Kirsters Baish| It’s been pretty hilarious watching the mainstream media and liberal America lose their minds over President Trump’s performance at Monday’s joint summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.
Leftist media and politicians have been trying to claim that just because Trump reminded everyone that the FBI and the Obama administration had covered up Hillary Clinton’s crimes meant that he was claiming that Russian interference in the 2016 United States presidential election never happened.
The truth of the matter is that President Trump has admitted for a while now that there was definitely Russian interference. He just also explained that this was not the reason that he won the election. President Trump went on to take out a slip of paper that proved that the media has been lying all along.
Take a look at the video below:

Below is part of President Donald Trump’s statement on the matter:
“I have felt very strongly that while Russia’s actions had no impact at all on the outcome of the election, let me be totally clear in saying that — and I’ve said this many times — I accept our intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election took place. It could be other people also. There’s a lot of people out there.
There was no collusion at all, and people have seen that and they’ve seen that strongly. The House has already come out very strongly on that. A lot of people have come out strongly on that. I thought that I made myself very clear by having just reviewed the transcript. Now, I have to say, I came back and I said, what is going on? What’s the big deal?
So I got a transcript. I reviewed it. I actually went out and reviewed a clip of an answer that I gave and I realized that there is a need for some clarification. It should have been obvious, I thought it would be obvious but I would like to clarify just in case it wasn’t. 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.’
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 be maybe a little bit unclear on the transcript or unclear on the actual video. The sentence should have been I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia. Sort of a double negative.
