Trump's remarks came in his first interview since Mueller appeared before the House Judiciary and House Intelligence committees to testify on his more than 400-page report, which detailed his investigation into Russia's election interference and possible obstruction of justice by Trump.

Mueller's performance in his back-to-back hearings drew widespread criticism among those who questioned his grasp of his own investigation.

While many Democrats publicly praised his testimony before the House panels, some privately expressed a sense of disappointment in Mueller's at times shaky performance.

Trump has repeatedly attacked Mueller's investigation as a "witch hunt" and sought to cast doubt on the report's findings. Mueller did not charge Trump with obstruction, but has asserted repeatedly that the president was not exonerated by his investigation.

Trump, meanwhile, has sought to undermine Biden's endurance as a top-tier presidential contender, casting the former vice president as "sleepy."

“You have Elizabeth Warren, formerly known as Pocahontas — and I’m sure that’ll come out because that’s a tough thing for her to withstand, I believe, because her whole life is a fake,” he said, referring to her past claims to Native American ancestry.
