President Trump says We have a Divided Country because of the Russia “Witch Hunt”

On Thursday President Trump held a joint press conference with the President of Colombia when ABC’s Jonathan Karl snidely asked Trump if the naming of a special counsel was part of the “witch hunt” against him. Trump handled the question well and simply played of Karl’s veiled condemnation by agreeing that the entire process was indeed a witch hunt.

The President argued that the entire debacle had divided the country and that if appointing a special counsel would put the issue to bed… it would be all the better.

Jonathan Karl: Mr. President, I’d like to get your reaction to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s decision to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Russia — Russian interference in the campaign. Was this the right move? Or is this part of a witch hunt?

Donald Trump: Well, I respect the move, but the entire thing has been a witch hunt. And there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign. But I can always speak for myself and the Russians — zero. I think it divides the country. I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things…

I’m fine with whatever people want to do, but we have to get back to running this country really, really well. We made tremendous progress in the last 100 and some odd days. Tremendous progress. And you see job numbers, you see all of the production that’s starting, plants starting to open again, haven’t been open in years. I’m very proud of it. That’s what I want to be focused on because believe me, there’s no collusion. Russia is fine, but whether it’s Russia or anybody else, my total priority, believe me, is the United States of America. Thank you very much.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
