Capitol Report: Here’s the topic Trump wants to discuss rather than his sharing sensitive information with Russia

H.R. McMaster didn’t discuss, at all, industrial production, so the president tweeted about it.

Donald Trump had another topic in mind to discuss while his national security adviser was in front of a frenzied White House press corps trying to explain why the president revealed sensitive information to Russia.

Industrial production.

This is what Trump tweeted during the McMaster briefing:

‘U.S. Industrial Production Surged in April’ https://t.co/S0Z4SEIRhi

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 16, 2017

As that story, and MarketWatch’s own take explain, industrial production was indeed strong in April, jumping 1% for the biggest monthly jump in more than three years.

There was a bounceback in the production of cars and light trucks, though auto production is still lagging levels of late 2016.
