Speaking to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House Thursday morning, President Trump slammed former Special Counsel Robert Mueller and called him "the worst never trumper."
"I think Mueller is a true never-Trumper," Trump said. "No, Russia did not help me get elected."
“Russia didn't help me at all. Russia, if anything, I think, helped the other side,” he continued. "I helped me get elected...Russia had nothing to do with it at all."
Trump also went after Mueller for his ties to fired FBI Director James Comey.

"And he loves Comey ... whether it's love or deep like, but he was conflicted, Look, Robert Mueller should have never been chosen," he adds. https://t.co/eWjzLHSv5j pic.twitter.com/y5ztoBpW9c
The comments came before President Trump left Washington D.C. for Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado where he will deliver the commencement speech at the United States Air Force Academy Graduation Ceremony.
Earlier in the morning, he took to Twitter to address comments made by Mueller from the Justice Department on Wednesday.
The Greatest Presidential Harassment in history. After spending $40,000,000 over two dark years, with unlimited access, people, resources and cooperation, highly conflicted Robert Mueller would have brought charges, if he had ANYTHING, but there were no charges to bring!— Donald J.

Russia, Russia, Russia! That’s all you heard at the beginning of this Witch Hunt Hoax...And now Russia has disappeared because I had nothing to do with Russia helping me to get elected. It was a crime that didn’t exist. So now the Dems and their partner, the Fake News Media,.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 30, 2019
....say he fought back against this phony crime that didn’t exist, this horrendous false accusation, and he shouldn’t fight back, he should just sit back and take it. Could this be Obstruction? No, Mueller didn’t find Obstruction either. Presidential Harassment!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 30, 2019
