When Ivanka sat on his chair at the G20 Summit in Germany, U.S. President #Donald Trump defended her from critics and used the opportunity to hit at Hillary Clinton. So it is not surprising that the billionaire came to the defense of son Donald Jr. who just tweeted an email chain that suggested there was a collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia in the 2016 U.S. election.

On Twitter, the president claimed his eldest son is a great person who loves his country. This was to promote Donald Jr.’s 10 p.m. interview with Sean Hannity, a pro-Trump Fox host. Through a tweet from the deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee, Trump again extolled his son who is in hot water for meeting a Russian lawyer and soliciting dirt about Clinton.

Netizens react to high-quality description

As expected, netizens made fun of Trump’s use of the phrase “#high quality” to describe Donald Jr. Jon Lovett tweeted that “high-quality” refers to wood flooring and not his son. Andy Richter said it is the president’s way of complimenting himself.

Kaivan Shroff added that the president equates his son’s high quality with Trump steaks or an education from Trump University.

For Vann Newkirk II, a person whose father calls him a high-quality person should be worried because that child will not get the house in his father’s last will.

Unacceptable behavior

For Sen. John McCain, who was a presidential nominee in 2008, it was wrong for Donald Jr. to meet with Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer. He said people who surrounded him in his campaign would not be inclined to meet someone who would offer political dirt on his rival for the presidency, particularly his sons. “’Cause my sons – they’re in the military. You now, they’d probably be court-martialed,” McCain said, the Weekly Standard reported.

He agreed with what his Senate colleagues, such as Maine Sen. Susan Collins and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who suggested that Donald Jr. should testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee. A testimony would give the committee a chance to learn more about the whole issue, McCain said.

Texas Sen. John Cornyn, however, is quick to state that there is no evidence of collusion.

By interviewing all the witnesses, he is confident the committee “will get to the bottom of it.” Sen. Richard Burr, chairman of the committee, does not see a deconfliction issue if the Senate were to question the president’s son through the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller. The Republican committee chairman, however, said, “I don’t see anything criminal here. Do you?” #Russian investigation
