Another day, another Trump tweet. Today Trump came out to protect his son, after rumors began swirling that the president is worried his son may be in legal danger.
Luckily, Trump was right there with his tweets to set the record straight. “This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics – and it went nowhere.” He’s referring to the recent revelation that Donald Trump Jr. had met with a team of Russians while Trump was a candidate.
Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics – and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!

It’s been a year since The New York Times first reported the story, and since then, the White House, Donald Trump, and his son have all put out confusing and contradictory statements.
