President Donald Trump on Saturday again denied that his campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election and said he had not done anything improper amid allegations he tried to stop Attorney General Jeff Sessions from recusing himself from the ongoing special counsel investigation.
“Everything I’ve done is 100 percent proper,” Trump said during a press conference on the sidelines of a meeting with congressional leaders at Camp David. “That is what I do, is I do things proper."
He added later, “Just so you understand, there’s been no collusion, there’s been no crime.”
The president also cast doubt on a New York Times report that said Trump asked the White House’s top lawyer to convince Sessions not to recuse himself from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.
He said the story is “off,” but did not explain why it is inaccurate.
The president also said he would be open to talking to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
"Sure, I always believe in talking," he said.
