The "Outnumbered" panel had some strong takes on Tuesday about President Trump's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump has received backlash from both sides of the aisle after remarks he made in his post-summit news conference.

President Trump stated on Monday that although he has "great confidence" in his intelligence team, Putin "was extremely strong and powerful" in his denial of Russians meddling in the 2016 election.

"I think he made a mistake," political strategist Josh Holmes said. "He continues to conflate the issue of Russian collusion with Russian meddling in our election."

Trump defended his remarks in a tweet, saying that in order to "build a brighter future," America cannot focus on the past.

Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe added that she believes Trump wasn't definitive enough with his words.

"He leaves all this room for ambiguity. He's all over the place so people can misconstrue it however they want or even take it for what it looks like," she said.

Fox Business Network's Dagen McDowell said that she hoped Trump would have shown Putin "some tall-guy intimidation" on the world stage.

"He is the CEO of the United States of America," she said. "But it's not a private company. He doesn't own it. ... He's the CEO for all us, not himself."

Trish Regan had harsh words for the president as well, stating the he didn't defend the American people.

"It was an easy question. He should have known it was coming," she said. "I'm disappointed. He was not the patriot he should have been yesterday."
