Trumps says world laughing at 'stupidity' of Russian Federation collusion probe

President Donald Trump said Wednesday it "seems unlikely" that he'll have to meet with Special Counsel Robert Mueller regarding the ongoing investigation into allegations that Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, repeatedly adding that there was "no collusion".

Trump made the comment at a news conference on Wednesday.

Reports surfaced this week that the president's lawyers have corresponded with FBI investigators about a potential interview between Trump and Mueller.

Mueller has been methodically collecting tens of thousands of documents from the White House and Trump campaign and has interviewed some of the president's closest aides as part of his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.

Mr Trump said "we'll see what happens" when asked if he would provide an interview to Mr Mueller's team.

Manafort's business associate, Rick Gates, was also indicted as apart of the probe, while former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos pled guilty in the probe. He goes with the alternative "nobody's found any collusion" once. "Republicans should finally take control!" the commander-in-chief wrote.

"We make the greatest military equipment in the world", the president said.

The United States intelligence community believes that the Russian government was engaged in electoral interference during the 2016 US presidential election.

Asked whether he would provide that denial under oath to Mueller, Trump told reporters: "100 percent". Asked in recent press conference whether he would do an interview with Mr Mueller, the President quickly switched topics. Democrats are running for office and trying to say things.

The original Federal Bureau of Investigation counter intelligence probe was launched in part because a Trump campaign adviser was said to have told an Australian diplomat that Russian Federation had emails that could embarrass Democrats, and in July 2016, private Democratic messages thought to have been hacked by Russian Federation began appearing online.

"It's a novel strategy for the subject of an obstruction of justice investigation to publicly call for more obstruction of justice, but who am I to judge?" said Matthew Miller, a Justice Department spokesman during former president Barack Obama's administration.

Any deal on immigration "has to include the wall" Trump said Wednesday, "because without the wall, it all doesn't work". Norway is a major supporter of the worldwide pact, but Trump said the proposed restrictions on energy use hurt American businesses.
