Trump: I've Been the Toughest President on Russia

Is Russia still targeting U.S. elections?  President Trump says "no."

Trump said that during a White House Cabinet meeting Wednesday. 

His one-word response to a reporter's question contradicts his own director of national intelligence. 

In a statement this week, Dan Coats noted Russia's "ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy."

Meantime, Trump said his administration is doing very well on Russia. He again argued that there has never been a president as tough on Russia as he is.

Widespread critics -- including some Republicans -- have accused Trump of being soft on Russian President Vladimir Putin during their summit in Helsinki this week.
