Trump says he believes North Korea is 'sincere'

Trump vows to counteract any Russian meddling in November elections

"I've conveyed that to the President", the PM said.

Hours later, White House economic adviser Gary Cohn, who has opposed the tariffs, announced his plans to depart the White House, another signal that the president intends to go through with the penalties.

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

He also said he's not concerned about Russian Federation interfering with the 2018 midterm elections because his administration will push back on any attempts to do so.

"Why on earth hasn't the administration found anyone to sanction?" Trump will meet with Swedish business representatives midday Tuesday before his news conference.

Various agencies, including Homeland Security, are studying it very carefully, he asserted.

Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, asked who should lead efforts to counter Russian Federation with this year's elections "right around the corner".

"You don't want your system of votes to be compromised in any way and we won't allow that to happen", Trump said.

But when asked by Sen. Coats said there were things the administration is doing, but they could only be discussed in a classified session.

The president emphasized the importance of steel and aluminum production to the United States, saying it's essential for defense and only a fraction of what it once was.

Trump says he's not anxious about Russian Federation meddling in the 2018 midterm elections. When asked about urging from Republican leaders including House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., that he back away from his pledge to impose a 25 percent tariff on steel and a 10 percent tariff on aluminum, Trump was defiant, repeating a frequent claim from the campaign trail and even earlier that the USA has been taken advantage of by other countries.




During a joint press conference with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, President Donald Trump claimed that "everybody wants to work in the White House" - and Twitter didn't attempt to stifle their guffaws.

So far, top intelligence officials have said, the USA has responded weakly to Russia's disinformation campaign to sow discord in America and raise doubts about the integrity of the presidential election.

"The United States has been taken advantage of by other countries both friendly and not so friendly for many, many decades", Trump said, complaining about what he said was the United States's $800 billion trade deficit. "They transship all through other countries and you'll see that a country that doesn't even have a steel mill is sending us 3 per cent steel, for our country", he said.

"We'll counteract it very strongly", Trump said. "And they love this White House because we have energy like rarely before", Trump said.

Trump didn't give more specifics on how his administration would do that but did recommend states use a paper backup system to maintain voting integrity.

So China doesn't send us two percent; they send us a much, much higher level than that, but it's called transshipping.

That approach has anxious some lawmakers, who say the administration isn't doing enough to prevent election interference in the future.

In the hearing last week, Rogers told Congress that he thinks Russian President Vladimir Putin has determined there's "little price to pay" for meddling and therefore will continue to direct efforts to do so. Most recently, Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell warned that the tariffs could damage the American economy. McDonough also complained that lawmakers have shown a "stunning lack of urgency about this question" - especially top GOP leaders.

Asked "to what do you owe this recent openness to talk", Trump replied dryly "me". Instead, his office provides responses whenever reporters inquire about accusations like McDonough's, he said. And then I make a decision.

Coats suggested that sanctions also could be imposed on additional individuals as well.

America's oldest allies in Europe, however, should expect much different treatment from the US president. Believe me, everybody wants to work in the White House. "Kelly has taken the position that we need to shorten that list". Pat Roberts, R-Kan. "I don't think he's reconsidering, but I think he's trying to figure out what his best step is forward".
