President Trump responded to reporters at a White House luncheon when they asked about his feelings on Robert Mueller being appointed to run the special counsel investigation into possible Russian collusion with the Trump administration during the 2016 election by saying: "It also happens to be a pure excuse for the Democrats having lost an election that they should have easily won because of the Electoral College being slanted so much in their way.
