On Sunday morning the President tweeted about reports from the Washington Post and other sources, which cite anonymous sources who claim the President is “worried” about Donald Jr.’s legal prospects with regard to the infamous Trump Tower meeting. The meeting, which Trump and his team have assured America for a long time, that Trump was not aware of in advance and was merely about adoption.
But in attack the “Fake News” reports, Trump seems to indicate that the meeting was not about adoption after all, and was instead about getting dirt on Hillary. Which everyone already knew but he hasn’t previously admitted.
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!— Donald J.

It’s already all over the Sunday morning shows and reporters are pouncing on it on Twitter. For example…

Lucky for him he’s spent the week making everyone hate the media even more. Good timing!
