Transcript for President Trump on Mueller report: "Let it come out, let people see it"
The world I think to. This country and the world is literally waiting on pins and needles for this smaller report to drop I want to go to Karen Travers he's at the White House. Care and what is the waiting feel life in DC. But that pretty miserable day here in Washington is you can probably hear the rain is pouring down the president is left. The White House complex ahead to an event with business CEOs. When I can see him though for a couple of hours so the waiting game continues but yesterday. The president was asked if you know when the Lawler reported going to come out and said he has no idea. So he's waiting just like everybody else if you believe what he said yesterday the and also asked by our colleague Jon Karl about whether or not the Muller reports should be made public his needed to say yesterday at the White House. The public have a right to see them all report. And Kimberly the president often said let the report come out let people see it he's at he's very eager to see as no surprise there. After he spent the last year and a half trying to undermine that investigation. The president though it is now just like everybody else waiting for this but it is notable that. We the president had suggested on Twitter he did not want they are to be a Muller reports. The question why did he mean more broadly no Muller reports he didn't think there should be had been in an investigation in the first place. Or that he was sending a signal to the attorney general. About what he would like to see about its release give ultimately as we know it's up to the attorney general bill bar about how much of this report. If any of it comes out. Absolutely well we're all waiting and in the meantime president trump as we know was in Lima Ohio yesterday they still making comments about. The late Senator McCain why care and why is he still talking about Senator McCain. Then you had the big question that everybody would like to know the answer to you know why aren't a day where the president. It heading onto Ohio to take someone in the victory lap. This is an army tank plant he was visiting yesterday the only one in the country. It makes the M one Abrams tanks and don't you Obama administration even the brink of closing. Because production was down there were jobs loss there. Now because of big increases in military spending by the trump administration. That plant is booming again production is up there are jobs being created so the president goes there to talk about that. Though he takes a bizarre detour in the middle of his remarks talking about John McCain talking about what he said John McCain did not do for veterans. And then he also said this he didn't stop there. I gave them the kind of funeral that he wanted which as president I had to approve. I don't care about this I didn't get thank you that's okay. We send them on the way but I wasn't a fan of John McCain so now what we could say is now. We're all said. I don't think I have to answer that question but the press keeps what do you think of McCain what do you think. Not my kind of guy but some people like him and I think that's great. Kimberly the questions from the press serving and the president have been tweeting about John McCain a lot over the last couple of days. Not clear why there's been this renewed focus on the late Republican senator who passed away seven months ago. We should also note that the president didn't approve the funeral he approved the use of an air force plane to transfer McCain's casket from Arizona. Here to Washington for services. And president prompted notably not invited to John McCain's funeral at the Washington National Cathedral that was by design by the family. Three former presidents Barack Obama Bill Clinton and George W. Bush were all in attendance. I write here and thank you so much.
