Trump: ‘Most people’ would have taken Russian lawyer meeting

President Donald Trump defended his eldest son, saying on Thursday that "most people" would have taken the June 2016 meeting with the Russian lawyer that has enveloped Donald Trump Jr. in controversy this week.

"I think from a practical standpoint, most people would have taken that meeting. It’s called opposition research or even research into your opponent," Trump said during a press conference in Paris. His son said he took the meeting because he was told the lawyer, who has been alleged to have ties to the Kremlin, had information that could be detrimental to Trump’s 2016 rival Hillary Clinton.
