Donald Trump has defended his son over a meeting with a Russian lawyer during his presidential campaign, calling him “open, transparent and innocent”.
He tweeted hours after Donald Trump Jr spoke to Fox News about the meeting he was told would offer Kremlin-linked information about Hillary Clinton.
Critics accuse Mr Trump Jr of intent to collude with the Russians, and believe he may have broken federal laws.
Mr Trump Jr told Fox News the meeting was “such a nothing”.
However, he accepted he should have handled it differently.
Earlier in the day Mr Trump Jr had released the email exchange that brought about the meeting, after being informed the New York Times was about to publish it.
