Trump Lashes Out At Journalists After Mueller Report ‘Does Not Exonerate Him’

President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning aimed his anger at the “Mainstream Media” in a tweet following a dubious summary of the special counsel’s investigation from his Attorney General stating that there was not enough evidence to conclude the president colluded with Russia during the 2016 election.

Trump resurrected his attacks on news outlets and journalists, calling them the “enemy of the people” and the “opposition party,” while accusing reporters of knowing that the Russia investigation would not turn up anything against him.

“The Mainstream Media is under fire and being scorned all over the World as being corrupt and FAKE. For two years they pushed the Russian Collusion Delusion when they always knew there was No Collusion,” he tweeted. “They truly are the Enemy of the People and the Real Opposition Party!”

Conservatives and allies of the president celebrated the conclusion of Robert Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia over the weekend, while taking aim at the news media for reporting that some argued should result in a “reckoning” for journalists.

But the summary of the special counsel’s findings was less clear on the issue of obstruction of justice, saying investigators could not “exonerate” the president.

Trump has often attacked the news media, labeling reporters “the enemy of the people.”
