Social Media Slams Trump After Helsinki Conference

TAMPA- President Donald Trump faced criticism on social media following his news conference Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin due to a statement he made about Putin’s possible involvement with the 2016 presidential election.

During the news conference in Helsinki, Trump answered a question that seemed to take Putin’s side and diss America when he was asked whether or not Russia had anything to do with meddling in the 2016 election.

According to multiple sources, Trump stated that he didn’t see any reason why Russia would have hacked the election. One particular statement sent the internet into a frenzy.

I don’t see any reason why it would be.

After the conference, people immediately took to social media and expressed their thoughts.

Even celebrities chimed in.

But Trump didn’t seem too bothered by any of the negativity. He referred to his fellow tweeters as haters.

Despite his carefree tweets, the negativity from the internet must have eventually gotten to Trump because sources reported 24 hours later that he claimed to have misspoken during the news conference and what he really meant to say was wouldn’t instead of would.
