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.
“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.

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