Trump says Russian Federation had 'no impact' on 2016 election votes

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats left listens to Defense Intelligence Agency Dir. Lt. Gen. Robert Ashely Jr. right testify before the Senate Armed Services Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington Tuesday

The president said the United States would closely monitor the vote to ensure its integrity. Trump says: "I still have some people that I want to change (always seeking perfection)". Trump said Monday that he's not backing down from his plan despite the criticism from GOP leaders.

"I think they're honest also because the sanctions and what we're doing with respect to North Korea, including the great help that we've been given from China".

Trump mentioned that his daughter and White House adviser, Ivanka Trump, recently watched the USA defeat Sweden's men's curling team at the Olympic Games last month in South Korea. It has tremendous spirit.

Trump said "there will be people - I'm not going to be specific - that change", but that he wouldn't have any trouble replacing staffers.

The White House has said the two will discuss trade and security during Tuesday's meetings. They all want a piece of that Oval Office, they want a piece of the West Wing.

The president was pushing back against news report the White House is again being consumed by dysfunction and disarray.

Trump has been upset at previously negotiated trade deals he said have hurt the US economy and cost manufacturing jobs.

Cohn, the director of the National Economic Council, has been the leading internal opponent to Trump's planned tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum.

He's not afraid to propose a move that isn't popular with some in his party. Trump responded by threatening tariffs on European cars. "As a Swede, I of course support the efforts of the European Union to achieve trade with fewer obstacles and as few as possible". He added, "The trade war hurts them it doesn't hurt us". "We haven't been given credit for this but we've actually been working very hard on the '18 election and the '20 election coming up".

As he made the threat, Löfven looked on calmly and said trade issues were the purview of the European Union (of which Sweden is a member).

While Trump conceded that there was "certainly" meddling, he offered the caveat that "other countries, maybe other individuals", and not just Russian Federation, may have been involved.

Russian Federation has been found by multiple investigations and agencies to have sought to influence the last presidential election by backing candidates, including Trump, who opposed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

"I continue to be concerned about what other countries do in response to that", he stated. "And we are having strong backup systems", he said. One of the things [with] voting [is] called paper. "Not highly complex computers".

"They can do whatever they like, but if they do that, then we put a big tax of 25 percent on their cars, and believe me, they won't be doing it very long", Trump said. "They make it nearly impossible for us to do business with them and yet they send their cars and everything else back into the United States", Trump said.

Trump has been accused of trying to paint immigrants and refugees as criminals.

Sweden has taken a proportionately large number of refugees, primarily from Syria, but the prime minister said early problems have begun smoothing out.

"Me", he joked before adding that no one in the room got his joke. He added that he didn't mind taking "a little heat" for his past comments because he "proved to be right". "But you do have a problem, and I know the problem will slowly disappear - hopefully, rapidly disappear". "It will be a loving, loving way, and they'll like us better and they'll respect us much more". "We have dealt with it".

He also says his government has dedicated more resources to police and cracking down on organized crime and terrorism. So we do a lot to combat that.
