Trump: The Swamp is ‘Worse Than I Thought’
President weighs in on corruption during rally Monday night in Manchester, New Hampshire
President Donald Trump admitted that the Washington D.C. 'swamp' was far worse than he imagined while running for president in 2016.
Speaking at a political rally Monday night in Manchester, New Hampshire, the president spoke about the corruption within the “swamp.”
“That swamp is much worse than I thought when I was out here innocently campaigning,” Trump said.
“That swamp is a dirty swamp … you have some evil, dirty, horrible, people.”
But Trump vowed to continue fighting to drain the swamp as he promised while campaigning in 2016.
“We are draining that sucker, slowly but surely, with your help,” he said.
On Monday, Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani claimed witnesses are ready to "name names" in an investigation into Hunter Biden and Ukraine corruption.
Giuliani told Jesse Watters that his aim was to make sure the President emerges as "totally vindicated" following the ' failed impeachment proceedings against him.
"I want to prove what happened," Giuliani said.
"Because I believe if we prove what happened, he will be totally vindicated."
Last year, Trump released a video exposing former Vice President Joe Biden's ties to Ukraine's top prosecutor being fired while investigating Hunter Biden's company.
The short ad also took aim at Democrats and accomplices in the establishment media who are flipping the scandal and using it to call for President Trump's impeachment.
Trump posted the video to Twitter with a caption that simply reads: "I AM DRAINING THE SWAMP."

Meanwhile, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) revealed that Attorney General William Barr had "created a process" to vet information regarding allegations against Biden's son Hunter Biden.
Graham said Sunday that AG Barr is currently vetting any info provided to the Justice Department by Rudy Giuliani regarding Hunter Biden and possible corrupt dealings in Ukraine.
Speaking on CBS's "Face the Nation," Sen. Graham said the Justice Department has not been ordered to investigate the Bidens but is vetting all intelligence about Ukraine.
"The Department of Justice is receiving information coming out of Ukraine from Rudy to see," Graham said, revealing that he spoke with Barr prior to his interview.
In October last year, Trump defended his public and private requests for foreign governments to probe the Bidens.
Trump said his commitment to end corruption on Twitter:
“As President, I have an obligation to end CORRUPTION, even if that means requesting the help of a foreign country or countries,” Trump wrote.
