Trump told reporters Tuesday that he misspoke during his widely criticized press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The president had originally said Monday that he didn’t “see any reason why it would be” Russia who interfered in the 2016 election
Trump later said he meant to say “I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia” interfering in the election.
“It should have been obvious," he added. “So you can put that in and I think that probably clarifies things.”
