Fox News anchor Shepard Smith on Friday said that President Donald Trump was incorrect to claim that former special counsel Robert Mueller was unable to find any evidence suggesting that his 2016 campaign had colluded with Russian operatives.
On Friday, Trump said that Mueller’s report “said no collusion — and it said effectively no obstruction.”
“This is a phrase often repeated by the president. It’s not true,” Smith remarked.
“On collusion, as analyzed by a group at the NYU law school and available online and detailed in the Mueller report itself, the redacted Mueller report documents 14 separate activities that shows strong evidence of collusion — or more precisely, it provides significant evidence that Trump campaign associates coordinated with, cooperated with, encouraged or gave support to the Russia WikiLeaks election interference activities.”

Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera turns his back on Trump after racist furor: His ‘critics were much more right than I’
Deep in a report on the fissures Donald Trump created between himself and some of his defenders, after he launched a racist attack on four Democratic lawmakers that led to an equally racist chant at a North Carolina presidential rally, Fox News contributor Gerald Rivera admitted that he now finds it near impossible to defend the president.
In an interview with the New York Times that came after Rivera blew up on a fellow Fox News host over the "send her back" chant aimed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) the longtime Fox personality said he has all but given up on Trump.

Tens of thousands march again in huge Hong Kong anti-government rally
Hong Kong witnessed another huge anti-government march on Sunday with seemingly no end in sight to the turmoil engulfing the finance hub, sparked by years of rising anger over Beijing's rule.
The city has been plunged into its worst crisis in recent history by weeks of marches and sporadic violent confrontations between police and pockets of hardcore protesters.
The initial protests were lit by a now-suspended bill that would have allowed extraditions to mainland China.
But they have since evolved into a wider movement calling for democratic reforms, universal suffrage and a halt to sliding freedoms in the semi-autonomous territory.
