A day before his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, U.S. President Donald Trump criticized the Kremlin and said that he thinks that Russia did actually intervene in the 2016 presidential election but then clarified that he also believes it could have been people from other countries. “No one really knows for sure,” he said.

During a joint press conference with Polish President Andrzej Duda in Warsaw, Trump said: “I think it very well could be Russia but I think it could very well have been other countries.” Trump then attacked the media, including CNN and NBC, saying: “I think a lot of people interfere.”

When he was asked about the fact that the U.S. intelligence community has already stated that it was Russia that meddled in the election, Trump compared the assessment to the disproved claim about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction, which motivated the U.S. to invade the Arab country in 2003.

“I remember when I was sitting back listening about Iraq, weapons of mass destruction, how everybody was 100% certain that Iraq has weapons of mass destruction,” Trump continued. “Guess what? That led to one big mess. They were wrong and it led to a mess.”

“I think it was Russia but I think it was probably other people and or countries. I see nothing wrong with that statement,” Trump added. “No one really knows. No one really knows for sure.”
