The Trumps stick together
Ever since Donald Trump won the 2016 election, He has been under attack. Friends and family alike, if they are close to Trump they have been attacked as well. Countless times Donald Trump Jr. has come to his family’s defense against the media and critics.
Now it’s Donald Trump’s turn to repay the favor. Reaffirming that the Trumps stick together, President Trump took time during his joint press conference with the French President to stand by his son Don Jr. Scroll down for more.
President Trump slammed the mainstream media and defended his son while addressing a joint press conference in France, telling journalists from around the world Donald Trump Jr. “is a wonderful young man” who took a meeting that “most people in politics probably would have taken.”
The President was in Paris to attend France’s Bastille Day celebrations and to mark the 100th anniversary of America’s entry in to the first World War. While speaking alongside the French leader, Trump was asked to comment on recent reports his son met with a Russian lawyer in the run-up to the the 2016 general election.
“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,” said the President.
“I do think this: I think from a practical standpoint most people would have taken that meeting. It’s called opposition research or even research into your opponent… I’ve had many people call up, ‘We have information on this factor or this person,’ frankly Hillary. That’s very standard in politics, politics is not the nicest business in the world but it’s very standard where they have information and you take the information,” Trump added.
Trump added that the meeting yielded no results, and the media was blowing the entire incident out of proportion.
“Nothing happened from the meeting, zero happened from the meeting. And honestly, I think the press made a very big deal over something that really a lot of people would do,” said Trump.
“I have a son who’s a great young man, he’s a fine person,” the President added. “He took a meeting with a lawyer from Russia, it lasted for a very short period, and nothing came from the meeting. I think it’s a meeting that most people in politics probably would have taken.”
True families stick together and always have each others back. So glad to see our First Family hold those same values.
