Trump slams 'worst witch hunt in American history'

US President Donald Trump has slammed a looming criminal investigation into his businesses as the worst politically motivated “witch-hunt” in American history.

His comments came after A New York Grand Jury issued the Trump organization with a subpoena for the president’s tax returns as part of a wider investigation into "protracted criminal conduct".

But President Trump dismissed the allegations linking them to motivations behind the failed Mueller investigation.
"This is just a continuation of the witch hunt. It's Democrat stuff," Mr Trump said.

"They failed with they failed with Congress. They failed at every stage of the game. "This has gone on for three or four years. The witch hunt has gone on long enough.”

During his daily briefing, the President also expressed his mistrust of mail-in ballots, suggesting the Democrats were "using COVID-19" to enforce "fraudulent" mail-in ballots in the Presidential election.

"Absentee ballots are but the universal mail-in ballots have turned out to be a disaster," he said.

"You can have two ballots, you can harvest - take thousands of ballots, put them together and dump them on someone's desk after a period of time.

"This is something that's so messed I don't think the post office is prepared to handle something like this." The President revealed the nation's coronavirus mortality rate had declined by up to 85 per cent since April as he touted a sixth vaccine trial.
"As a result of improvements, we've made in treatment for Americans over the age of 18, the virus has declined 85 per cent from its April peak," he said.

"On vaccines, last week we announced a $ billion partnership with Sanofi and GSK to purchase and produce 100 million doses of their coronavirus vaccine."

This is the sixth vaccine candidate the Trump administration has proactively supported, with two vaccines now in the final stage of clinical trials and a third likely to begin phase three "almost immediately".

"We're on pace to have a vaccine available this year," Mr Trump said.

"It's logistics. It's all about logistics."
