President Trump said Wednesday that “many haters” were bothered by his good relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who he had a summit with earlier in the week in Helsinki, Finland.

Mr. Trump claimed “so many people at the higher ends” of the intelligence community approved of his comments at the press conference, while critics, “would rather go to war than see this.”

The president continued using his argument from Tuesday, saying that the Helsinki summit was more successful than his time at the NATO summit. He explained that Mr. Putin pledged to work with the U.S. on North Korea.
