4. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"I have no idea, I can only tell you one thing again that was proven today: No collusion. There's no collusion. There's no collusion and there hasn't been collusion and it was all a big hoax. And you know it, it was done and stated by the Democrats because they lost an election that they should have won because the Electoral College is a big advantage for Democrats, not for Republicans. And they should have and I ran the clock out, we ran the whole thing, ran up the East Coast from North Carolina to Pennsylvania, then we go up to Wisconsin and Michigan, states that hadn't been won for many, many years, we won those states. And they said how do we how do we solve this horrible problem, we lost an election that in theory, some people, I didn't, but some people thought they were going to win, right? And they said, I have an idea, let's blame Russia. It was a hoax. It was all a big hoax. And now you're seeing it today again, no collusion. The other day, no collusion. There was no collusion. When I had to go to Wisconsin, I went to Wisconsin. When I had to go to Michigan and Pennsylvania and South Carolina and North Carolina, that's where I'd go. When I had to go to Florida which we won easily, I went to Florida. You don't call Russia when you go to Florida. Russia won't help you much."
