Trump denies accusations that he is thwarting Russian probe: ‘Fighting back’ is not obstruction

“When you mess with the best, you go down like the rest.” That’s the message President Trump has for anyone who attacks him with lies.

Trump defended his criticism of the Russia investigation, saying it’s not “obstruction” just because he fights back against defamatory lies and false accusations.

Trump mocked the media, saying: “You fight back [and the press whines] ‘oh, it’s obstruction.”

Trump’s statements on the matter have been consistent. “There has been no collusion whatsoever,” the president told reporters at an impromptu press conference (audio below). “There’s no obstruction whatsoever.”

President Trump surprised reporters by saying he’s open to speaking to Robert Mueller under oath, if his lawyers give him the go-ahead. Why? Because there no was no collusion or obstruction, and he has nothing to hide.

“I’m looking forward to it,” Trump said about being questioned by Mueller. “I would do it under oath.”

President Trump and the 63 million Americans who voted for him are flabbergasted that Democrats continue to push the “Russia collusion” hoax simply because they can’t admit that Trump was a superior candidate to Hillary Clinton.

“The fact is, you (media) people won’t say this, but I’ll say it: I was a much better candidate than Hillary,” Trump said. “You always say she was a bad candidate, but you never say I was a good candidate. I was one of the greatest candidates. Nobody else would have beaten the Clinton Machine, as crooked as it was. Someday you’re going to say that.”
