Trump-Putin summit: US president reverses remark on Russia meddling

US President Donald Trump has said he accepts Russia interfered in the 2016 election.

Mr Trump has said he accepts US intelligence agencies' conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 election, despite declining to do so just a day ago.
He said he had misspoken on Monday and had meant to say he saw no reason why it was not Russia that meddled. Roger Hearing is joined by guests Jasper Kim, Author of Persuasion: The Hidden Forces That Influence Negotiations in Seoul and Alexis Goldstein, activist and financial reform advocate in Washington to discuss. Also in the programme, our reporter at the Farnborough Air Show considers the prospects for private luxury travel. We have a report from Hong Kong on the expensive marketplace for car parking spaces there. Plus is having a controversial boss a help or a hindrance to a company? We speak to David Wheeler, journalism professor at The University of Tampa about Tesla, Uber and Papa John's leaders.
