President Trump has found a new obsession to justify his efforts to pressure a foreign country to probe his political rival: corruption.“I don’t care about politics, I don’t care about anything! I care about corruption!” he shouted from the White House lawn on Friday morning, repeating the word 30 times throughout the exchange with reporters– just in case it didn’t sink in the first 29.
“Everything to me me is about corruption, we want to find out what happened with 2016, and as you know there’s a lot of work going on with that. I don’t care about Biden’s campaign, but I do care about corruption,” he said. “His campaign, that’s up to him. Politics, that’s up to them. I don’t care about politics. Politics, as I think I made clear, and yesterday somebody asked me a question and I give an answer. But always in the form of corruption. What I want to do — and I think I have an obligation to do it, probably a duty to do it, corruption. We are looking for corruption.”
