Conway: Trump Has More to Focus on Than ‘Phony Russia Collusion’

Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said President Donald Trump was focusing on policy, not special counsel Robert Muller’s probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Conway said, “Look at what just happened last week while basically everybody was focusing on the nonsense, the VA choice legislation, $5.2 billion to make sure that care for our veterans is not interrupted. This has been a big problem for so many of them, and they can access private care, and there will be reimbursement for that if they can’t find quality care timely through the VA which most say they can. The right to try legislation passed. Dodd-Frank, what is that? That helps consumers make more independent choices for themselves in the marketplace.”

She continued, “He is getting Josh Holt back. This is the second time in 17 days we have had Americans brought back here, reunited with their families. The economy could not be better. All-time low unemployment numbers among African-Americans, Hispanic. And 18-year low among women and the economy just continues to grow. The tax cuts are in place. Regulation is lower. And this president is on the brink, again, of bringing conversation and coordination between North Korea and South Korea for the first time in 18 years. A North Korean official will be coming to America on the way to New York.”

She added, “So much is happening that has nothing to do with this phony-baloney, talking about the 2016 election. May I say one thing? Every time people talk about this phony Russia collusion, the word collusion doesn’t have legal significance — every time it’s written by responsible people, every time they talk about this, they are talking about the 2016 election. And so we don’t want to talk about the 2016 election. We work here. The president is focused on the 2018 election. He is assembling a team for 2020. Every single day he is passing policies that positively affect American lives. I will talk about that all day long.”
