Trump: ‘I’m Extremely Happy’

November 16, 2018 1:08 p.m.

President Trump brushed off a question on Friday about whether his recent tweet-storm against the Mueller probe was a sign of agitation over the investigation.

I’m not agitated. It’s a hoax,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. “The whole thing is a hoax. There was no collusion. I’m very happy. I’m happy with the White House. I’m extremely happy with our country. We’re doing better on the economy, maybe it’s the best economy we’ve ever had. They may be the best unemployment numbers and employment numbers that we’ve ever had. There are more people working in the United States right now at this moment than have ever worked in the United States by far. By far. I’m extremely happy. I’m very happy with almost all of my Cabinet.”

In a series of tweets on Thursday, Trump railed against the Mueller probe, saying that universities would one day study “what highly conflicted (and NOT Senate approved) Bob Mueller and his gang of Democrat thugs have done to destroy people.” The aggressive tweets led to speculation that special counsel Robert Mueller was gearing up to unveil more indictments in his investigation.
