( - During a joint press conference with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg, President Donald Trump said that there’s collusion between the Democrats and the Russians more so than between the GOP and the Russians.

A reporter asked Solberg, “President Trump has said that the investigation into Russian collusion makes our country ‘look very bad,’ and he said this morning that ‘the world is laughing at our stupidity.’ So my question to you is, are you laughing at the Russian investigation?”

“I think that it’s up to every political system and countries to scrutinize and discuss their own political agenda in their countries, and I respect that very much, and that this is an issue for American politics. I’d just like to say that it has impacted also in Europe,” Solberg said.

“I think all European countries who have had elections this year has been looking into will there be any type of tampering of others. We concluded after our election that we could not find any proof of any and tried to put an emphasis on that from countries outside Norway. I think it was a very Norwegian election with Norwegian participants,” she said.

Trump then interjected, saying, “I will say this: there is collusion, but it’s really with the Democrats and the Russians far more than it is with Republicans and the Russians, so the witch hunt continues.”
