President Donald Trump on Thursday defended his son, Donald Trump Jr., after he was subpoenaed by the Senate Intelligence Committee.


While speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump was asked if he was caught off-guard by the subpoena.

"I was very surprised to see my son," Trump explained. "My son is very good person. He works very hard. The last thing he needs is Washington, D.C."

"He has testified for 20 hours or something," the president continued. "A massive amount of time. The Mueller report came out. That is the Bible. The Mueller report came out. They said he did nothing wrong."

According to Trump, his son is under fire for meeting with Russians while doing "oppo research" against Hillary Clinton.

"My son is a good person," Trump added. "My son testified for hours and hours. My son was totally exonerated by [special counsel Robert Mueller], who, frankly, does not like Donald Trump. Me, this Donald Trump."

"And, frankly, for my son, after being exonerated, to now get a subpoena?" he said. "To go again and speak again after close to 20 hours of telling everybody that would listen about a nothing meeting? Yeah, I’m pretty surprised."
