That Trump tweet on the DNC hack has 3 errors

Trump is filling his time at the G20 with international policy and politics and it's unlikely the drama of his 2016 White House campaign is dominating discussions

On Friday morning, President Trump tweeted that everyone at the G20 summit was "talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency".

President Trump is in Hamburg for the G20 meeting on Friday, along with the leaders of 19 other world powers.

"Get a grip man, the Russians committed a crime when they stole my emails to help get you elected President", Mr Podesta wrote.

The president wrote that he has "much to discuss" with Putin.

And... "According to those present, the only world leader at the summit who was actively bringing up Podesta and "the DNC server" was the US president. You're representing the U.S. at the G20".

Read the whole tweet storm below.

"As president, Trump is supposed to be doing his job representing the United States in a respectable fashion to make sure we maintain and enhance our standing around the world".

As recently as Thursday, Trump declined to say definitively that Russian Federation had meddled in last year's USA elections - a conclusion reached by multiple US intelligence agencies.

The emails stolen from Podesta revealed the inner-machinations of the Clinton campaign and were talked about regularly during the election cycle.

U.S. ready to work with Russian Federation on Syria 'no-fly zones'
Jordan and Israel are also part of the deal, the Associated Press reports , quoting an unnamed USA official. The countries previously said they would hold the next round of talks in Astana in the final week of August.

The DNC was separately hacked, exposing the party's strategies and embarrassing exchanges.

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

In a series of tweets, Hillary Clinton's former campaign chairman rebutted a number of Trump's Twitter claims.

Mr Podesta pointed out in one of his replies that he did not run the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which suffered a separate email breach.

The intelligence community has said Moscow was behind the hacks into Democratic organizations.

"Nobody really knows", Trump said.

Trump then turned back to a few months ago writing, "Everyone here is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the DNC and the Central Intelligence Agency. 'I have no idea what he's talking about, ' one messaged The Daily Beast".

The president, despite being on foreign soil, ended his tweet by slapping this moniker on both the DNC and Podesta: "Disgraceful!"
