Despite Helsinki criticism, Trump's job approval up a point from last month

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell speaks to reporters at the Capitol as fallout continued over U.S. President Donald Trump's Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Washington U.S

Based on the fact that no President has been tougher on Russian Federation than me, they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats.

My Republican colleagues - once rightfully critical of President Obama's engagement strategy with Russian leader Vladimir Putin - have to end their willful ignorance of the damage Trump is doing both domestically and internationally.

India's multi-billion dollar military equipment market coupled with its dexterous handling of simultaneous relations with the U.S. and Russian Federation has helped it secure a waiver against sanctions that Washington had threatened to impose.

Whitman said that the blunder illustrated Trump's "inability to articulate" and emphasized that the president doesn't recognize the power of his words.

Eight days after the Helsinki summit, the backlash on US President Donald Trump is now felt on his approval numbers and leadership approach, according to a latest poll by Quinnipiac University.

The expression of concern about Russian meddling is a change in tone for the president, who has repeatedly expressed doubts about Russia's role in interfering in the 2016 USA election.

Graham: Trump Is "Confused" About Russian Meddling

"The Russians better quit messing around in our elections", Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell told reporters, adding that he was open to legislation to put pressure on Moscow. Trump's approval is up one percentage point from June and is at its highest point relative to previous polls of presidential approval jointly conducted by the Wall Street Journal and NBC News reports Breitbart News.

Although multiple polls taken during the Helsinki summit fallout - including the American Barometer poll - showed majorities of Americans disapproved of Trump's performance in the news conference with Putin after their private meeting, a clear majority of respondents still think engaging with Russian Federation is beneficial and worth pursuing. A USA legislation, Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA), says sanctions must be imposed against those dealing with Russian Federation.

Instead, anger about what some USA lawmakers saw as a too-deferential performance by Trump in Helsinki and his failure to publicly confront Putin over Moscow's alleged meddling in US politics may have made things worse.

And despite the backlash, the incident doesn't appear to have affected the president's popularity, with Kevin McLaughlin from Cogent Strategies Principle stating on an MSNBC panel on Sunday night that Russian Federation doesn't appear to be a key issue for Trump supporters. Many Republicans joined Democrats in criticizing Trump's performance.

"In short, nobody is expecting anything good to happen". With the recent influx of political turmoil in our country, his true stars and stripes have been appearing more and more, as Chris reminds us that he is a real-life Captain America with every takedown of neo-Nazis crisis and conservative hypocrisy.
