Trump appears to admit Russia helped elect him, but then backtracks


“I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected,” Trump tweeted this morning, as he launched a fresh round of attacks on the Russia investigation. But he contradicted that statement a short time later, while talking with reporters on the White House lawn. “No, Russia did not help me get elected,” Trump said. “You know who got me elected? I got me elected.”
