Donald Trump under-fire over Putin summit performance

Donald Trump has rowed back on his failure to back his own intelligence agencies’ evaluations of Russia meddling in his election in 2016. Yesterday he said he believed President Putin’s denials of involvment at their Helsinki summit. Tonight he said “I accept” US intelligence agencies’ conclusions on Russian meddling. What do Trump voters make of his controversial visit to Europe last week and his summit with Vladimir Putin yesterday. We are in Michigan, a state that swung away from the Democrats and helped deliver a Trump Presidency.
