: "I think by stating the fact that [@POTUS] said that Russia interfered with our election, that's a pretty bold call-out of another world leader."
: "[@POTUS] has been extremely tough on Russia and to say anything different [is] just not true."
: "@POTUS and his administration are working very hard to make sure that Russia is unable to meddle in our elections as they have done in the past and as we have stated."
"The president was saying no to answering questions," says @PressSec, clarifying earlier response from @POTUS when he was asked about whether Russia is still a threat. "He does believe they would certainly target U.S. elections again."
Trump to the pool at the end of the Cabinet meeting: "There has never been a president as tough on Russia as I have been."
Asked if Russia is still targeting the US, @POTUS shakes his head and says "no."
Trump: "There has been no president ever as tough as I have been on Russia President Putin knows that better than anybody, and he's not happy about it."
