The tweet may lead to a revision of The Mueller Report.
Donald Trump has gone and done a bit of an oopsie in responding to findings of The Mueller Report that found no “Trump campaign official or associate conspired or knowingly co-ordinated” with Russian operatives during the 2016 campaign.
While he usually remembers to use Google Translate for Putin’s messages before tweeting them out, this time the US President forgot to do so in his excitement about Mueller’s findings. The tweet was meant to read “Thanks to Bob Mueller for showing that the last two years have been nothing more than a SAD WITCH-HUNT. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.” Instead the tweet was quite clearly in Russian and seemed to translate to MAKE AMERICA BIG, which seemed to give the game away both in terms of collusion and the flaws of automated translation software.
Happily for the US President, Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not find there was a conspiracy between Trump and Russian operatives in the 2016 election, although he did find the collusion between Hillary Clinton and the Democratic establishment was of great assistance.
Establishment Democrats are still confident the two years spent obsessing over Russian collusion rather than addressing the root causes of his election has been time well spent.
