That’s the latest line from the president holding a press conference at Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Florida.
The pool reporter at Mar-a-Lago says:
News conference begins at 4:20 pm. Trump seated on sofa beside Linda McMahon. He announces she is resigning as Small Business Administration director and is going to help with Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign.
“This is an outstanding woman. Who has done an outstanding job,” Trump said.
Trump says he will nominate her successor in a short time.
The president also says he has a lot of confidence in AG Barr. Again calls Mueller investigation a hoax and says he has nothing to hide.
