US president tweets that scrutiny of Donald Trump Jr’s encounter with a Russian lawyer is ‘sad!’
The US president, Donald Trump, has described the storm over his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer as “the greatest witch-hunt in political history” and “sad!”
In a typically combative tweet, Trump praised Donald Trump Jr and said that “my son Donald did a good job last night” when he appeared on Fox TV. “He was open, transparent and innocent,” Trump added.
My son Donald did a good job last night. He was open, transparent and innocent. This is the greatest Witch Hunt in political history. Sad!
