President Trump gloated on Twitter Thursday evening, reacting to reports that the infamous secret phone calls his son made prior to the June 2016 Trump Tower meeting weren’t to him.
He also felt it was necessary to clarify amid his relishing that he is, in fact, Donald Trump Jr.’s father.
“The big deal, very mysterious Don Jr. telephone calls, after the innocent Trump Tower meeting, that the media and Dems said were made to his father (me), were just found NOT to be made to me,” he tweeted. “Really sad!”
CNN first reported Thursday that the calls to blocked phone numbers prior to the meeting were between Trump Jr. and two business associates, citing records provided to the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Just out: The big deal, very mysterious Don jr telephone calls, after the innocent Trump Tower meeting, that the media & Dems said were made to his father (me), were just conclusively found NOT to be made to me. They were made to friends & business associates of Don. Really sad!
