Trump Calls Russia Scandal A Hoax While Touting Stock Market Numbers

Source: Talking Points Memo

President Trump chimed in on Twitter to downplay the Russia scandal that has ramped up scrutiny on the White House in the last few days, while touting stock market gains and jobs numbers.

When revelations began to trickle out that Trumpís son, Donald Trump Jr. ó along with his top advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner, and then campaign chair Paul Manafort Ė met with Kremlin-tied figures during the campaign, Trump at first was slow to weigh in on the accusations.


He finally defended Don Jr. with a statement read by a spokesperson Tuesday. The President later tweeted in support of his sonís appearance on Fox News and said in an interview with Reuters Wednesday that ďmany people would have held that meeting.Ē

Since the June 2016 meeting was first reported a week ago, the younger Trumpís sonís initial claims that he didnít knew who was meeting with were undermined by emails about the meeting posted by Donald Trump Jr. as the New York Times was about to report them. The emails showed that Trump Jr. believed he would be receiving damaging information about Hillary Clinton from the figures he was meeting with.

1. And what positive effect does this arrogant asshole have on the stock market?

Economically, isn't he still operating under the last year of Obama's budget and hasn't done a fucking thing?

And doesn't the same go for OBAMA's job gains and such?

The lying asshole will take credit for anything he didn't do.
