PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) — (4/21/19) President Donald Trump on Easter morning offered condolences to the people of Sri Lanka, continued his attacks on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and attended service at the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea near his Florida estate.

The president tweeted happy Easter to his many followers earlier in the morning, adding “I have never been happier or more content because your Country is doing so well.”

But the tweet was followed by several others in which he sought to frame the report as vindication of him, though he was clearly bothered by its details. Soon after tweeting about his happiness, he was tweeting again, calling the report “nothing but a total ‘hit job.'”

The president also tweeted about the terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka, saying “we stand ready to help!” Explosions at churches and hotels in that nation killed more than 200 people. No one has claimed responsibility for the attack; Sri Lankan officials are blaming religious extremists.

The president attended service at the Episcopalian church with first lady Melania Trump and daughter Tiffany. It’s the same church where he and the first lady were married in 2005.

“Happy Easter everybody, have a great day,” Trump said upon his arrival at the church. “A lot of great things are happening for our country.”
