President TrumpDonald John TrumpThorny part of obstruction of justice is proving intent, that's a job for Congress Obama condemns attacks in Sri Lanka as 'an attack on humanity' Schiff rips Conway's 'display of alternative facts' on Russian election interference MORE in a new interview touts the accomplishments his administration has made since he assumed office.

"The mood in the White House is fantastic," Trump told Reuters on Wednesday.

"We have done more in five months than practically any president in history."


Trump pointed to progress made against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and touted job numbers in the U.S., adding that the White House is "functioning beautifully."

"The stock market has hit a new high. Job numbers are the best they’ve been in 16 years. We have a Supreme Court judge already confirmed. Energy is doing levels that we’ve never done before," he said.

"Our military is doing well. We’re knocking the hell out of ISIS, which [former President] Obama wasn’t. There’s not a thing that we’re not doing well in. The White House is functioning beautifully, despite the hoax made up by the Democrats."

His comments come after his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., released a chain of emails earlier this week detailing his conversations about setting up a meeting last year with a Russian lawyer who he was told had damaging information on Democratic nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonThorny part of obstruction of justice is proving intent, that's a job for Congress Nadler: I don't understand why Mueller didn't charge Donald Trump Jr., others in Trump Tower meeting Kellyanne Conway: Mueller didn't need to use the word 'exoneration' in report MORE.

The information “would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” read one of the emails from Rob Goldstone, who acted as an intermediary to set up the meeting.

“This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump,” Goldstone wrote.

President Trump has defended his son and continues to decry the investigation into Russian meddling as a witch hunt.
