US President Donald Trump does not believe in Russian interference, reported Axious Thursday.
Before departing to his rally on Thursday, President Trump said that in his recent conversation with the Russian President Vladimir Putin over the phone they did not discuss sanctions or Russian interference in the US presidential election.
Last week former Special Counsel Robert Mueller testified before the House Intelligence and Judiciary Committees. Mueller stated that Russia is a threat to the US as it interfered and continues to interfere with the US elections. “As we sit here,” Mueller said, “Russia is interfering.”
When asked about Mueller’s claim, President Trump responded: “oh, you don’t really believe this.”
“Do you believe this? Ok, fine. We didn’t talk about it. I spoke with President Putin of Russia yesterday. They are having massive fires in their forest. I’ve never seen anything like it. I just offered our assistance because we are very good at putting out forest fires frankly. 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.”
Trump also claimed he was not sure “if Mueller knows what’s going on,” adding once again that there was “No collusion, No obstruction.”
