Washington, D.C. – Congressman Ted. S. Yoho (R-FL) issued the following statement:
“Today’s press conference between President Trump and Vladimir Putin was a missed opportunity to hold Russia accountable for their meddling into our 2016 presidential election. I don’t agree with President Trump’s comments that his regime didn’t interfere. The evidence from our national security agencies is clear; Russia deliberately tried to undermine our republic. This is unacceptable.
“Putin has never been, nor will he be, a friend to the United States. It must be made clear to his regime that we will not tolerate any hostile action against the United States. The preservation of our Republic is paramount and is of the utmost importance to all Americans.”
