President Trump was quick to respond on Sunday to the news that special council Robert Mueller found no collusion between his campaign and Russia, describing it as a “complete and total exoneration.”
“It was just announced there was no collusion with Russia, the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard. There was no collusion with Russia. There was no obstruction and none whatsoever. And it was a complete and total exoneration,” Trump said before boarding Air Force One to return to Washington.
“It’s a shame that our country had to go through this. To be honest, it’s a shame that your president has had to go through this,” he added.
Trump’s statement, which lasted roughly one minute, came after he tweeted: “No Collusion, No Obstruction, Complete and Total EXONERATION. KEEP AMERICA GREAT!”
