President Donald Trump is seen boarding Air Force One on Saturday in New Jersey, the day before he reiterated his stance that the focus of Donald Trump Jr.'s 2016 Trump Tower meeting was to collect incriminating information on presidential opponent Hillary Clinton.

As a reminder, that meeting brought together the president's son Donald Trump Jr., his son-in-law Jared Kushner, the president's then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort with a Russian lawyer named Natalia Veselnitskaya and others. After initially claiming that the meeting had nothing to do with Clinton and instead about Russian adoption sanctions, this weekend's tweet seemed to admit that Trump's team went to the meeting in hopes of getting the dirt that was promised.

"I don't know the answer to that".

The Trump team has argued that Mr Trump Jr ultimately did not receive any damaging information about Mrs Clinton at the meeting.

Trump past year said on Twitter that "most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent".

"Now he says, in writing, on Twitter, that the meeting with the Russians was to get information on an opponent".

Quickly, though, that explanation fell apart, and we learned that Trump Jr had actually been promised harmful information about Democrats, including Hillary Clinton.

Conor McGregor to return to UFC with October title bout
McGregor was arrested, but was sentenced last month to perform five days of community service, avoiding jail time in a plea deal. As it played, Diaz abruptly left the presser he was at and tweeted "I'm not fighting on that show (expletive) the UFC ".

Trump was responding to a Washington Post report this weekend that although he does not think his eldest son intentionally broke the law, he is anxious that Trump Jr. may have unintentionally stumbled into legal jeopardy and is embroiled in Mueller's investigation largely because of his connection to the president.

The Post had reported that the statement to The Times was dictated by the president, though at the time Trump's lawyers denied his involvement.

Trump might as well have just confirmed The Post's report that he is anxious about what the meeting portends for his son.

Political campaigns routinely pursue opposition research on their opponents, but not with foreign representatives from a country viewed as an adversary.

The infamous meeting was thrust back into the spotlight last month after Trump's former personal attorney, Michael Cohen, alleged Trump approved the meeting.

But, as NPR's Brian Naylor reports, if Mueller could prove Trump was aware of the meeting in advance, "or cast doubt on denials by Trump and Trump Jr., it would be a dramatic addition to Mueller's investigation into Russian election interference in the 2016 presidential race and possible collusion by the Trump campaign".

"That happens when you have cases like this".

"Citing multiple sources, the Times reports that Trump Jr".

"There is a moron on Fox claiming I chain smoke cigarettes worrying about the President's tweets". Trump tweeted, igniting further controversy on just how much, and if at all, he and his campaign had colluded with Russian Federation.

"There are federal statutes that prohibit receiving something of value from a foreign national, foreign entity, or foreign government", he continued. Trump has publicly expressed a desire to be interviewed, but his lawyers have repeatedly objected to the investigators' proposals. Now, in the face of that, President Trump had to change the message. I say, as they come, Tax them.

'They purposely cause great division & distrust.
