Though he calls the House impeachment inquiry “the worst hoax in the history of our country,” President Donald Trump apparently feels confident enough to handle it on his own.

During a press spray on Friday, Trump brushed off the idea of gathering a team of allies to help him with the investigation into his attempt to pressure the Ukrainian government to damage his political rivals.

“But here’s the thing: I don’t have teams,” he told reporters. “Everyone’s talking about teams. I’m the team.”

“I did nothing wrong,” Trump added.
