Earlier Wednesday, Trump claimed that no USA president has been as "tough" as him on Russian Federation.

"In a key sentence in my remarks, I said the word "would" instead of 'wouldn't, '" Trump said.

The president now says he accepts that meddling did happen, but insists it did not intefere with the result of the election which saw him become president. Sanders also said the White House believes the Russian threat of targeting U.S. elections "still exists".

Bannon, a former Goldman Sachs banker, told the business-minded crowd that "free trade is a radical idea", and that tariffs are good for the economy. "I think we did extremely well".
