Videos of the Day: Trump Says Release of Mueller Report up to Attorney General
President Donald Trump says it’s “totally up to the attorney general” whether the public gets to read special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
Trump was interviewed in CBS’s “Face the Nation,” and talked about a wide-range of topics. When asked whether he’d have a problem with a public release, he said it’s up to the attorney general.
Trump said: “Even the Mueller Report said it had nothing to do with the campaign. When you look at some of the people and the events—it had nothing to do … So far, this thing’s been a total witch hunt. And it doesn’t implicate me in any way. There was no collusion. There was no obstruction. There was no nothing.”
Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said last week the probe is “close to being completed.”
Trump Says Football is ‘Really Tough’ and Wouldn’t Steer Son Barron Towards It
In the same interview with CBS, President Trump—also a NFL fan— said he wouldn’t steer his son, Barron, toward football. He said it’s “a dangerous sport” but he also said he wouldn’t stand in the way if the soccer-playing 12-year-old wanted to put on pads.
Trump told CBS before the Super Bowl that football is “really tough.”
When the interview hostess asked: “Would you let your son Barron play football?” Trump said: “It’s a very tough question, It’s a very good question. If he wanted to, yes. Would I steer him that way? No, I wouldn’t.”
“So, you know, I hate to say it because I love to watch football. I think the NFL is a great product but I really think that, as far as my son—well, I’ve heard NFL players saying they wouldn’t let their sons play football. So it’s not totally unique, but I would have a hard time with it,” he said.
