If the Mueller report exonerates Trump, why block release?

First it was Attorney General Bill Barr, who has been fighting tooth and nail to not let the full Mueller report be released. Now, we have President Trump, who is using executive privilege to block the full Mueller report from being released.

For someone who is 100 percent innocent and supposedly exonerated by this report, Trump has never acted like it when it pertains to the Mueller report. If you are absolutely not guilty of any wrongdoing, then you allow the full Mueller report to be released. The longer this lingers on, it will just continue to make the president look guilty of wrongdoing.
