Former Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele said President Trump sounded like an “asset” standing next to his “handler” during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.
When asked w hether he would condemn the Russian government for election meddling, Trump said: “I don’t see any reason why it would be” Russia who hacked Democrats during the 2016 election.
“That’s how a press conference sounds when an Asset stands next to his Handler,” Steele said in a tweet weighing in on the president’s remarks.
"My people came to me…they said they think it's Russia. I have President Putin. He just said it's not Russia. I will say this, I don't see any reason why it would be."

The former RNC chairman’s remarks came shortly after Trump in Helsinki downplayed the Russian government’s interference in the 2016 presidential election and slammed the special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
