From the Daily Caller News Foundation:

President Donald Trump doubled down on earlier statements, stressing on Twitter Saturday that having a positive relationship with Russia will advance U.S. interests.

Trump referred to those individuals holding the U.S. back “haters and fools.”

“If we had a relationship with Russia, that would be a good thing,” Trump told reporters in Vietnam Saturday.

The president slammed the Democrats for creating an “artificial barrier ” between the U.S. and Russia, preventing the two major powers from working together on issues of mutual interest.

Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin met at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Vietnam, and when the matter of election meddling came up, Putin vehemently denied any wrongdoing.

“He said he didn’t meddle. He said he didn’t meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times,” Trump said, adding “Every time he sees me, he says, ‘I didn’t do that.’ And I believe, I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it. But he says, ‘I didn’t do that.’”

It remains unclear whether Trump legitimately believes Putin over the U.S. intelligence community, which has determined that Russia meddled in the election but did not impact the outcome, or whether he is trying to establish working relationships with major actors like China and Russia to resolve issues like North Korea.

His “haters and fools” tweet were preceded by two tweets claiming that progress is being made on key international problems with Russia and China’s help.

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
