Like father like son: Donald Trump Jr took to Twitter on Monday (July 10) to defend his meeting last year with a Russian lawyer who promised damaging information about Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Initially he said the meeting focused on adoptions and he didn’t even mention the Clinton angle. Now he’s unapologetic about it – but says the meeting was basically pointless.
“Obviously I’m the first person on a campaign to ever take a meeting to hear info about an opponent…went nowhere but had to listen,” Trump Jr. said on Twitter.
“No inconsistency in statements, meeting ended up being primarily about adoptions. In response to further Q’s I simply provided more details,” he added.
