” President Donald Trump sought to walk back his remarks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday by correcting a single word uttered during the 46-minute joint appearance in Helsinki.When Trump said he couldn’t see any reason why Russia ‘would’ have been involved in the U.S. presidential election what he meant to say was ‘wouldn’t.'” [usatoday.com]
In the wake of a firestorm Trump makes a redaction:
The little word ‘would’ should have been a contraction.
The Right now can sell
That all’s good and well
And the same platitudes take the place of strong action.
