President Donald Trump this morning says Friday’s release of a Republican House Intelligence Committee memo “totally vindicates” him in the Russia collusion probe.
The president made the declaration via Twitter at 9:40 a.m. as his motorcade rolled from Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach to the Trump International Golf Club in unincorporated West Palm Beach.
Trump arrived Friday night for his 12th presidential visit to Mar-a-Lago. He’s expected to go back to Washington on Sunday night.
Of note to Trump Twitterologists: Today’s tweet, referring to himself in the third person and quotation marks (“Trump”) is only the second time Trump has used this formulation as president. The only other time was last October:
“Can’t believe I got a good story in the @washingtonpost. It discusses the enthusiasm of ‘Trump’ voters through campaign…” the president tweeted Oct. 7.
