Donald Trump has offered an "extraordinary show of trust", after siding with Russian president Vladimir Putin's assertion that Moscow did not interfere in the 2016 USA presidential election.

"It could be other people also". There are a lot of people out there.
"I have President Putin; he just said it's not Russia", Trump said, at the joint press conference with Putin.

The military also said it is only involved in elections at the request of Pakistan's Election Commission. Since then, a host of his allies have been either disqualified by the courts or face corruption cases.
"And it's really hard to believe that if it was a simple mistake, one that caused this global uproar, why did the White House leave it for 24 hours before clarifying it when it could have been done in the immediate aftermath of the press conference?" "If that wasn't the work of God and [special counsel] Robert Mueller, I don't know what is", Kimmel said.
