Trump fights back, says ‘people at higher ends of intelligence’ loved his presser in Helsinki

President Donald Trump spoke out against the “haters” who “wanted to see a boxing match” between him and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In an early morning tweet on Wednesday, Trump promised that “big things will come” from his summit with Putin, despite the firestorm of backlash he received for seeming to agree with the Russian leader that his government did not interfere in U.S. elections.

Though he was accused by many of ignoring the findings of his own intelligence agencies, with even former CIA Director John Brennan calling his comments “treasonous,” the president said “many people at the higher ends of intelligence” actually loved his press conference with Putin.

The president on Tuesday walked back his remarks saying he misspoke.

Following his early morning post on Twitter, Trump tweeted that while last week’s NATO meeting in Brussels was an “acknowledged triumph,” the meeting with Putin will prove to be “an even greater success.”

Trump had slammed Brennan as “a very bad guy” in an interview with Fox News Tucker Carlson which aired Tuesday.

“I think Brennan is a very bad guy and if you look at it a lot of things happened under his watch,” Trump said. “I think he’s a very bad person.”

In another tweet on Wednesday, the president called out those with “Trump Derangement Syndrome” who would rather go to war with Russian than see the president getting along with Putin.

Sen. Rand Paul defended Trump amid the backlash, saying the president has endured months of pressure under “a partisan witch hunt to go after him to try to say somehow there was collusion with Russia.”
