WASHINGTON (Conspiracy Talk News) – The president of the United States, Donald Trump, maintains in an interview with The New York Times that there has been no conspiracy with Russia in his election campaign, and says the investigation harms the image of the United States.
According to the interview that the New York newspaper publishes today, the North American leader assures that “there has been no conspiracy” with the Russian Government to favor his electoral candidacy against the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Trump thinks that, in any case, he will be treated impartially by special prosecutor, Robert Mueller.
The Republican leader repeats up to fourteen times that “there was no conspiracy” with Russia in the improvised 30-minute conversation he had with the journalist at his golf club in West Palm Beach (Florida), where he enjoys his Christmas holidays.
He attributes the plot with Russia to the Democrats and insists that it was Hillary Clinton’s ignorance of the presidential election system that caused her defeat and not a conspiracy with Moscow.
“They made the history of Russia as a hoax, a stratagem, an excuse for an electoral defeat that, in theory, the Democrats should have won with the Electoral College,” he says.
“I did not make deals with Russia, I won by being far better candidate. I won because I made the right campaign and she did not. She campaigned to win the popular vote. I campaigned for the Electoral College, “explains Trump.
“The genius is that the popular vote is a completely different way of campaigning. And Hillary never understood that, “says the US president.
“I went to Maine five times, the genius of the Electoral College is that you go to places you could not go,” says the winner of the 2016 elections, reviewing his victory and his mandate at the end of his first year in the White House.
In defense of his legislative achievements, Trump attacks the Democrats for not accepting agreements on issues such as medical insurance and the program known as Obamacare, whose critical obligation, or the reduction of taxes, which, he reiterates, could be done in a “bipartisan” manner. “
However, he assures that in his infrastructure projects he can count on the support of “as many Democratic and Republican votes”.
“We spent last month 7 trillion dollars in the Middle East. And the Middle East continues to be worse than 17 years ago. And if you want 12 billion to fix roads and highways you can not get it,” insisted president Trump.
“I want at least one Infrastructure Law with a trillion dollars. We want to repair roads, highways and bridges, some of which are in very bad condition, and even some in certain circumstances can collapse, “warns the president who does not doubt that” in ten years they will collapse. “
On other controversial issues such as immigration, it will end with the “lottery” of visas, a system of access to the country that qualifies as improvable, and stresses that it will opt for another based on merits.
Of the commercial issues, he recalls that he intends to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which he say is “appalling for us”.
“If I do not negotiate a good agreement, I will liquidate it in two seconds,” warns Trump, who hours after criticizing China for trafficking in oil with North Korea, says that “war is the only thing more important to me than trade.”
After underlining his good personal relations with the president of China, Xi Jinping, warns that the detriment of the trade deficit and the theft of intellectual property in China, which jointly valued at 650,000 million dollars, can be contemplated differently “if they help with North Korea. “
“But if oil comes in to ( North Korea), I’m not happy,” explained Trump, who also says his twitter is a social networks that reaches the whole world. “
Trump said that without his presidency, the “declining New York Times would be the failed New York Times”, the North American ruler points out that he has “158 million people” as followers in his social networks.
