or criticize the actions of the president", Mr Coats said. "The rhetoric can undermine policy and influence policy, but I don't think we've reached that point here with this".
The Post-ABC poll, conducted Wednesday through Friday, finds that overall, 33 percent of Americans approve of Trump's handling of his meeting with Putin, while 50 percent disapprove. But he said election meddling should not be tolerated from any country.
Rubio pointed to congressional efforts on Russian Federation, including a bill from him and Maryland Democratic Sen.
Rubio warned that Russian Federation will try to interfere in future elections and "they'll be better at it", he told Brennan.
In addition to his pointed remarks about Russia, Rubio also anticipated that there could be further sanctions from the USA on Nicaragua, given recent violence in the Latin American nation. "If any one of them gets way with the kind of attack Russian Federation did, it only empowers them and gives them more reason to keep probing, and possibly damaging or destroying certain institutions in our economy and our government". Former Trump Homeland Security Adviser and now ABC News contributor Tom Bossert disagreed with Schiff's assessment, telling Stephanopoulos in the same interview, "It's an easy, cheap shot to say the president's been compromised by the Russians".
