Trump Rails Against ‘Russia Hoax’ in El Paso: The ‘Real Collusion’ Is With Democrats and Russia

In a rant slamming the “Russia hoax,” President Donald Trump claimed during a rally in El Paso on Monday that the “real collusion” was between Democrats and the Russians.

The president also said the “fake news” and the Democrats are colluding too.

Trump started by talking about the Senate Intelligence Committee probe and how, according to him, it showed no collusion between Trump and Russia.

“Just recently as an example Senator Richard Burr from the great state of North Carolina. He is chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee,” Trump said.

He continued on: “They have been investigating the Russia hoax for two years. Think of it. They have interviewed over 200 people. They have studied hundreds of thousands of documents and pages. And Richard just announced that they found no collusion between Donald Trump and Russia.”

The audience applauded.

Trump then said that there was collusion but it was between Hillary Clinton, the Democrats and Russia.

“The fact is that the real collusion was between Hillary and the Democrats and the other side with Russia. That’s where the collusion is,” he insisted. “That’s where the collusion is.”

He also said the “fake news” and Democrats have been colluding too.

“That is starting to make a lot more sense,” Trump told the crowd. “But that is where the collusion is. With the Democrats and with Russia and with others. By the way, there is also collusion between the Democrats and the fake news right here.”

Earlier in the same rally, Trump slammed the media for not giving him good press.
