Key Words: Trump boasts of his policy knowledge, says Mueller will be fair

President Donald Trump on Thursday said he was confident that special counsel Robert Mueller would conduct a fair investigation into Russia’s election meddling, and brushed off criticism that he lacked knowledge of his administration’s major policies.

“I know the details of taxes better than anybody. Better than the greatest C.P.A. I know the details of health care better than most, better than most.”

In a wide-ranging interview with the New York Times from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, Trump insisted 16 times there was no collusion between his campaign team and Russian officials, and urged Mueller’s investigation to end soon.

“There’s been no collusion. But I think he’s going to be fair,” Trump said of Mueller. “It makes the country look very bad, and it puts the country in a very bad position,” he added. “So the sooner it’s worked out, the better it is for the country.”

He also said he was disappointed in China after reports that it was continuing to ship oil to North Korea despite sanctions, and said he knew Roy Moore would lose the Alabama Senate race but felt he had to support the Republican nominee by default.

Trump also suggested he will eventually get more favorable treatment from the press because they need him, and profit from his presidency.

“Another reason that I’m going to win another four years is because newspapers, television, all forms of media will tank if I’m not there because without me, their ratings are going down the tubes,” he said. “So they basically have to let me win. And eventually, probably six months before the election, they’ll be loving me because they’re saying, ‘Please, please, don’t lose Donald Trump.’ OK.”
