“It sounds to me like they believe it was Russia and I would certainly take that finding as that,” Trump said at the White House before departing for California
“Well, it sounds to me — I’m speaking to Theresa May today — it sounds to me like it would be Russia based on all of the evidence they have. I don’t know if they’ve come to a conclusion but she’s calling me today.”
“Theresa May is going to be speaking to me today, he continued. “It sounds to me like they believe it was Russia, and I would certainly take that finding as that.”
“As soon as we get the facts straight, and we’re going to be speaking with the British today, we’re speaking with Theresa May today,” POTUS added. “As soon as we get the facts straight, if we agree with them, we will condemn Russia or whoever it may be, but I have not spoken to her. I’ll speak to her some time today.”
