"I like watching it. They want a piece of the West Wing", Trump said. And he hopes the latest offer will be a breakthrough. "Everyone wants to work in the White House". "They all want a piece of that Oval Office".

The conversation then shifted to USA trade and Trump's plan for global tariffs on steel and aluminum.

"No, we'll counteract what they do, and we are having strong backup systems", Trump replied.

Löfven was the first European leader to visit the White House since Trump announced he would apply stiff new tariffs on steel and aluminum last week. According to the president, this is all untrue. Its home-country automaker Volvo sold almost 83,000 models in the U.S.in fiscal 2016, making it the company's second biggest market behind China.

"Then we can start talking", Trump said.

"We will straighten it out". "We're doing a very very deep study and we're coming out with I think some very strong suggestions on the '18 election". It will be a loving, loving way. They did well. Let's see if we can carry it over.


As has become his practice, Trump called on reporters from right-leaning outlets - Fox News and the Daily Caller - for his two questions.

European sentiment was also supported after Germany reformed its coalition government to end more than five months in political limbo and as initial unease caused by a hefty election vote for anti-establishment parties in Italy began to ebb. Certainly there was meddling.

Trump again said he believes Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 race, but he again said other countries or individuals also could have tried to interfere.

Trump acknowledged that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election, but insisted that it did not influence the outcome and qualified his answer to suggest that there may have been other actors.

"If we don't change the dynamic here, this is going to continue", Rogers added.

"You have to be very vigilant".


Though Trump has at times doubted that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election, he told reporters Tuesday that "certainly there was meddling" and that the US government must be vigilant to prevent foreign intrusions in future elections.

"I really believe they are honest".

The statement from the top Republican in the House comes as the Trump administration is arguing that the tariffs are needed to preserve American steel and aluminum and warning that North American neighbors Canada and Mexico will not get any relief unless they agree to a fair trade deal.

But, he added, "I think they are honest also because [of] the sanctions". The Trump administration also pushed through some of the harshest sanctions any country has ever faced.

Lofven notes that his country has maintained diplomatic relations with North Korea for decades, while the USA has no formal ties to the communist government in Pyongyang.

"We must stop Iran, we will stop Iran", Netanyahu said.
