President Donald Trump is speaking out after his son, Donald Trump Jr., released a series of emails. The emails contained information from during the campaign.

In the documents, Trump Jr. is told of information that could potentially tie Hillary Clinton, who at the time was a candidate for president, to the Russian government. Trump Jr. responded back saying that he would “love it” if it proves to be true.

The story has dominated news headlines since it broke on Tuesday. Read the full email by clicking on the tweet linked below.

The emails also had copies contained in them and were sent to Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort. Now, liberals are crying out that the very interest Trump Jr. expressed in taking the meeting to discuss potential information on Hillary is nothing short of collusion with the Russians.

President Trump responded by saying his son is a high-quality person and that he “applauded” his transparency. Trump Jr. did not have to release the emails but did so willingly.

What do you think about all of this? Is it simply not a big deal or should more investigating be done?
