"Disgraceful!" the President, who is in Germany for the G20 conference, tweeted at about 10:40 local time Friday morning.

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" ripped President Trump for a Friday morning tweet about former Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta with Mika Brzezinski asking, "What's going on in his head?"

In his tweets Friday, Podesta also expressed exasperation over being the president's focus just hours before Trump was scheduled to hold a high-stakes meeting with the Russian leader.

Mr Trump's tweet appeared to conflate the hacking of Mr Podesta's personal account with another cyber-attack. "You're representing the United States at the G20", Podesta concluded.

"Maybe you might try to find a way to mention that to President Putin", Podesta tweeted.

The emails stolen from Podesta revealed the inner-machinations of the Clinton campaign and were talked about regularly during the election cycle. It was noted that advisers "nodded politely or ignored him" when he chose to address the subject, especially since the hacking of Podesta's emails are central to the whole Trump/Russia collusion investigation.

The hacked DNC emails revealed that party officials favoured Mrs Clinton in the tussle for the presidential nomination, a revelation that soured supporters of her liberal challenger, Bernie Sanders.

Trump used his most direct rhetoric yet toward Moscow, urging the Kremlin to "cease its destabilizing activities".

Taxi hits pedestrians near Boston airport
The Globe and other local news outlets reported that the police believe the crash was an accident and not the result of terrorism. Video of the scene showed a white taxi with front end damage at rest against a building and near some picnic tables.

There remains an ongoing investigation into Trump's potential ties with Russian Federation, and for his part, the president has regularly cast doubt on the intelligence community's assertion that the Kremlin was involved in the hack.

"A lot of people interfere" in elections across the globe, he said, adding that when it comes to just who interfered in the US election "nobody really knows for sure". "You're representing the U.S. at the G20", he finished.

That Putin point has been rendered moot since Trump was eager to take the Russian leader's word for it that he didn't interfere in the election, despite the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Central Intelligence Agency telling him otherwise.

Federal immigration authorities asked the sheriff's department to detain Lopez-Sanchez until they could pick him up. Congress is working with the Trump Administration to crack down on sanctuary cities and keep Americans safe, U.S.
