As the noose is tightening around Donald Trump’s neck for his alleged ties with the enemy nation Russia, the businessman-turned-politician has gone berserk.

Trump, once again on Sunday, raised his personal doubts about the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller who is leading a judicial team to know the extent of Trump-Russia ties that allegedly helped Trump win the 2016 presidential race.

In a new allegation, Trump wants Americans to believe that Mueller has a conflict of interest in the probe that he is conducting against Trump. Since Trump hardly substantiate his claims, he asked in an interrogative sentence – instead of an unambiguous assertion – if the special counsel will reveal his conflict of interest in the Russia probe.

“Is Robert Mueller ever going to release his conflicts of interest with respect to President Trump, including the fact that we had a very nasty and contentious business relationship. I turned him down to head the FBI (one day before appointment as special counsel) and James Comey is his close friend,” Trump tweeted in a totally irresponsible manner without telling what he wants to contend.

The beleaguered President also blamed Mueller for appointing Democrats to conduct the probe against him. “Some of the angry Dems have worked for Crooked Hillary,” Trump used his usual vulgar language against his bête noire Hillary Clinton just to create a confusion around Mueller investigation.

“There is no collusion! The Robert Mueller rigged witch hunt – headed now by 17 (increased from 13, including an Obama White House lawyer) Angry Democrats – was started by a fraudulent dossier, paid for by Crooked Hillary and the DNC. Therefore, the witch hunt is an illegal scam!” Trump tweeted in his incorrect, broken English.

He also blamed truthful American media for all the troubles around him. Trump targeted The Washington Post and The New York Times, saying they are writing bad stories around him. He added that 90% of media coverage of his administration is negative, although he did not tell how he calculated the percentage of negative coverage.

As Trump has limited knowledge about everything that he is supposed to handle, he fails to understand that there is nothing good or bad and negative or positive in journalism. It is either true or false.

Media is not supposed to please politicians like Trump. If Trump does not like the stories published by the newspapers or shown on TV, he has no right to attack the freedom of the press.

“I will not allow our great country to be sold out by anti-Trump haters,” Trump said in a totally irrelevant statement. “When the media – driven insane by their Trump Derangement Syndrome – reveals internal deliberations of our government, it truly puts the lives of many, not just journalists, at risk! Very unpatriotic! Freedom of the press also comes with a responsibility to report the news,” Trump suggested with an aim to divert people’s attention from the Mueller probe.
