Hannity begins his first "question" to Trump: "I'm just going to open it up to you to go wherever you want with this."
Trump says he wasn't going to watch the testimony at all but then thought about it and watched a little bit and then "watched more than I wanted to" and then watched in the afternoon.
Trump falsely claims the US has "just become" the world's top oil and gas producer, and so Russia surely shouldn't want him. According to the US government's energy information agency, it took the top spot in 2012. It was crude oil in particular in which it became #1 under Trump.
"This was treason," Trump falsely claims of the Mueller investigation. He also says it was "high crimes," using a phrase from the impeachment section of the Constitution.
Asked what he'd say to the biased media, Trump says "the media has become totally unhinged, has "lost all credibility" and is "the enemy of the people."
Trump says the notion of collusion with Russia was a terrible thing to say about someone who loves America as much as he does.
Trump refers again to "Russian bloggers," "a lot of bloggers, bloggers in Russia," who were discussed in the Mueller report. It was hackers. Russian hackers. No bloggers.
The president: "We have some very, very bad people in government that would be willing to do bad things and for bad reasons."
Trump says he hasn't thought about possible pardons connected to the Mueller investigation.
Trump calls the Russia investigation an "illegal takeover" and a "coup attempt." It was not illegal and was not a coup attempt.
Trump is reciting his usual nicknames about the leading Democratic candidates. He adds that although Biden is sleepy, Mueller's performance made him "look like a dynamo."
A day after North Korea tested missiles, Trump amends his usual boast about "no missile testing," saying this time: "They really haven't tested missiles other than, you know, smaller ones."
The "interview" is done. That was short and relatively calm by the standards of Trump-Hannity phone calls.
One more false claim: Trump said again, of North Korea, “we’re getting the remains back.” The effort has been suspended because North Korea has stopped cooperating.
