‘They’re fighting over who loves me the most’: Trump downplays White House turmoil in latest interview
Donald Trump on Tuesday characterized the White House turmoil that’s come to define his young presidency as “White House stuff, where they’re fighting over who loves me the most.”
Trump made the comment in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, where he continued to stoke concerns over the status of special counsel Robert Mueller.
“I have no comment yet, because it’s too early,” Trump said of Mueller’s staying power as special counsel. “But we’ll see. We’re going to see.”
Trump also declined to say whether he has confidence in Jeff Sessions, the attorney general he’s been publicly lambasting all week. In a Tuesday morning tweetstorm, Trump questioned why Sessions has yet to investigate Trump’s former rival Hillary Clinton—statements widely criticized by members of the president’s own party.
