Trump: Special counsel a 'witch hunt'

Well I respect the move put the entire thing has been a witch hunt and that there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign.

But I can always speak for myself and the Russians zero.

I think it divides the country.

I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things.

So I can tell you that we want to bring this.

Great country of ours together Jen and I will also say very strongly we've had tremendous success you look at our job numbers.

You look at what's going on at the border as we discussed before you look at what will be happening you're gonna see some incredible numbers with respect to the success of general.

Mattis and others with.

The crisis situation and the numbers are staggering how successful they've been in the military has been.

Tomorrow as you know I'm going to Saudi Arabia and Israel.

Going to Rome.

We have the G-7.

Got a lot of great things going on so I hate to see anything that divides.

I'm fine with whatever people want to do but we have to get back to running this country.

Really really well we've made tremendous progress in the last hundred some odd days tremendous drugs and you see job numbers you see.

All of the production that starting a plan starting to open again happened and open in years.

I'm very proud of it that's what I wanna be focused on because believe me there's no collusion.

Russia is fine.

But whether it's Russia or anybody else might total priority believe me is United States of America so thank you very much.
