Donald Trump says he has finished answering questions into alleged Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential campaign. The US leader told reporters he had personally answered the questions “very easily”, but that they had yet to be submitted to Robert Mueller’s team. Mr Mueller has been looking into allegations of collusion between Mr Trump’s campaign and Russia since 2017. Mr Trump strongly denies any collusion, calling the probe “a witch hunt”.
