"Look at what they tried to do to me for three years. I mean, these clowns tried to put me in jail for three years because I took an unsolicited phone call," he said. Trump was referring to phone calls to blocked numbers that took place both prior to and after the infamous June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between campaign officials and Russians.
"You know, the double standard is pretty sick, Brian. I've talked about it for a long time. We can play one way or we can play another way, but we've got to be playing the same game," Trump said.
"The reality is this: If Donald Trump Jr. flew on Air Force One with my father, the president, to China and came back with $1.5 dollars -- not $1.5 billion, just $1.5 dollars -- we'd solve the fake news media problem because their heads would explode.
"If Donald Trump Jr. had a no-show gig on a corrupt Ukrainian oil company while my father was in charge of the issues over there... minor details. I've never been in energy or oil. Minor details. I don't speak Ukrainian.

"I had the media camped out in front of my apartment for two years," he said. "They don't even try to find this guy to even get a comment."
"It's not fair. It's not a level playing field. And, so we have to fight fact accordingly."
