Trump on the special prosecutor: "I respect the move, but the entire thing has been a witch hunt" pic.twitter.com/Gcp0Z1pmIL— POLITICO (@politico) May 18, 2017
ORIGINAL STORY: In a pair of early-morning tweets, President Trump lamented the fact that so much has been made of the investigation into alleged ties between his campaign and Russian officials, saying that he believed former President Obama and Hillary Clinton should have been investigated by a special "councel."
Trump went on to say that he believed that he was the subject of "the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!"

Unfortunately for Trump, Twitter is interested in his words for all the wrong reasons.
