Pervasive efforts to undermine "america democracy" : Trump under fire over Russian comments

Pervasive efforts to undermine america democracy
US President Donald Trump has come in for a barrage of criticism after he defended Russia over claims of meddling in the 2016 elections.

US intelligence officials and senior Republicans denounced the president as "shameful" and "disgraceful" after he refused to challenge Russian leader Vladimir Putin over claims it meddled in the election that saw him beat his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Republican Senator John McCain said Mr Trump's seeming acceptance of Mr Putin's denial was a historical "low point" for the US presidency and the Helsinki summit between the two leaders was a "tragic mistake".

"Today's press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump's naivete, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate," Mr McCain said.

"No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant."
Taking direct issue with the president who appointed him, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said US spy agencies had been "clear" and "fact-based" in their assessment that Russia interfered in the presidential race two years ago - an assessment that Mr Trump refused to endorse in Helsinki.

Mr Coats added that Russia remained behind "ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".
***Voilà l'homme tout entier, s'en prenant à sa chaussure alors que c'est son pied le coupable. Ca devient inquiétant. Un des larrons fut sauvé. C'est un pourcentage honnête.
