President Trump defended his son, Donald Trump Jr., Wednesday morning on Twitter, commented on the “Fake Media” and Russia, and spoke briefly about healthcare and ISIS.

“My son Donald did a good job last night. He was open, transparent and innocent. This is the greatest Witch Hunt in political history. Sad!” Trump wrote, referring to his son’s interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity Tuesday evening.

Trump Jr. told the Fox News host the meeting was “a nothing” and that he considered it “opposition research” at the time, which was before Russia hysteria took hold of Washington. He did admit though that he “probably would have done things a little differently” if he could have.

Trump then reminded his followers to be on guard when they hear the term “sources say.”

“Remember, when you hear the words "sources say" from the Fake Media, often times those sources are made up and do not exist,” he said.

Trump also wrote that the Washington Times stated “Democrats have willfully used Moscow disinformation to influence the presidential election against Donald Trump."

In other news, Trump retweeted a “Fox & Friends” segment about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell delaying August recess to focus on the healthcare bill.

Finally, he talked about ISIS and gangs.

“ISIS is on the run & will soon be wiped out of Syria & Iraq, illegal border crossings are way down (75%) & MS 13 gangs are being removed,” he wrote.
