Trump complains the media only talks about Russia— then tweets about the Steele dossier
Donald Trump on Saturday complained that media is ignoring “great jobs numbers” and “rising wages” in favorite of “Russia, Russia, Russia”—and then immediately ranted about the Russia investigation.
In one message, the president fumed that “nobody even talks about” the economy, and only wants to focus on the ongoing FBI counterintelligence investigation into a foreign power influencing our election processs.
