US President Donald Trump supports the criticised Justice Minister William Barr. It is under fire because of the adjustment of a criminal demand at the request of Trump.
Last week Barr said in an interview that the constant twitter flow from Trump makes him impossible to work.
“I do make his work more difficult indeed, but the Justice Minister is a man with a lot of integrity,” said the president.
Last week Trump urged Barr via Twitter to lower the sentence of more than seven years in prison for Trump’s former adviser Roger Stone. That happened shortly after that.
The four prosecutors then gave the case back and more than 1100 former employees of the ministry asked Barr to resign.
Trump said on Tuesday that he would not stop tweeting, despite Barr’s criticism. “Social media are important to me. It gives me a voice.”
