On Thursday morning, President Donald Trump celebrated the release of the report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Minutes after Attorney General William Barr announced that the report provided no evidence that Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia or obstructed justice in the investigation, Trump celebrated the news.

“They’re having a good day, and I’m having a good day too,” Trump told White House attendees at an event involving the Wounded Warrior Project.

“No collusion, no obstruction,” Trump declared. “There never was, by the way, and there never will be. And we do have to get to the bottom of these things. This should never happen … to another president again. This hoax. It should never happen to another president again.”

He celebrated the report with a Game of Thrones-style tweet.
