On Monday night, the New York Times reported in even more detail about a meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian-connected lawyer. The lawyer had offered to hand over negative information about Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign, and according to yesterday's story, Trump Jr. "was informed in an email that the material was part of a Russian government effort to aid his father's candidacy." He took the meeting anyway.
And President Donald Trump responded with this: SPORTS.
Working hard to get the Olympics for the United States (L.A.). Stay tuned!
Yup. Exactly what's on everybody's mind this morning.
Los Angeles and Paris both lobbied the Olympic Committee on Tuesday, according to USA Today, to host the 2024 Olympics or games even farther off in the future. French President Emmanuel Macron actually spoke to the committee in person on behalf of Paris. Trump sent the above tweet.
And look—it worked. Now we're thinking about the Olympics instead of Russia. Which is fine, because we'll see how much longer Trump can resist tweeting about Donald Trump Jr.
Donald Trump Jr. certainly can't.
