Trump: Mueller Hearing A "Devastating Day For The Democrats"; "We're Going To Win Bigger Than Ever"

|

President Trump held a media availability to react to former special counsel Robert Mueller's testimony to the House Judiciary Committee and the House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday. The president called the hearings a "disgrace" and a "devastating day" for the Democratic party. He also said the party "hurt themselves badly" and it will affect the 2020 vote.

"I think we're going to win bigger than ever," Trump said of his 2020 prospects.





"They are devastated," he said. "The Democrats lost so big today, their party is in shambles right now. They've got the squad leading their party. They are a mess. Where even you take a look at [...] and so many of the people that were the most outspoken and they say this was a devastating day for the Democrats and you know it, John. and everybody else knows it. This was a devastating day for the Democrats."

Trump said Mueller showed the Democrats not only have nothing, now they have less than nothing. The president said Mueller did a "bad job," however, in all fairness "he had nothing to work with." Trump said the former special counsel's presentation was "way off" because he had no material.

"The Democrats had nothing. And now they have less than nothing," Trump said. "And I think they're going to lose the 2020 election very big, including Congressional seats because of the path that they chose."

"Look, I think Robert Mueller did a horrible job, both today and with respect to the investigation," the president said. "But in all fairness to Robert Mueller, he had nothing to work with. You know you can be a builder but if they don't give you the right materials you're not going to build a very good building. Robert Mueller had no material, he had nothing to work with. So obviously he did very poorly today."

Trump also cited negative reaction to the hearings on the internet and from the "nauseating" networks and called Mueller's conduct "one of the worst performances in the history of the country."

"I don't think anybody that would say he did well," the president said. "I looked at your people. They're saying it was devastating for the Democrats. And even I will tell you the two most nauseous and nauseating networks whose ratings have gone down even said this was a really bad day for the Democrats. So Robert Mueller did a poor job but in all fairness to him he had nothing to work with."

TRUMP: We had a very good day today, the Republican party, our country. There was no defense of what Robert Mueller was trying to defend. In all fairness to Robert Mueller, whether his performance was a bad one or good one, I think everybody understands that. I think everybody understands what was going on. There was no defense to this ridiculous hoax, this witch hunt that's been going on for a long time. Pretty much from the time I came down on the escalator with our First Lady. And it's a disgrace what happened. And I think today proved a lot to everybody, in fact some of my biggest opponents wrote things today that I wouldn't have believed they've written and iI appreciate that they did that. This has been a very bad thing for our country and despite everything we've been through it's been an incredible two and a half years...

I've been going through it for three years, for three years, all non-sense. So this was a very big day for our country. This was a very big day for the Republican party. And you could say it was a great day for me. But I don't even like to say that. It's great. I'll tell you what. I very much appreciate knows incredible warriors that you watched today on television, Republicans, that defended something and defended something very powerful, very important, because they were really defending our country more than anything else they were defending our country. But they were warriors. And they've been warriors for a long time. And everybody knew it was a hoax, especially the Democrats...

If you take a look not only at the report but beyond the report, take a look at not what he said but what he was forced to say. And even your networks and your network and your network -- every one of the networks they put up their hands. We had a couple of cases with -- actually, we had about six cases where they asked our people our representatives' television networks please don't come in tonight we're not doing much on it. and the reason they're not because it's over...

Some of the things that he didn't even know about, some of the things he didn't even know what was going on. But, you know, in the end what he did, he actually probably came through for himself. The performance was obviously not very good. He had a lot of problems. But what he showed more than anything else is that is that this whole thing has been three years of embarrassment and waste of time for our country. And you know what, the Democrats thought they could win an election like this. I think they hurt themselves very badly for 2020...

They are devastated. The Democrats lost so big today, their party is in shambles right now. They've got the squad leading their party. They are a mess. Where even you take a look at [...] and so many of the people that were the most outspoken and they say this was a devastating day for the Democrats and you know it, John. and everybody else knows it. This was a devastating day for the Democrats...

The Democrats had nothing. And now they have less than nothing. And I think they're going to lose the 2020 election very big, including Congressional seats because of the path that they chose. Now, who knows where it goes. From what I hear they're giving up. But I just say I know them too well. They'll never give up. They will go back and try and figure something out. This whole thing -- honestly it's been collusion -- it's been collusion with the media. It's been collusion with other countries. This has been a disaster for the Democrats. and I think we're going to win bigger than ever...

I believe what you are going to find, you are going to find a lot of things that were done very wrong, but that's going on now. That's something you haven't been writing about. And that has to do with the other side. That has to do with the thing called investigate the investigators. Let's see what happens. That's going to be very interesting...

Look, I think Robert Mueller did a horrible job, both today and with respect to the investigation. But in all fairness to Robert Mueller, he had nothing to work with. You know you can be a builder but if they don't give you the right materials you're not going to build a very good building. Robert Mueller had no material, he had nothing to work with. So obviously he did very poorly today.

I don't think there is anybody even among the fakers. I don't think anybody that would say he did well. I looked at your people. They're saying it was devastating for the Democrats. And even I will tell you the two most nauseous and nauseating networks whose ratings have gone down even said this was a really bad day for the Democrats. So Robert Mueller did a poor job but in all fairness to him he had nothing to work with.
