Donald Trump Jr. Thursday said he has "always said I will be reasonable" about testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee, but is frustrated by a call for him to reappear for more testimony because he's been "fully cleared" after going through "30 hours of testimony nonsense."

"The Mueller report cites my congressional testimony, cites my Senate testimony," President Donald Trump's oldest son told Fox News' "Fox and Friends." "It cites my Twitter feed."

He added that "no one has spoken to these guys more than I have," but the "19 leftist lawyers on that committee ― who would love nothing more than to get a guy like me and certainly my father — they didn't do anything."

Trump also complained that Intelligence Committee Chairman Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., is "one Republican too weak to stand up to the Democrats" by agreeing to recall him for testimony.

Also on Thursday, Trump complained that Democrats are not dealing with his father in good faith.

"First, it was collusion," he said. "It failed miserably. NOw there was a coverup...they are upset that he is upset that they perpetrated the greatest hoax on the American people in this country, so you can't deal with someone like that."

Trump added that his father has a track record of success, and Democrats "don't want him to rack up more wins."

Despite the impasse on fixing the nation's infrastructure — including a White House meeting that ended before it began when the president walked out Wednesday — Trump said he'd love to see his father work on issue.

"He is a builder," said Trump. "That is what he does better than anything."
