President Donald Trump didn't show "good negotiating skills" during his first sit-down with Russia's Vladimir Putin, and "ceded" ground on the issue of its U.S. election meddling, former CIA Director John Brennan says.
In an interview aired Sunday on NBC's "Meet The Press," Brennan bristled at the questioning of the data from U.S. intelligence agencies on the issue.
“I don’t think he demonstrates good negotiating skills when it comes to Mr. Putin,” he said. "Two days ago in Warsaw, he gave Mr. Putin the opportunity to point to the failures of U.S. Intelligence. To me, I think he ceded that ground.
"And also right before he met with Mr. Putin and talked with him at some length, which I'm glad he did, he said it's an honor to meet President Putin. An honor to meet the individual who carried out the assault against our election? To me it was a dishonorable thing to say."
