Donald Trump speaks from White House Cabinet room (CNN/screen grab)

President Donald Trump on Tuesday refused to say whether he wants to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.


The question came during a "working lunch" with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. As Trump's media team was asking the press to leave the room, a reporter posed a question about Mueller's future.

"Do you want Mr. Mueller fired?" the reporter said clearly.

"Thank you, thank you," Trump remarked, refusing to even make eye contact with the questioner.

Trump, however, did respond to a question about Tuesday's school shooting in Maryland.

"Terrible, terrible thing," he replied.
