Fiery 'I've Been Fighting Him Half My Life': Trump Blasts NY Dem Nadler's Demand for Mueller Report
President Donald Trump said Tuesday that while working as a real estate developer in New York City, Rep. Jerrold Nadler was a routine foe, as the president blasted Congressional Democrats over their latest demands.
Trump rejected the Manhattan Democrat's call for an unredacted copy of the Mueller report, and scoffed at the fact that the Judiciary Committee chairman may approve a subpoena for the documents.
"There's no collusion, and the attorney general and deputy attorney general [concluded] that there is no obstruction... Now we're going to start this process all over again? It's a disgrace," Trump said when asked about the House Judiciary Committee chairman by Fox News' John Roberts.
"Jerrold Nadler has been fighting me for half my life in Manhattan -- and I was very successful, thank you," Trump said with a smile.
In one notable dispute, as the Wall Street Journal reported, Nadler stripped from Congressional spending bills key subsidies that would have helped Trump, which resulted in the bombastic billionaire making negative remarks about the lawmaker's weight and intellect.
Trump blasted Nadler and Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff of California for trying to play politics and not seek the best interests of the people.
"We're going to start this process... again because Jerry Nadler wants to start it? Because Schiff wants to start it?" Trump said.
Trump again reiterated how he and Nadler were often at odds over the Trump Organization's intent to develop properties in the city.
In 1998, Rep.Jerry Nadler strongly opposed the release of the Starr Report on Bill Clinton. No information whatsoever would or could be legally released. But with the NO COLLUSION Mueller Report, which the Dems hate, he wants it all. NOTHING WILL EVER SATISFY THEM! @foxandfriends

Trump said that it is "a disgrace" that Nadler is seeking the Mueller report after slamming Republican calls for the Starr Report in the late 1990s.
"Jerry Nadler was on the opposite side of [that] and he thought it was a disgusting, terrible thing to think of giving [out] the Starr report."
Trump said the relevant statute was changed after Starr's report was to be sent to Congress. The Mueller report was sent to the Department of Justice in accordance with department regulations.
