“It’s my hope that honest journalists within the media have the courage to hold these now fully debunked truthers accountable and treat them with the scorn and ridicule that they so deserve,” Trump’s eldest son said in a statement Sunday afternoon.

“Sadly, instead of apologizing for needlessly destabilizing the country in a transparent attempt to delegitimize the 2016 election, it’s clear that the Collusion Truthers in the media and the Democrat Party are only going to double down on their sick and twisted conspiracy theories moving forward,” he added.

Trump Jr. had faced scrutiny over a 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Russian nationals and Trump campaign officials. On Friday, after Mueller delivered his report to the Justice Department, Trump Jr. had blasted those who speculated about whether there was collusion as “Collusion Truthers”.

According to the summary of Mueller’s findings from Barr’s office, the probe found no evidence of collusion with Russia. Mueller also made no conclusion as to whether Trump obstructed justice over the course of the investigation.

The White House in a statement called it a "total and complete exoneration."
