Trump Claims Fake News Media Is At It Again With Reports About Trump Jr Meetings


By Chris White

President Donald Trump dinged “Fake News” Sunday morning for pushing what he called fabricated reports that he is concerned about his son’s decision to meet in 2016 with a Russian lawyer.

“Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower,” Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to reports Saturday suggesting he is concerned Donald Trump Jr. is in legal trouble with respect to Special Council Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling.

Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics – and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!

“This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics – and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!” Trump said, noting the details about a meeting his son had during the presidential campaign with Russian attorney, Natalia Veselnitskaya, who promised to provide “dirt” on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Trump Jr. later called the meeting a waste of time and said Veselnitskaya and the other Russian officials who tagged along at the meeting only discussed Russian adoption policies. CNN and The Washington Post ran a series of reports in Julynoting that former Trump attorney Michael Cohen is willing to testify that the president approved the Trump Tower meeting.
