    Trump tried to defend retweeting a conspiracy tweet about Clinton and Epstein. For someone who spends so much time tweeting, he seems to not understand that it doesn't matter if he didn't write it. As POTUS, when he retweets something, it's an endorsement.

    When confronted about it - he had this to say:

    “He is a very highly respected conservative pundit,” Trump said Tuesday of Terrence K. Williams, the man whose tweet the president shared.

    “He's a big Trump fan. And that was a retweet. That wasn't from me. That was from him. But he's a man with half a million followers, a lot of followers,” Trump continued, speaking to reporters as he traveled from his summer getaway in Bedminster, New Jersey, to Pennsylvania.

    “Basically what we're saying is, we want an investigation. I want a full investigation,” Trump added.

    Obviously, Trump is still affected by the loss of his close friend, Jeffrey Epstein and making him say crazy things.

    Or he's upset he can't go on any more "retreats"

    I see we're trying to deflect again because criticizing Trump (alone) is too painful for some.

    You must be an authority on deflection. Because this is your mainstay when you don’t like the answer.
