Trump ‘weighed in’ on son’s Russia claim
WASHINGTON: The White House said on Tuesday that US President Donald Trump “weighed in” on a statement his eldest son had made about a controversial Russia-related meeting.
The statement that Donald Trump jn issued “is true”, said White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders.
The meeting between Trump jr and a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign was brought back into the limelight after Trump reportedly dictated the July 8 statement that claimed the meeting was “primarily” about the adoption of Russian children by American families. Sanders pushed back on the story, saying Trump “certainly didn’t dictate” the statement but he “weighed in as any father would, based on the limited information that he had”. Xinhua
