President Donald Trump on Tuesday said it was "very unfair" that the Senate Intelligence Committee wanted his son, Donald Jr., to testify again.

"You know it’s really a tough situation because my son spent, I guess over 20 hours testifying about something that Mueller said was 100% okay. And now they want him to testify again. I don’t know why. I have no idea why. It seems very unfair to me," Trump told reporters outside the White House.

The president also refused to say whether he still had confidence in his FBI director, Christopher Wray. Trump said it was "ridiculous" that Wray wouldn't call the FBI's efforts to investigate the Trump campaign "spying."
