Trump: meeting between Attorney General Barr and Italy's Conte was appropriate
President Donald Trump on Wednesday said it was appropriate for U.S. Attorney General William Barr to meet with Italy’s prime minister, Giuseppe Conte, as part of a probe into the origins of the inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016, but he did not know anything about the contents of the meeting, Trend reports citing Reuters.
“I don’t know the details. I just know that our country is looking into the corruption of the 2016 election,” Trump, speaking at a joint news conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella, said about the September meeting. “I don’t know anything about the meeting but certainly it would be appropriate because the word is - and you read it in the same papers that I do - that they did go to other countries to try and hide what they were doing.”
