President Donald Trump reacted to the release of the Mueller report Thursday, exclaiming that he is having a good day because there was “no collusion” and “no obstruction.”
The redacted report from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia was released Thursday afternoon, shortly before the president was set to host veterans with the Wounded Warriors Project at the White House.
After being introduced at the event, the president briefly referenced Attorney General Bill Barr’s press conference and the release of the Mueller report. (RELATED: Attorney General Barr Releases Redacted Mueller Report)
“They’re having a good day, I’m having a good day too. It’s called no collusion, no obstruction,” Trump said with a smile. “There never was, by the way, and there never will be.”
Barr indicated during his press conference Thursday morning that the key underpinning of the Mueller report is that the investigation did not establish collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
“And we do have to get to the bottom of these things, I will say, and this should never happen,” Trump continued. “I say this in front of my friends, wounded warriors.”
“This should never happen to another president again — this hoax. This should never happen to another president again,” he concluded.
