"You have to, if you're Russian Federation, ask yourself, is this a country. a regime that you want to align yourself with?"

At a Newseum event this morning about the role of the press in the first 100 days of the Trump presidency, Spicer described his comments as a "mistake" and told MSNBC's Greta Van Susteren that he let President Trump down.
