Trump jr’s meet­ing with Rus­sian ‘not on’

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

WASH­ING­TON: A ma­jor­ity of US vot­ers say it was not ap­pro­pri­ate for one of US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s sons to ac­cept an of­fer to meet with a Rus­sian lawyer who promised “dam­ag­ing in­for­ma­tion” about Hil­lary Clin­ton dur­ing the 2016 elec­tion.

Ac­cord­ing to the Politico/ Morn­ing Con­sult poll re­leased last week, 52% vot­ers say a meet­ing be­tween Don­ald Trump jr and the Rus­sian lawyer was in­ap­pro­pri­ate, com­pared with 23% who say the meet­ing was ap­pro­pri­ate.

The re­main­ing 25% have no opin­ion, the poll said.

While Repub­li­cans are less trou­bled by the meet­ing, with 44% say­ing the meet­ing was ap­pro­pri­ate, four in five Democrats re­gard the meet­ing as in­ap­pro­pri­ate, the poll showed. Xin­hua
