President Trump was interviewed by a rash of reporters on Sunday evening when one of them asked if he is considering firing Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Trump, who was returning from Camp David, responded, “No, I’m not.”
Trump’s answer comes amid a wave of speculation that the president is considering firing Mueller.
The president was also asked to comment about the Trump transition team emails that were obtained by Mueller as part of the probe. “Not looking good, it’s not looking good. It’s quite sad to see that. My people were very upset about it,” Trump said.
“I can’t imagine there’s anything on them frankly because as we’ve said there’s no collusion, there’s no collusion,” he confirmed.
A lawyer for Trump’s transition team said on Saturday that the emails were obtained illegally.
