The AP's Jonathan Lemire on Pres. Trump at G-7: "He doesn't stick to sort of the normal role of an American president ... It's all about confrontation – rather than cooperation."
"It's not a coincidence that there are 4 foreign trips... it's a deliberate attempt to show him [President Trump] looking presidential... while juxtaposing it with Democratic candidates": AP's Jonathan Lemire
Jonathan Lemire on the upcoming Special Counsel Mueller's report: "It's going to be blue versus red. People are gonna see what they want to see from it, but certainly, the White House is going to try to ask their backers to suspend disbelief, and believe Barr and not Mueller."
Under great pressure, Jeff Mason of Reuters and Jonathan Lemire of the Associated Press did an exemplary job today. They were the ones who asked the key questions in today's press conference in Helsinki. Thanks,
