The prepared statement of US President Donald Trump is seen on his desk as he speaks to reporters in Washington on Tuesday, July 17. Trump was clarifying remarks he made the day before at his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. On his papers was a handwritten addition he made that said "THERE WAS NO COLUSION" -- with the final word missing an L. During his joint news conference with Putin, Trump declined to endorse the US intelligence community's assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 election, saying Putin was "extremely strong and powerful" in his denial. Back in Washington, facing bipartisan fury over his glowing remarks about Putin, Trump said he misspoke, and he voiced his support for US intelligence agencies and vowed to take action to prevent further attacks.
