ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) One day before his first face-to-face meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday (July 6) he thought Moscow had intervened in the 2016 U.S. election but suggested other countries had as well. Trump, speaking to reporters in Poland, cast doubt on the assertion that 17 intelligence agencies had found that Russia had intervened in the election, saying it had only been three or four. Asked about a mock video he tweeted that depicted him tackling and punching a man with the logo of CNN super-imposed on his head, said on Thursday the news network had taken the issue "too seriously". He also said Washington was thinking about "severe things" in response to North Korea's test-launch this week of an intercontinental ballistic missile with the potential to reach Alaska.
