President Donald Trump attempted to try and rectify the torrent of criticism directed his way on Tuesday by offering an explanation for one moment of his remarks he made during a press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin earlier this week.

The president, who refused to denounce Russia for its alleged interference during the 2016 election, said he misspoke at the conference.

“In a key sentence in my remarks, I said the word ‘would’ instead of ‘wouldn’t,'” he said. “The sentence should have been ‘I don’t see any reason why I wouldn’t,’ or ‘why it wouldn’t be Russia.’ I said the word ‘would’ instead of ‘wouldn’t.'”

Clearly, the internet isn’t buying it.

Since Trump tried to clarify his remarks, thousands of people on Twitter have mocked him by offering their own versions of the “would” versus “wouldn’t” excuse.

Clearly nobody is convinced Trump’s excuse was the truth.
