Donald Trump skewers Democrats for focusing on the 'Russia hoax' and ignoring important issues, at a rally in Huntington, WV where the governor of that state tonight switched his party alleigance from Democrat to Republican.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: The reason why Democrats only talk about at the totally made up Russia story is because they have no message, no agenda, and no vision.
They don't talk about the all time high stock market.
They don't talk about reforms to the VA, or about manufacturing jobs we're bringing back to America by the hundreds of thousands.
They don't talk about the Keystone pipeline that I immediately approved, or the Dakota Access pipeline.
The Russia story is a total fabrication. It is just an excuse for the greatest loss in the history of American politics. That's all it is.
It is just makes them feel better what they have nothing else to talk about.
What the prosecutor should be look at are hillary clinton's 33 ,000 deleted e-mails!
And they should be looking at the paid Russian speeches. And the owned Russian companies. Or let them look at at the Uranium she sold that's now in the hands of very angry Russians.
Most people know there were no Russians in our campaign. There never were. We didn't win because of Russia. We won because of you. That I can tell you. We won because we totally out worked the other side.
We won because millions of patriotic Americans voted to take back their country. Have you seen any Russians in West Virginia or Ohio or Pennsylvania?
Are there any Russians here tonight? Any Russians?
They can't beat us at the voting booths. They are trying to cheat you out of the future and the future that you want. They are trying to cheat you out of the leadership that you want with a fake story that is demeaning to all of us, and most importantly, demeaning to our country, and demeaning to our constitution.
I just hope the final determination is a truly honest one. Which is what at the the millions of people who gave us our big win in November deserve, and what all Americans who want a better future want and deserve.
Democrat lawmakers will have to decide. They can continue their obsession with the Russian hoax, or they can serve the interests of the American people.
Try winning at the voter booth. Try winning at the voter booth. Not going to be easy, but that's the way you're supposed to do it.
