Swedish prime minister criticizes Trump's tariff proposal right in front of him

President Trump and Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven hold a joint press conference at the White House on Tuesday

President Trump, in a joint news conference with the Swedish prime minister, acknowledged Russian "meddling" in the 2016 presidential election and said his administration is working to counteract any interference in elections in 2018 - even as he downplayed the effect of Russia's 2016 influence campaign.

Russian Federation has been found by multiple investigations and agencies to have sought to influence the last presidential election by backing candidates, including Trump, who opposed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

He added that while he understands and and respects Trump's view that he has to look after his own country, "for me leading a small country, depending on open trade, the best way for us is to do that with others".

President Donald Trump speaks during a news conference with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven in the East Room of the White House, Tuesday, March 6, 2018, in Washington.

He defended his recent call for tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, and when talking about White House staffing, said he fosters disagreement among his top aides. We're studying it very closely.

"Every time he sees me, he says, 'I didn't do that, ' and I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it", Trump told reporters while addressing his conversations with Putin about Russia's role in the 2016 election.

"They make it nearly impossible for us to do business with them and yet they send their cars and everything else back to the United States", he said.

"I think they're honest also because the sanctions and what we're doing with respect to North Korea, including the great help that we've been given from China". "I am convinced that increased tariffs will hurt us all in the long run", Lofven said. However, the State Department's fact sheet goes on to point out that the country is also "one of the largest investors on a per capita basis". But White House staffers have privately complained about difficulties attracting qualified candidates to the administration. "I'm protecting our companies and I'm not going to let that happen", Trump said.
