Twitter reacts to the US president referring to his son as a 'high-quality person'
US President Donald Trump on Tuesday praised his eldest son’s “transparency” and called him a "high-quality person" after disclosures about the latter's meeting last year with a woman he was told was a Russian government lawyer who might have "very high level and sensitive information" on Hillary Clinton.
"My son is a high-quality person and I applaud his transparency," Trump said in a brief statement read to reporters by White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders.
