Donald Trump denied that he was unaware of his son’s meeting last year with a Russian lawyer at the heart of the latest White House controversy, telling Reuters he only learned of it a couple of days ago. “No, that I didn’t know until a couple of days ago when I heard about this” Trump said in a Reuters White House interview when asked if he knew that his son was meeting with the Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya in June last year.
The president also said he did not fault his son for holding the meeting. “I think many people would have held that meeting” he said in his first “extensive, in-person reaction to the meeting, which has sent shockwaves through the White House.”
On Tuesday night, Trump Jr. said in an interview with Sean Hannity that he might have handled the encounter differently but said he did nothing wrong. He offered to testify under oath before Congress to that effect. The president praised his son’s performance in a Wednesday morning tweet.
