Presently in reaction. Deputy attorney general rob rose and Stein's decision to appoint a special counsel. To investigate the Russia. Russian interference in the campaign was this the right move or is this part of it which. Well I respect the move put the entire thing has been a witch hunt and there is no collusion between certainly myself and my campaign. But I can always speak from myself and the Russians zero. I think it divides the country. I think we have a very divided country because of that and many other things. So I can tell you that we want to bring this. Great country of ours together Jen and I will also say very strongly we've had tremendous success you look at our job numbers. You look at what's going on at the border as we discussed before you look at what will be happening you can see some incredible numbers with respect to the success of general. Mattis and others with. The crisis situation. The numbers are staggering how successful they've been the military has been. Tomorrow as you know I'm going to Saudi Arabia going to Israel. Going to Rome. We have the G-7. That a lot of great things going on so I hate to see anything that divides. I'm fine with whatever people want to do that we have to get back to running this country. Really really well we've made tremendous progress in the last hundred some odd days tremendous products and you see job numbers you see. All of the production that starting. Plants starting to open again happened and open in years. I'm very proud of it that's what I want to be focused on because believe me there's no collusion. Russia is fine. But whether it's Russia or anybody else my total priority believe me is the United States of America so thank you very much.
