Trump suggests that the fall in energy prices is proof that it has never been a Russian agent to upset the explosion of Twitter

Donald Trump suggested that the fall in energy prices in the United States is proof that he was never a Russian secret agent.

"Gas prices are falling in the US because President Trump has liberalized energy and now we are producing much more oil than ever," wrote the US president on Twitter.

"But this is bad news for Russia, why should President Trump do something like this, have you thought he worked for the Kremlin?" Mr Trump added sarcastically.

The tweet appeared as part of the president's angry reaction to the revelations that the FBI started an investigation to find out if he was secretly working on behalf of Russia.

The New York Times Last week, law enforcement officials launched the probe following the dismissal of former Trump's director of FBI James Comey in May 2017.

Trump also shared a tweet from Geraldo Rivera, a lawyer and frequent host of Fox News, who said that any investigation by the FBI on the president said "more about anti-Trump prejudices" in the Justice Department than on Trump.

An internal review by the Justice Department found that there was no evidence that an investigation into the ties of Trump's campaign with Russia was motivated by political bias.

In other tweets, Mr. Trump moved to close the US government, again accusing the Democrats of the continued closure of a number of federal agencies.

"Nancy and Cryin’ Chuck can end the Shutdown in 15 minutes. At this point it has become their, and the Democrats, fault," Mr Trump tweeted, referring to Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leaders in Congress.

It comes despite repeated attempts by Democrats to reopen the government. Mr Trump has refused to sign any bill that would do so until he received $5.7bn (£4.4bn) in funding for construction of a border wall across the US-Mexico border.

In a now-deleted tweet, Mr Trump also announced he was "getting ready" to address a farm convention in Tennessee.

"See you in a little while," he said, before it emerged the convention was in New Orleans, Louisiana.
