POTUS TRUMP Defends Son in Paris: He’s a “Wonderful Young Man – Most People Would Have Taken That Meeting” (Video)
President Trump defended his son Donald Trump Jr. in Paris on Thursday during his press conference with French President Emanuel Macron.
Trump was asked about his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump tower in June of last year.
President Trump responded:
“My son is a wonderful young man. He took a meeting with a Russian lawyer, not a government lawyer, but a Russian lawyer. It was a short meeting. It was a meeting that went very, very quickly — very fast — two of the people in the room, one of them left almost immediately and the other was not really focused on the meeting. I do think this from a practical standpoint, most people would have taken that meeting, it’s called opposition research or even research into your opponent.”
