Trump speechwriter attended conference with white nationalists

The New York Times has responded to the President's attack on their reporting, Tweeting their own response to Trump.

The White House event followed the release of a letter Trump wrote to state and local officials asking them to publicly defend immigration, customs and border agents.

Despite his concerns, Trump did not comment on whether he would ultimately agree to an interview with Mueller, who is, among other things, investigating whether Trump's campaign team colluded with Russians during the 2016 election and whether Trump has obstructed justice in the probe.

Peter Wallison, who was White House counsel for President Ronald Reagan during the Iran-Contra investigation, said that cooperating with a special counsel does not necessarily mean providing damaging information. "Not the truth", Giuliani said.

The U.S. leader started the work week with a string of broadsides against the Mueller probe, complaining the prosecutor "is just someone looking for trouble" as he investigates Trump campaign aides' links to Russian Federation and whether Trump, as president, obstructed justice by trying to thwart the inquiry.

During a demagoguery-heavy White House event on Monday titled the "Salute to the Heroes of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection", President Trump invited a Latino CBP officer to the podium and told the assembled crowd that he "speaks ideal English".

Trump objected and insisted that McGahn would never "rat" on the president as John Dean had in the 1970s.

He continued: "Some members of the media are very Angry at the Fake Story in the New York Times". Also, Nixon knew I was meeting with prosecutors, b/c I told him.

"The fact is, people respect law and order and they love our law enforcement and I think we're gonna have much more of a red wave than what you're going to see as a phony blue wave", Trump said. Brennan told NBC's Meet the Press he might take Trump to court.

"Mr. McGahn answered the Special Counsel team's questions fulsomely and honestly", William Burck said, explaining that the President did not ask Mr. McGahn to refrain from discussing any matters.

"The President encouraged him to testify, is happy that he did, is quite secure that there is nothing in the testimony that will hurt the President", Mr Giuliani said.

"Where's the Collusion?" Trump wrote.

In the 1950s, McCarthy led a Cold War-era inquisition of alleged Communists who he claimed had infiltrated American governmental institutions.

Trump's allegation that Mueller's investigation constitutes a modern-day version of McCarthyism capped a torrent of insults he launched on Sunday morning against his actual and perceived political adversaries.

Giuliani also tried to make the case that having Trump sit down for an interview with Mueller's team wouldn't accomplish much because of the he-said-she-said nature of witnesses' recollections.
