Trump says special counsel ‘divides the country’

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says that the appointment of a special counsel for the ongoing investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russia “divides the country.”

Trump is reacting to the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller to lead the investigation after he fired FBI Director James Comey.

Trump said Thursday that he respects “the entire thing” but said that he personally has no ties to Russia.

He reiterated his earlier comments that the investigation is a “witch hunt.”

Trump says, “we want to bring this country of ours together.”

Trump was speaking in a joint press conference with Colombia’s President Juan Manuel Santos.

    It’s the media that collude with the Democrats by running their distortions of factual information that’s largely dividing the country. What they might not quite understand is that their actions are to their own detriment by creating a backlash from many. I think that the media has been in bed with the Democrats for several decades, and to condemn them in any way would be admitting their complicity, and they’re not about to let that happen.
