Picture: AFP Washington. US President Donald Trump on Sunday complained that the “witch hunt” against him had spread worldwide, a day after The New York Times reported that senior members of his campaign staff met with advisers from the Mideast who offered to help the then-candidate win the 2016 presidential election against Hillary Clinton, The Times of Israel writes.
