"Russia & the world is laughing at the stupidity they are witnessing".

The investigation has two spearheads: special counsel Robert Mueller, operating under the aegis of the justice department (executive branch); and congressional committees (legislative branch).

The FBI, as well as the intelligence committees of the US Senate and House of Representatives, have been handling the investigation into Russia's alleged interference into the 2016 US presidential election.

At some stage, Mueller is likely to submit his report to Congress.

Trump also said Wednesday he would never sign an immigration bill unless it includes money for his proposed wall along the U.S. Mexico border.

Thank you for your feedback.

Sources familiar with the matter previously told NBC News that Trump's legal team was preparing for the possibility off an interview with Mueller's team, including written responses to questions in lieu of a formal sit-down.

Trump denied any collusion on his campaign's part but instead accused Democrats of colluding with Russian Federation.

Norway Prime Minister Erna Solberg, who appeared with Trump at the joint press conference, seemed to back away from a question about whether she was "laughing at the Russian Federation investigation". "But when they have no collusion, and nobody's found any collusion at any level, it seems unlikely that you'd even have an interview". Democrats are running for office and trying to say things.

"It's a Democrat hoax that was brought up as an excuse for losing an election", the President said. "Without the wall, it all doesn't work", he insisted.

He claimed he cared very strongly about the environment, but justified his decision to pull the United States out of the Paris accord by describing it as "a bad deal".
