President Donald Trump has just a small group of people in the White House that he can trust, his oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., claimed in an interview airing Tuesday.
“It’s just a much smaller group than I would like it to be,” Trump Jr. told ABC News’ “Good Morning America.”
“It would be easier to get things done if you’re able to fully trust everyone around you.”
The president’s son added that he thinks the writer of a New York Times opinion piece about his father’s administration should be investigated, and the article was written by a “low-level person.”
Trump Jr. also dismissed journalist Bob Woodward’s book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” which was released on Tuesday.
“People who are well respected in this administration have come out and denied it,” he commented. “If Gen. [James] Mattis had an issue with my father, he would say it to his face,”
Trump Jr. also said he’s not worried about his potential legal exposure concerning a meeting between himself and Russians at Trump Tower, and he denied that he spoke with his father about the meeting.
He said he thinks Democrats will use special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation to try to sway the upcoming midterms, and he believes Republicans will have trouble keeping a majority in the House unless “our people, the MAGA people” turn out to vote.
He also attacked former President Barack Obama for his criticism of the president, calling his move to take credit for a strong economy “literally the most asinine thing that I’ve ever heard.”
