In an interview with “CBS Evening News” anchor Jeff Glor, President Trump said he believes U.S. intelligence agencies’ assessment Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
The president’s comments came after he was widely criticized for his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, in which Mr. Trump appeared to say he had no reason to believe Russia interfered with the election. The next day, the president said he misspoke.
The first portion of the interview with Mr. Trump aired Wednesday on the “CBS Evening News.” The second half of the interview will air Thursday on “CBS This Morning” at 7 a.m. ET.
