The attacks continue on President Donald Trump after a joint press conference capping off his Helsinki summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin that has evoked words such as "traitor" and "treason" - and not just from Democrats.

He pointedly called out the president for refusing to denounce Russian interference in the 2016 election during Monday's press conference at the Helsinki Summit.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, following the news conference, released a statement saying the USA intelligence community "have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".

"I thought President Putin was very, very strong", the President said during the interview that aired Monday night on Fox News. "I mean, you stood there like a little wet noodle, like a little fanboy", Mr Schwarzenegger said in the video. He added that Trump "sold out" his intelligence community, the justice system, and "worst of all, our country" during the press conference. "I mean, I was asking myself when are you going to ask him for an autograph or for a selfie or something like that?"

"The nuclear problem, we have to make sure, we have to be very careful and you know if you look at Russian Federation and the United States that's 90 percent of the nuclear weapons", Trump said.

During the news brief, which came after the leaders met privately for over two hours, Trump seemed to accept Putin's denial of interfering in the 2016 presidential election - despite findings to the contrary by US intelligence agencies.

"President Putin says it's not Russian Federation. I will say this, I don't see any reason why it would be".
