JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

President Donald Trump said Monday that he won’t use any information on his 2020 opponent mined by a foreign entity, adding that he “doesn’t need it.”

“All I need is the opponents I’m looking at,” he said with a smirk. “I’m liking what I see.”

Trump was speaking in the Oval Office during a visit by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.

Special counsel Robert Mueller cleared Trump of colluding with Russia in 2016, though he did not come to a conclusion on obstruction in part because of his belief that a sitting president cannot be indicted.
