President Trump today said Robert Mueller’s conclusion that there were insufficient grounds to show collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians was an “exoneration.”
Trump spoke as he departed Palm Beach for Washington.
From a White House travel pool report:
“After a long look, after a long investigation, after so many people have been so badly hurt, after not looking at the other side where a lot of bad things happened … it was just announced there was no collusion with Russia,” Trump said, calling the collusion allegations, “the most ridiculous thing ever.”
“It was complete and total exoneration”
“It’s a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest it’s a shame that your president had to go through this.”
“This was an illegal takedown that failed and hopefully somebody is going to be looking at their other side”
