The zigzagging laid bare the White House's search for a path out of trouble that has dogged the administration's discussions of Russian Federation from the start, but spiraled after Trump's trip to Helsinki.
"The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media", Mr. Trump tweeted Thursday morning. A transcript was sent to Coats afterwards to make sure he didn't miss the President's comments.
The US President had also mentioned that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign was "a disaster for our country", while also saying that it had negatively impacted US-Russia relations.
Mixed messages from Trump have increased worries in Congress that the White House is not taking seriously the threat that senior officials say Russian Federation now poses to the upcoming 2018 midterm elections.
This week saw Trump's first summit with Putin since the election.
No Russian leader has visited the White House in almost a decade.
The invitation was announced hours after the president tweeted that he looked forward to "our second meeting" as he defended his widely-criticised Helsinki summit on Monday in which the two leaders conferred on a range of issues, including terrorism, Israeli security, nuclear proliferation and North Korea.

"I am not disappointed", said Guardiola . "Joe is our player, we will try and find solution", Guardiola said. We can not forget what we've done but we start again.
No Russian leader has visited the White House in almost a decade and it would be a diplomatic coup for Mr Putin, who has been isolated by the West for activities in Ukraine, Syria and the nerve agent attack in Salisbury.
"Say that again?" Coats asked the interviewer.
Considering the unmistakable Liberal bent of the United States mainstream media complex, which churns out anti-Trump, anti-Russia stories with more predictable homogeneity than a Pringles potato chip factory, the chances of the Putin-Trump summit winning any positive reviews back home was about slim to none.
The news was confirmed through White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders' social media account. That sentence should be: Who among us has not not done that? She said at the Aspen Forum that Russian Federation is attempting to "cause chaos on both sides". Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., to slap new sanctions on Russian Federation or any other country caught posting ads, running fake news or otherwise interfering with election infrastructure.
It restated the USA intelligence community's assessment that Moscow did extensively interfere, and continues to interfere.
When the committee returned, lawmakers voted along party lines, 11-6, to table the motion.
"Those loosened rules of engagement have resulted in direct military clashes with Russian militants and mercenaries on the ground, actually resulting in one incident in hundreds of casualties on the Russian side", Vajdich said.
And letting Russians come to the U.S.to observe questioning, he said wryly, is "probably even lower on our list".
