Trump Says He Would Have Told Flynn To Discuss Sanctions

Trump insisted, however, that the only reason he asked for Flynn's resignation is because he "didn't tell our Vice President properly and then he said he didn't remember, so either way that wasn't very satisfactory to me".

In his first solo press conference from the White House as President, Donald Trump mocked some journalists' questions and offered often snarky responses as he was peppered with queries about Russian Federation, which he addressed mostly by outlining how the news stories were all wrong and he had no deals or connections with the country.

"I see stories of chaos, chaos, yet it is the exact opposite", he said.

The leaks are real.

Smith: "And apparently President Trump was aware of it at least 2-3 weeks ago, and it was only when the media was able to get sources on this and bring to light exactly what had happened that he was sacked, so that's certainly a big question".

CNN said high level advisors close to Mr Trump were in "constant" contact with Russians known to USA intelligence during the campaign.

"No. Nobody that I know of".

Mr Trump's transition spokeswoman Hope Hicks said at the time that the claim was "not accurate". Russian Federation is a ruse. "I don't have any deals in Russian Federation", he said, adding that he has talked to Vladimir Putin twice since winning the election in November. "The whole Russian Federation thing is a ruse". "It was-it's a joke, and the people mentioned in the story, I notice they were on television today saying they never even spoke to Russian Federation". "Russia is fake news".

"Mike Flynn is a fine person, and I asked for his resignation", Trump told reporters. To be honest, I inherited a mess.

"At home and overseas, a mess". In an unusual move, the White House unlisted the press conference, making it less accessible for viewing. Tomorrow you will say: "Donald Trump rants and raves", he added.

All three iPhone models in 2017 to feature wireless charging
Canalys market researcher and analyst Daniel Matte said that the OLED displays will definitely be a factor in the price increase. The backing could be problematic for many users, since the iPhone's glass screens are known for cracking and shattering easily.

Tama believed "there will be continuing tensions there, whether people who are more political professionals are able to establish more regular process in running the government".

In one unusual exchange near the end of the news conference, Trump called on a questioner, asking if he was "a friendly reporter".

But US House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes told reporters on Tuesday he wanted to focus on the leaks, and said the Federal Bureau of Investigation should explain why Mr Flynn's conversation had been recorded.

The news conference was "the President's idea, 100 per cent", the official said.

"I was given that information", Mr Trump replied.

"We have made incredible progress".

In October past year, Trump said that he "loved WikiLeaks", the website that made its name disclosing the U.S. diplomatic cables in 2010, though, at the time, Trump was specifically referring to the revelations of the behind-the-scenes machinations in the Democratic Party. CNN reporting also backed up the Times story.

"We had a very smooth roll out of the travel ban".

The US President displayed a sense of anger and grievance rarely vented by a President in public, CNN reported.

The president announced he would issue a new executive action next week to "comprehensively" protect the US.
