Donald Trump Responds To Jr.’s Russia Email Scandal

On Tuesday, Donald Trump Jr. broke the Internet when he tweeted out emails that showed him expressing interest in meeting with a Russian lawyer who promised "incriminating information" related to Hillary Clinton as part as the Russian government's effort to help Trump win.

Don Jr's response to the offer: "I love it."

Many felt this revelation was a smoking gun on the question of whether the Trump team colluded with Russian officials to win last year's election. 

Not surprisingly, President Trump did not see it that way. In a statement, Trump Sr. defended his son:

"My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency."

Trump Sr. offered more support for his son on Twitter, saying "he is a great person who loves our country" and praising Don Jr.'s appearance on Sean Hannity Tuesday night.

When asked for further comment on Tuesday, Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to answer any additional questions on the matter and referred reporters to Donald Trump Jr.'s legal team. 

While she may not have had more to say on the matter, others certainly did.

Jose is loving the fact that "...but the emails" actually ended up being true, in a way.

Jr. released a statement saying he would have done things differently. Some people felt the need to "translate" that statement.
