Trump Rails Against Squad, Mueller Report in Speech to Teenagers

HeadlineJul 24, 2019

On Tuesday, Trump railed against former special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation during a speech at an event for conservative high school students in Washington.

President Donald Trump: “I have an Article II, where I have the right to do whatever I want as president. But I don’t even talk about that, because they did a report and there was no obstruction. After looking at it—our great attorney general read it, he’s a total professional—he said, ’There’s nothing here. There’s no obstruction.’”

Trump also renewed attacks on the four progressive congresswomen of color widely referred to as the “Squad.” He repeated his claim that “they hate our country,” and called Michigan Congressmember Rashida Tlaib “vicious” and a “crazed lunatic,” referring to a 2016 video showing Tlaib heckling Trump when he was running for president.
