Trump had earlier claimed that the meeting was about the adoption of Russian children, reported Reuters, a statement contradicted by Trump Jr, who said that the objective was to gather information on Clinton.

"I had bad information at that time and made a mistake in my statement", Sekulow said on ABC's "This Week".

Trump tweeted Sunday that recent reports suggesting the president is concerned about his son Donald Trump Jr.'s legal fate were a "complete fabrication", before offering a new interpretation of his son's June 2016 meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.

The meeting has come under intense scrutiny from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating whether members of the Trump campaign coordinated with a Russian effort to sway the 2016 election in the Republican's favour.

Sekulow added that he has "no knowledge" of whether federal investigators are probing one of the attendees of the meeting, Donald Trump Jr., even as critics charge that the secretive discussion might have run afoul of campaign finance law.

The president also doubled down on his attacks against the media, saying they are the "Enemy of the People".

Email released by Donald Jr. himself showed he had been keen on the meeting because his father's campaign was being offered potentially damaging information on Clinton.

"On Saturday, Trump Jr. had offered a different explanation for the meeting, focusing exclusively on the adoption issue". The President's lawyers had previously offered the special counsel written answers to obstruction questions and limiting the interview to matters before his presidential inauguration, which are largely confined to collusion.

Others have said the meeting could provide clues to a broader conspiracy by Trump officials with Russians.

But on Sunday, Trump tweeted the meeting discussed information and getting dirt on his election opponent, Hillary Clinton. He initially denied he met with any Russians on behalf of the campaign and now he admits the meeting was to get damaging information about Clinton.

CNN reported last month that Michael Cohen, the president's long-time personal lawyer and self-described "fixer" was willing to tell Mueller that Trump did know about the meeting in advance.

Why is the Trump Tower meeting controversial?

The admission is a significant departure from Trump's previous statements regarding the controversial meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer. But I don't like the war declaration because it will lead to something that none of us really want, ' he said.
