President Donald Trump issued a correction to his statements from his joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, claiming that he meant to say he doesn’t see why interference in elections “wouldn’t” come from Russia instead of “would” come from Russia at a separate Tuesday press conference.

“In a key sentence in my remarks, I said the world ‘would’ instead of ‘wouldn’t’,” Trump said Tuesday. “The sentence should have been, I don’t see any reason why I wouldn’t, or why it wouldn’t be Russia.”

Democratic members of Congress expressed outrage on social media. (RELATED: Trump Says He Misspoke On Russian Meddling, Accepts Intelligence Assessment)

“This man is a bold-faced, pathological liar reading a bogus statement about his comments yesterday, and I’m confident that he thinks the American people will believe him. We don’t, and we know that the truth was apparent on stage yesterday,” New Jersey Democratic Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman tweeted.

“When a President puts democracy at risk and endangers the Republic, there is but one solution prior to an election, IMPEACHMENT,” Texas Democratic Rep. Al Green tweeted.

“Clean up, aisle Trump,” wrote California Democratic Rep. Judy Chu.

And that was only the beginning.

Trump pledged at Tuesday’s press conference that he will continue to block attempts at foreign meddling in elections or any other U.S. government activities.
