Everyone, please start synchronize your watches.
I am heading for Canada and the G-7 for talks that will mostly center on the long time unfair trade practiced against the United States. From there I go to Singapore and talks with North Korea on Denuclearization. Won’t be talking about the Russian Witch Hunt Hoax for a while!

Want to bet? This isn’t the first time Trump made such a promise.
Sorry, I’ve got to start focusing my energy on North Korea Nuclear, bad Trade Deals, VA Choice, the Economy, rebuilding the Military, and so much more, and not on the Rigged Russia Witch Hunt that should be investigating Clinton/Russia/FBI/Justice/Obama/Comey/Lynch etc.

That tweet was followed within 24 hours by a whole series of tweets complaining about the media, the justice department, and his own attorney general—all on the topic of the Russia investigation. It took over a week before any of those subjects Trump was “focusing” on made an appearance.
Odds that Trump will make it through the next day, much less the end of his Singapore photo op, without mentioning the investigation seem about as good as Trump coming out of the G7 meeting with positive news on trade.
