Trump said Tuesday he misspoke a day earlier when he seemed to side with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the conclusion by the US intelligence committees that Russia had meddled in the 2016 US presidential election.

"I've said this many times," Trump said, reading from the written statement. "I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place. Could be other people also. A lot of people out there."

Trump said at the joint press conference with Putin that he didn't "see any reason" why Russia would be responsible for the hacking of the election.

On Tuesday, Trump said he misspoke and instead meant to say he didn't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia.

Speaking from a meeting with Republican lawmakers at the White House, Trump said he had "full faith" in US intelligence agencies, and wanted to clarify his statements from the day before.
