Chuck Todd Denounces Trump’s Trashing Of American Press, US Intelligence Community On World Stage





NBC Meet The Press host Chuck Todd lambasted President Trump on Thursday for using his press conference in Poland to attack the American press and U.S. intelligence community, suggesting it was everything Russian President Vladimir Putin wanted to hear.

“A trashing of the American press corps and Intel community in Eastern Europe of all places. Could Putin have asked for anything more?” Todd tweeted after Trump claimed that “nobody really knows for sure” if Russia interfered in the presidential election.

Speaking at a joint press conference in Warsaw with Polish President Andrzej Duda, Trump once again cast doubt on the U.S. intelligence community’s unanimous conclusion that Russia interfered in last year’s election, his first time doing so during an international trip as president.

“I think it was Russia, but I think it was probably other people and/or countries, and I see nothing wrong with that statement,” he said. “Nobody really knows. Nobody really knows for sure.”




Trump, who is scheduled to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time as president at the annual G-20 summit, also attacked US news outlets NBC and CNN, calling them “fake news.”
