During a Thursday lunch with television news anchors, President Donald Trump gave more detailed comments on the appointment of a special counselor in the investigation of Russia's involvement in the 2016 election — which he called “the single greatest witch hunt” in the history of American politics during an early morning tweetstorm,

“I believe it hurts the country terribly because it shows we're a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country,” he said, according to CNN. “And we have very important things to do right now,” he added, citing trade deals, military issues, and the spread of nuclear weapons.

“It also happens to be a pure excuse for the Democrats having lost an election that they should have easily won because of the Electoral College being slated so much in their way,” he said. “That's all this is. I think it shows division, and it shows that we're not together as a country. And I think it's a very, very negative thing.”

Trump closed his comments by stating that “hopefully, this can go quickly, because we have to show unity if we're going to do great things with respect to the rest of the world.”

IntegrityImportant(6 likes)Melissa, I couldn't have said it better although I'd take it a step further and wager he could accomplish at least some of what he wanted to achieve except for those sharks you mention.  They want things to remain the same regardless of the fact that most of those "things" are failing right now.I've thought about this a lot lately. We humans were given free will and sometimes we do use that for the good like when we raise a productive child or rescue a homeless animal or donate to charties. But that dark side, goodness gracious the ugliness we wrought. It is what it is I suppose, those who focus on nothing but that "P" tape while ignoring all Hillary's faults/misdeeds. Or it could be the other way around because regardless if there is a way to violate mankind, we'll find it. 
Anonymous(4 likes)I'm going to say this and sum up this whole darn thing!  Wash. DC is an island all it's own,  the political game in this town is harsh.  Saying this a Dem,  I really  do not think Trump thought he would actually become President,  and once he did,  it's was,  'o no,  what now'.  I do believe he thought he was such a great business man he was going to come in here and shake DC up.  He is a very good business man but had no clue how this political game works. The Dems wanna eat him alive and the Reps will back him as long as it does not hurt them in the polls.  Im not sure he was ready for all this or even expected all this,  he is seeing that this political game is not a game at all.  Sharks on every side,  just depends on what side your on so your not eaten alive!
