Trump says US intelligence officials think alleged Russian bounties never happened

Washington, July 2: US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that many intelligence officials think that the alleged Russian bounties for US troops in Afghanistan never took place.

“From what I hear, and I hear pretty good, the intelligence people, many of them, didn’t believe it happened at all,” Trump said in an interview with Fox Business. “I think it’s a hoax by the newspapers and the Democrats… I agree with the intelligence people. I think frankly that many of the intelligence people didn’t think that it was something that even happened.”
