After President Trump’s remarks to reporters aboard Air Force One earlier Saturday, in which he said Russian President Vladimir Putin told him the Kremlin had no part in meddling into the 2016 U.S. elections, the media has been abuzz over the statement.

Sen. John McCain also strongly condemned Trump’s remarks, which many are taking as a sign that Trump has “thrown American intel agencies under the bus” on foreign soil.

President Trump shot out two statements on Twitter Saturday night, saying that Russia has agreed to help fight ISIS in Syria, and criticizing those who are condemning him for wanting to have a good relationship with Russ.

“Met with President Putin of Russia who was at #APEC meetings. Good discussions on Syria. Hope for his help to solve, along with China the dangerous North Korea crisis. Progress being made,” Trump said in his first tweet.

Then he added, “When will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. There always playing politics – bad for our country. I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly help!”

In a third tweet, he wrote, “Does the Fake News Media remember when Crooked Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, was begging Russia to be our friend with the misspelled reset button? Obama tried also, but he had zero chemistry with Putin.”
