President Trump is responding to former campaign adviser Roger Stone’s vow not to testify against him.
The president quoted Stone on Twitter Monday, who had just recently made the claim. He went on to suggest Stone was essentially stating he will not be forced by — what he claims is — a rogue and out of control prosecutor to make up lies and stories.
The president then said it’s nice to know that some people still have guts.
“I will never testify against Trump.” This statement was recently made by Roger Stone, essentially stating that he will not be forced by a rogue and out of control prosecutor to make up lies and stories about “President Trump.” Nice to know that some people still have “guts!”

Stone is considered to be a potential target in the special counsel’s probe due to his alleged contact with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
However, the 66-year-old recently denied having any contact with Assange and asserted he has not been contacted by Mueller or his team.
