WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump, speaking at a Conservative Political Action Conference, said on Saturday his opponents were “trying to take me out with bullshit”.

“Unfortunately, you put the wrong people in a couple of positions and they leave people for a long time that shouldn’t be there and all of a sudden they are trying to take you out with bullshit, okay,” Trump said.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is preparing to submit to U.S. Attorney General William Barr a report detailing his findings in the investigation into Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election and any links to the Trump campaign.
