After strong criticism on both sides for siding with Russia over our own intelligence, Trump later clarified at a subsequent press conference:

The sentence should have been “I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia,” sort of a double negative. So you can put that in and I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself. I have on numerous occasions noted our intelligence findings that Russians attempted to interfere in our elections.

Trump and Putin met in Helsinki, Finland on July 18, 2018.  Information about what was discussed in this meeting was for the most part not made public. Trump once publicly called on Russia to hack Hillary Clinton during his Presidential campaign.
