Trump says he did not discuss election interference with Putin


-Mr. President, Robert Mueller said last week that Russia is interfering in U.S. elections right now. Did you raise that with Vladimir Putin yesterday? -You don’t really believe this. Do you believe this? -He said it last week. Did you raise that with President Putin yesterday? -We didn’t talk about that. I spoke with President Putin of Russia yesterday. They’re having massive fires in the — in their forests. They have tremendous — I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s very big. I just offered our assistance because we’re very good at putting out forest fires, frankly. And if they should need it, I offered our assistance. We had a good talk. A short talk but a good talk. And I think he appreciated it. So we would be able to help them. These are massive fires like I haven’t seen. That was the primary importance of the conversation. And I think they very much appreciated it. -On the feds, sir. -Mueller said, right now, he believes Russia is interfering in the election. -Well, I watch Mueller. I’m not sure Mueller knows what’s going on, if you want to know the truth. But all I do know is he said no collusion with us — no collusion — and, ultimately, no obstruction, because it led to no obstruction by a very smart group of people, including our Attorney General. So, no collusion, no obstruction. As far as Mueller’s performance, you would have to say it was maybe not so good. Not so good. No questions.

    Imagine if Trump had discussed election interference with Putin then the fake news would be accusing him of trying to collude again and cover-up the collusion that never existed, there is no way that the fake news media was going to somehow make this a positive story no matter what Trump did

    Why would Donald "I love Wikileaks" Trump want to protect America's elections? He wouldn't be President without the help he asked for and received from Putin and the Russian Military/GRU. Same reason Moscow Mitch won't allow it to be made a crime for a campaign to accept help from a foreign nation's government, military, and intelligence services.

    Among a dozen serious topics Trump covered in a 20 minute press scrum, WaPo cherry picks the Russian topic. smh.
    For those interested in something other than the irritating Russia topic, here's some of the other issues Trump talked about:
    1. The Dem debates
    2. North Korea's missile tests
    3. Comey
    4. Supporter chants
    5. Kashmir
    6. Bin Laden's son
    7. Military support.
    8. Baltimore
    9. Hong Kong protests
    And others.
    I encourage people to watch the full scrum. Trump continues to do an excellent job for the country and his openness with press is unprecedented.

    Everybody keeps talking about Russian interference in our elections… but nobody ever say what they did or how they did it.. it’s just a general blanket statement Russia interfered.. what did they take out an add in Facebook ? Put out a video on you tube ? Or did they break into our voting machines and change the votes.. some kind of covert mis-information ? What could the Russians do to change my mind on how I vote.. I listen to the candidate I don’t depend on any media social or otherwise to make my choices if you choose a candidate because you listen to any media or celebrity. Then your lazy and don’t care what happens to America follow the leader is not a well informed way to make a choice no matter who that leader is..
