In his first interview since the completion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, President Donald Trump spoke at length on his reaction to the investigation and continued to say he has been exonerated by Mueller.

Speaking by phone to Fox News host Sean Hannity during Hannity's primetime program, Trump's 45-minute interview also addressed health care, the border wall and the Trump administration's stance on Israel and the rise of anti-Semitism.

But the Mueller Report dominated the conversation, with Trump saying the White House is "very happy" about the results of the investigation.

"It's gone on for a long time, almost since the beginning of my term, and if you look at it, we've done so much despite that. It was a cloud. It was a cloud that most people didn't believe, fortunately," the president said. "They spent more than 30 million dollars, hundreds of interview with people, in some cases very innocent people were put through the wringer, millions of document pages. Millions and millions of document pages and after that there was no collusion, there was no obstruction. It was such a ridiculous thing that happened."

Trump added that the Mueller investigation started in part to "dirty cops" and "bad FBI folks."

"What they did to our country was a terrible, terrible thing," the president said. "You can never allow this to happen to another president. This can never, ever happen to another president. This was an embarrassment to our country, Sean."

Trump continued to say that people had their lives ruined "over something that should have never taken place" as there was no crime committed.

"You are only allowed to do this legally if there's a crime. There was no crime. They've all admitted it," he said.

Later in the interview, Trump said Russia has nothing on him. If they did, he said, "it would have come out a long time ago. Probably a long time before I ran because they would have been better off, much better off." The president went on to cite what his administration has done for allowing offshore drilling and gas prices, saying that Russia did not want competition in that area. "Hillary wouldn't have let you drill; there'd be no oil, there'd be no gas."

"Russia would much rather have Hillary than Donald Trump; I can tell you that right now," he added, saying that Russia was "for and against both, not just one way."

Hannity went on to ask Trump how he felt when individuals appointed to Mueller's investigative team were all Democratic donors and if he had been concerned the investigation would reflect a biased result.

"Were you surprised at all considering the team that he picked in this particular case? It seemed pretty partisan Democrat. I thought it was extraordinarily unfair to pick that biased a team," Hannity said.

"Didn't seem to be biased, it was biased. It was tremendously anti-Trump. It was Never Trumpers and Anti-Trump I think in every single instance," Trump replied. "Most of them contributed to [Hillary Clinton's] campaign. I mean It was shocking to see it. I know one thing, I had nothing to do with Russia but I wasn't exactly when I looked at the team that was assembled, I wasn't exactly sure what they were, you know — I mean maybe they took a sentence from here and a sentence from there, I had no idea. I know one thing I was the most innocent human being and they all said it."
