It’s clear that special counsel Robert Mueller wants to interview President Donald Trump, but as MSNBC’s Katy Tur notes, the president’s willingness to do so has shifted repeatedly.
“Does President Trump want to talk to Robert Mueller?” the host asked during a Thursday afternoon segment. “Well, it depends on when you ask.”
Tur then rolled a supercut of Trump’s flip-flopping responses when being questioned about whether he’d speak with Mueller. On June 9, 2017, he said he’s “100 percent” interested, but on January 10, 2018, with crossed arms, he said “we’ll see what happens.”
On January 24, as it became clearer that the special counsel was zeroing in on him, Trump said he was “looking forward” to being interviewed under oath — only to have White House counsel Ty Cobb walk back the comment, saying the president spoke too soon in his preparations for his trip to Davos.
