"Our relationship with is worse now than it has ever been, and that includes the Cold War. There is no reason for this. needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together. Stop the arms race?" Trump said.

Attacking Mueller, he tweeted, "Much of the bad blood with Russia is caused by the Fake & Corrupt Russia Investigation, headed up by the all Democrat loyalists, or people that worked for Obama. Mueller is most conflicted of all (except Rosenstein who signed FISA & Comey letter). No Collusion, so they go crazy!

So much about what is going on in the Very calm and calculated with a big focus on open and fair trade with China, the coming meeting and, of course, the in Feels great to have Bolton & Larry K on board, he said referring to the two new members of his national security team.

Trump suggested that the FBI at the offices of his in was the result of the investigation that he said has found no collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia.
