President Trump said Thursday that “the real Russia story” involves reports that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama allowing Moscow to gain control of much of the U.S. supply of uranium.

“That’s your real Russia story, not a story where they talk about collusion, and there was none,” Mr. Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. “Your real Russia story is uranium, and how they got all that uranium, a vast percentage of what we have.”

The Hill reported Wednesday that the FBI investigated Russian nuclear industry officials engaging in bribery and kickbacks before a 2010 deal that Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Obama approved, giving Russia control of more uranium.

“If the mainstream media would cover the uranium scandal, and that Russia has 20 percent of the uranium, for whatever reason, and a lot of people understand what those reasons may be, I think that’s your Russia story,” Mr. Trump said.

“The problem is that the mainstream media does not want to cover that story, because that affects people that they protect. It’s a disgrace that he fake news won’t cover it. It’s so sad.”
