Trump clarifies what he meant by "Drain the Swamp"

Trump ran his campaign on the promise he would "Drain the Swamp". Almost everyone assumed he meant he was going to get rid of the rich, corrupt politicians in office in DC.

But we were wrong.

In a press conference Wednesday, Trump clarified his remarks:

"The corrupt media is lying about me saying I promised to remove the corrupt from DC. " he started, blaming the media.

"I'm going to bring jobs back to swamp drainers, getting rid of those awful wetlands" he finished.

In short, Trump clarified he meant to bring jobs back to swamp drainers, NOT get corrupt politicians out of office.
