Trump continued to characterize the probe as being led by "18 Angry Democrats" in a "by the numbers" video posted to Twitter. The video also complained that the probe cost $30 million and took 675 days while resulting in a finding of "0 collusion" and "0 obstruction." 

Earlier Saturday, Trump also criticized the report, which he said was "was written as nastily as possible" by "true Trump Haters."

Trump has lashed out in a series of tweets over the past two days against the 448-page report released by the Justice Department in partially redacted form on Thursday.

Trump's 2020 reelection campaign on Thursday began running Facebook ads declaring that the report proves "NO COLLUSION," "NO OBSTRUCTION" and "COMPLETE EXONERATION."
