President Donald Trump took a few questions during a White House lawn press spray as he started his journey to Argentina for the G20 summit. When asked about Thursday morning’s bombshell news that Michael Cohen had pleaded guilty lying to Congress about communicating with Russia in the run-up to the 2016 General Election, Trump spared little sympathy for his former lawyer.
The Commander in Chief called Cohen a “weak person and not a very smart person” and “what he’s trying to do is get a reduced sentence.” It is not clear if Trump is claiming that Cohen lied to Congress in 2016, a charge to which he has pleaded guilty, or is he claiming that Cohen is lying about the previous lying to Congress.
At issue was the development of a Trump Tower hotel in Moscow, which Trump explained as a “well-known project” that “everyone knew about.” Trump defended looking into the real estate development as a “deal that didn’t happen” but that if he “did do it, then there would have been nothing to it,” as he was running his business while running for president.
Trump’s claim of looking into business discussions with Russia stands in stark contrast to his previous and repeated position that he never had any business dealings.
