Trump responded to a shouted question about why he doesn't fire Mueller. Quick transcription:


"I think it's a disgrace what's going on. We'll see what happens..Many people have said you should fire him. Again, they found nothing and in finding nothing that's a big statement because you know the person who is in charge of the investigation -- you know all about that - Deputy Rod Rosenstein he wrote the letter very critical of Comey.


Well I turned out to do the right thing (firing Comey). If you look at all of the things he's done and the lies and you look at whats going on at the FBI..turned out I did the right thing. But it turns out he also signed the FISA warrant -- Rod Rosenstein whose in charge also signed the FISA warrant and he also wrote the letter that fired Comey and he was right about that. He was absolutely right about that."
