President Donald Trump spent several days hosting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Mar-a-Lago this week. During a joint press conference with the two world leaders on Thursday, a reporter brazenly asked the U.S. president if he is “too scared” to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Trump’s reply immediately silenced the crowded room and showed the insolent reporter who’s boss.
By all accounts, President Donald Trump’s time with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Mar-a-Lago this week was a resounding success. The pair has kindled a tight relationship ever since the 45th president took office, and that relationship will be instrumental as North and South Korea meet for historic peace talks:
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe began two days of meetings with President Trump at the president’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida Tuesday. Just looking over the amount of issues these two world leaders will need to discuss, their “special relationship” will be tested in a historic manner.
At the start of their meeting, President Trump announced, with Abe at his side, that North and South Korean leaders – who are holding their own summit April 27 – will seek to finally reach an agreement to formally end the Korean War, which was halted with an armistice in 1953. [Source: Fox News]
Despite all that went down between President Donald Trump and his Japanese counterpart this week, however, all reporters wanted to talk about during a joint press conference with the two world leaders on Thursday was the bogus Russia probe. Bloomberg News reporter Jennifer Jacobs even questioned whether Trump was frightened to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, but Trump had the perfect response.
“Jennifer, I can say this — that there was no collusion, and that’s been so found, as you know, by the House Intelligence Committee,” replied President Trump. “There’s no collusion. There was no collusion with Russia, other than by the Democrats… This was a — really a hoax created largely by the Democrats as a way of softening the blow of a loss,” he added.
“As far as the investigation, nobody has ever been more transparent than I have instructed our lawyers — ‘Be totally transparent.’ I believe we’ve given them 1.4 million pages of documents if you can believe this. And haven’t used — that I know of, or for the most part — presidential powers or privilege,” Trump continued. “So we are hopefully coming to the end. It is a bad thing for our country — very, very bad thing for our country. But there has been no collusion. They won’t find any collusion. It doesn’t exist,” he reiterated.
“You look at the kind of money that was paid. Probably some went to Russia. You look at Podesta having a company in Russia where nothing happened and people don’t talk about it,” said Trump. “You look at the fact that their server — the DNC server — was never gotten by the FBI. Why didn’t the FBI take it? The FBI takes what they want. They go in; they wouldn’t get the server. This is a hoax.”
As President Donald Trump noted, if there was any collusion with Russia whatsoever, it was on the part of the Democrats. If Hillary Clinton had been elected, though, there would be no investigation like the one we have seen into Mr. Trump and his campaign.
In fact, if Hillary had been elected, the media and the left would have never said a word about Russia or Vladimir Putin. The president said it best — this is no more than a “hoax” orchestrated by the Democratic Party to soften the blow of their embarrassing election loss. And, now, years later, they are still wasting time, money, and resources on it.
