Half Of Americans Believe Trump Is The Victim Of A ‘Witch Hunt’


"Very few think it is legit!"

President Trump talks with journalists before departing the White House Wednesday.

"So, if there was knowingly & acknowledged to be "zero" crime when the Special Counsel was appointed, and if the appointment was made based on the Fake Dossier (paid for by Crooked Hillary) and now disgraced Andrew McCabe (he & all stated no crime), then the Special Counsel should never have been appointed and there should be no Mueller Report", he said in follow-up tweets.

"It's sort of interesting that a man just writes a report", Trump said of the Special Counsel, who has been hard at work for 22 months and three days investigating Russia's attack on the USA electoral system.

One of Trump's most ardent defenders, North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows, tweeted last month that Democrats will "keep investigating if Mueller doesn't find what they want". Just three percent did not have an opinion.

Trump jumped on the survey's finding that half of Americans agree with his claim that the Mueller probe is a "witch hunt". "Man gets appointed by a deputy and he writes a report", the president said outside the White House as he was embarking on a trip to OH to visit a tank factory and attend a fundraiser. Mueller has previously held several senior positions in the Justice Department, including FBI Director.

This downward trend could be explained by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) recent remark that any attempt to remove Trump from office will not be worthwhile and even further divide the nation.

Overall 53 percent of Democrats support impeachment compared to 6 percent of Republicans.

"I had the greatest electoral victory - one of them - in the history of our country, tremendous success, tens of millions of voters and now somebody's going to write a report who never got a vote", he said. This figure is 5 percentage points lower than it was in 2018, suggesting that more people now are believing the president. A full-throated attack on the investigation, portraying it as a failed coup, could also be the centerpiece of Trump campaign events, including rallies, they say.

More Americans now have more trust in Trump's denials than they do that Mueller's investigation will be fair and accurate.

"Let it come out, let people see it, that's up to the attorney general. and we'll see what happens", Trump told reporters at the White House.
