1. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"Reporter question: What about the charges against (New England Patriots owner) Bob Kraft? He's a friend of yours.
Trump: Well it's very sad. I was very surprised to see it. He's proclaimed his innocence, totally, but I'm very surprised to see it.
Reporter question: Have you spoken to (Attorney General) Bill Barr about the release of the Mueller report? Have you spoken to him about that?
Trump: No. I have not.
Reporter: Do you expect do?
Trump: At some point, I guess I'll be talking about it. But you know the nice part? There was no collusion. There was no obstruction. There was no anything. So that's the nice part. There was no phone calls, no nothing. We have a, I won the race. You want to know why I won the race because I was a better candidate than she was and it had nothing to do with Russia. And everybody knows it's a hoax. It's one of the greatest hoaxes ever perpetrated on this country. So I look forward to seeing the report. If it's an honest report it will say that. If it's not an honest report it won't."
2. SOUNDBITE (English) Donald Trump, US President:
"Reporter: We haven't gotten your response yet to Amazon pulling out of New York City, your home city, your home state...
Trump: I think it's a tremendous loss to New York City. I think it's a big loss. I think it's, if you look at the deal, the deal was not a great deal from the standpoint of they could have made a better deal than that, a much better deal. But still, I think it's a loss for New York City. And the three billion dollars wasn't a check, it was a form of taxes over a period of time that now they'll never see because you know, they were going to take in a lot of jobs, they were going to take in a lot of taxes. So I think it's a big loss for New York City. It's the kind of thinking that our country is going to on the left, on the radical left, but ultimately it's not good for jobs and it's not good for the economy but it was a big loss for New York City. I come from New York City, I love New York City. I think it was a big loss for New York City."
Reporter: Mr. President, when were you briefed on the Coast Guard member who was arrested for threatening Democrats and other members of the media...
Trump: I'm actually getting a very final briefing and a very complete briefing in about 2 hours, after this. I think it's a shame. I think it's a very sad thing when a thing like that happens and I've expressed that but I'm actually getting a very complete briefing in about 2 hours.
Reporter: Do you think that you bear any responsibility for moderating your language?
Trump: No, I don't. I think my language is very nice."
President Donald Trump is continuing to insist his 2016 presidential campaign did not collude with Russia as the special counsel is showing signs of concluding his investigation.
Trump said at the White House Friday that he won the election "because I was a better candidate ... and it had nothing to do with Russia." He adds that the report will say that "if it's an honest report."
Trump has repeatedly tried to undermine Robert Mueller's work during the two-year probe. Mueller is examining Russian election interference and possible coordination with associates of the president.
At least six Trump aides or advisers have been charged in the investigation.
Asked about Amazon's recent decision to drop its plans for a new headquarters in New York, the president called it "a big loss" for the city.
He also blamed what he's calling "radical left" thinking, which he says isn't good for jobs or the economy.
Amazon abruptly dropped plans last week to build one of its new headquarters in Long Island City, Queens, which could have delivered 25,000 jobs.
The president said he was getting a "final" and "very complete briefing" later Friday on the Coast Guard officer accused of stockpiling guns and compiling a hit list of prominent Democrats and network TV journalists.
Trump told reporters it is a "very sad thing" but said he doesn't believe he bears any responsibility for moderating his language.
