Trump Uses the ‘That’s Politics!’ Defense

New York Times: “He ran on a promise to end politics as usual. But on Monday morning, President Trump posted a defense on Twitter of his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer promising sensitive government information that could be damaging to Hillary Clinton by saying that it was simply politics as usual.”

“Mr. Trump’s newest tweet about his elder son, Donald Jr., and a controversial meeting on June 9, 2016, at Trump Tower, described the gathering as routine and something almost anyone in his current line of work would do.”
