White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer refused to answer queries about whether the President recorded a conversation with fired FBI Director James Comey, the media reported. Trump said. "Again, the story that there was collusion between the Russians & Trump campaign was fabricated by Dems as an excuse for losing the election".

He learned of the news while speaking with Federal Bureau of Investigation employees in Los Angeles, as headlines flashed across the TV screen that Trump had let him go; Comey reportedly thought it was an elaborate prank.

As Krishnamoorthi correctly points out, there have been "varied and divergent statements" coming from the Trump White House regarding the firings of both former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former FBI Director James Comey.

Trump was asked what should be done about his press team being unable to keep up with him. Unless I have them every two weeks and do it myself.

Excerpts of the interview, taped Friday, were released just hours after a morning Twitter rant in which the erratic executive said he might cancel the White House daily press briefing and indicated the information his press office was providing to reporters wasn't necessarily true.

Like many administrations, the relationship between Trump and the press has been tense.

The missile test was carried amid China's vociferous protests over THAAD interceptor missiles in South Korea. Our positions should be judged not for what Trump proclaims but by the reality of China's activities.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer wrapped up his brief interview with Fox Business from the White House grounds late Tuesday night and then disappeared into the shadows, huddling with his staff behind a tall hedge.

Sanders said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has strong bipartisan support and is "independent enough" to carry out the investigation. "Sarah Huckabee is a lovely young woman".

"Will he be there tomorrow?" she pressed.

He says Comey was scheduled to appear at Thursday's hearing and that his absence cost the committee an opportunity to get at the truth, at least for a day.

Spicer was back to answering questions Friday about Comey's firing.

Earlier Friday, Trump tweeted that "it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with ideal accuracy" and that "the best thing to do" might be to cancel future press briefings in favor of hand-written responses. And the big question, one source said, is whether it's temporary or permanent.
