Donald Trump says new Russia probe will clear him of collusion accusations

US President Donald Trump has reacted positively to the appointment of a special counsel to investigate into the links he has been alleged to have with Russia during the 2016 US Presidential Elections.

Donald Trump through a White House statement said that the probe by the new special counsel Robert Mueller III would prove that there was “no collusion” between his election campaign and Russia or for that matter any other foreign power.

The US President’s statement released on Wednesday read: “As I have stated many times, a thorough investigation will confirm what we already know –- there was no collusion between my campaign and any foreign entity.

“I look forward to this matter concluding quickly. In the meantime, I will never stop fighting for the people and the issues that matter most to the future of our country.”

Earlier in the day, President Donald Trump inaugurated the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut. In his speech, Donald Trump told the audience that no politician in history has been treated as worse as he has been by the media.

Donald Trump slammed the media for their negative coverage on him by most of the media which had started ever since he was nominated as the Presidential candidate till date even after being in charge for four months or so.

Giving a piece of advice to the cadets at the Coast Guard Academy, Donald Trump said: “Over the course of your life, you will find that things are not always fair.  You will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve and that are not always warranted.  But you have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight.  Never, ever, ever give up.  Things will work out just fine.

“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately — especially by the media.  No politician in history — and I say this with great surety — has been treated worse or more unfairly.  You can’t let them get you down.  You can’t let the critics and the naysayers get in the way of your dreams.  I guess that’s why I — thank you.  I guess that’s why we won.

“Adversity makes you stronger.  Don’t give in.  Don’t back down.  And never stop doing what you know is right.  Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy.  And the more righteous your right, the more opposition that you will face.”
