Replying to another question, trump said that with respect to the decision of the Ministry of justice to appoint a special adviser to the investigation of the Russian intervention in elections in the US. “I respect that decision, but it is a witch hunt” – he said at a joint press conference with Colombian leader Juan Manuel Santos.

– Topic of the day: scenarios of impeachment for trump
One of the reasons for the attacks on the incumbent President from the democratic opposition and close to it the US media was in the recent dismissal of the Director of the FBI James Komi. Trump admitted that he is surprised. In his opinion, Komi is bad at their job and were “very unpopular,” so he expected “bipartisan support” to offset this American strongman. The President promised “very soon” to call the successor of the Komi Republic, which, as he believes, “the FBI will be delighted”.
The President assured that he wants to focus on the effective management of the country: “We’re looking forward to when this whole situation will be behind us and we will be able to focus on creating jobs, strengthening the armed forces and in General all those, on which we have long and successfully working, including health care.”
On Wednesday, the U.S. Department of justice announced the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller special adviser to investigate claims of Russian interference in last year’s presidential election.
