Trump Tweets Response To Paul Manafort Being Indicted

Donald Trump has responded to the indictment of Paul Manafort on 12 counts.

Manafort served for a time as the campaign manager for the Trump campaign, though the 12 count indictment appears focused mostly on Manafort’s pre-campaign work as a lobbyist.

Here’s how Trump responded on Twitter:

As usual in the polarized world of U.S. politics, both sides are attempting to claim victory.

The Democrats are saying the indictment of Manafort vindicates their accusations about the Trump campaign, while Republicans say Manafort’s indictment is about matters unrelated to the Trump campaign and shows there was no collusion.

With further indictments expected, only time will tell.
