"Think of it," Trump tweeted amid a battle over Mueller's report. "I became President of the United States in one of the most hard fought and consequential elections in the history of our great nation."

"From long before I ever took office, I was under a sick & unlawful investigation concerning what has become known as the Russian Hoax," he continued in a separate tweet. "This never happened before in American history, and it all turned out to be a total scam, a Witch Hunt, that yielded No Collusion, No Obstruction."

"This must never be allowed to happen again!" he added

The comments from Trump come weeks after Mueller's report on his investigation into Russia's interference and whether the president committed obstruction of justice was released in a redacted form. 

Mueller's investigation did not uncover evidence to conclude that a conspiracy took place between Trump's 2016 campaign and Moscow. However, the report noted that Mueller could not make a conclusive determination in regard to whether Trump obstructed justice. 

Democratic lawmakers have vowed to further investigate Trump on matters related to collusion, among other things. But the Trump administration has been resistant to these efforts.
