Fox News Monday morning did its usual propaganda pitch for President Trump, defending the lying leader's responses during his rare "60 Minutes" interview which aired Sunday night.

Asked by CBS whether trump that Putin has to do with the murder, and poisoning, the US President replied: "Yes, it probably is".

"They meddled. But I think China meddled, too, ' Trump said when Stahl asked if he believed Russian Federation had run interference in the last presidential election".

Russian President Vladimir Putin will attend a November 11 ceremony in Paris marking 100 years since the end of World War I, his advisor Yuri Ushakov said Tuesday. "It was a very tough meeting and it was a very good meeting", Trump said in an interview with the CBS TV network.

Here are 10 other key moments from the interview.

Tiankai said a one-on-one meeting between Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina next month would "probably" take place. "But I think China meddled too". I was getting to know countries. "And I think, frankly, China is a bigger problem", he said. And, like Melania Trump's utterly-on-message, relentlessly forward-moving TV interview, the President's interview had effectively the same impact as a rally; it allowed him to bulldoze his chief enemy, the media, while airing his own points at ceaseless length.

"You think I'd call Russian Federation and ask them to help me to help with the elections?"

When pressed about Mattis, Trump denied that the legendary general had needed to educate the president about NATO's role when Trump was seeking greater contributions from member nations. We get along very well. I mean, I'm not a baby. "Everybody. People leave. That's Washington".

Earlier this week, Trump a Washington meeting between the two leaders until next year, citing political fallout over Special Counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing and still fruitless "Russiagate" investigation. "It's clear that there couldn't have been a different answer".

Mr Trump acknowledged that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential campaign, but he sought to blame other countries as well.

"It's not China's warships going to the coast of California or off the coast of Mexico", he continued.

In the October 14 segment that included some testy exchanges, network reporter Lesley Stahl sat down with Trump for her third such interview with him.

Chinese officials have complained before about receiving mixed signals from Trump's economic team.

Mattis has denied making disparaging comments about Trump, and the president said last month that the retired general was "doing a fantastic job". He added, "I don't want that".
