Trump says he won’t fire Mueller during impromptu presser outside White House
President Donald Trump bookended his weekend with a second impromptu conversation with reporters on the White House lawn on Sunday night.
In it, he said that things with the special counsel Bob Mueller’s investigation are “not looking good,” but denied he has any intention of firing Mueller, as some Democrats have warned.
“No, I’m not,” Trump said when asked if he’s contemplating terminating Mueller and thereby quashing the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
.@POTUS was just asked on the South Lawn about special counsel obtaining transition emails. "Not looking good, not looking good."
I asked if he is considering firing Robert Mueller, he answered: "No, I'm not."
