According to an article written by Talking Points Memo, President Trump has gone back on his previous statements about having no knowledge of his son’s meeting with a Russian lawyer with the intent of receiving damaging information to be used to smear Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Wednesday, Trump said that he had no knowledge of his son’s meeting in an interview with Reuters, but he also said that he thinks many people would have also taken that meeting, implying that it was okay.
Let’s be clear. It’s not.
“No. That I didn’t know. Until a couple of days ago, when I heard about this. No I didn’t know about that.”
Later that night, he started to sing a different tune.

He told journalists on Air Force One this about that meeting:
“In fact maybe it was mentioned at some point.”
The president is either mentally or morally unfit to do the job of leading the free world, and his ridiculous interactions with members of the press and foreign world leaders are an embarrassment to this country.
He is blatantly sending out two versions of a story, or he is forgetting his lies within hours of telling them.
Regardless, this is beyond old.
