Trump suggests he might drop daily press briefings

"President Donald Trump is considering?making changes to his communications team, which he blames for failing to contain the controversy surrounding his firing of former FBI Director James Comey, according to multiple administration officials", the journal reported.

If any such tapes exist, the problem is that, because of suspected collusion between WikiLeaks and the Kremlin, the tapes may never be heard - at least not on this side of the Atlantic.

Later, however, they said that President Trump had planned to fire Mr Comey regardless.

Critics saw the taunt as a threat to Comey to keep his mouth shut about what was discussed.

Trump reportedly turned against Comey after the director admitted to the Senate that the FBI is investigating Trump campaign aides and said there is no evidence supporting Trump's claim that President Barack Obama wiretapped him in the run-up to the election.

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.

Sanders also said that she does not think Comey's firing will have any affect on the ongoing investigations.


But as the response grew more critical, Trump ordered his press staff to get out and defend him.

"Will he be there tomorrow?" she pressed.

"Look, it may just be that the president is trolling the press corps and saying "Work yourself into a frenzy about all this" and turns out it's nothing", continued Wallace.

Trump said in a series of tweets Friday morning it is "not possible" for his staff to "stand at podium with flawless accuracy".

"Sarah Huckabee is a lovely young woman", he told Pirro. Under the law, recordings made by presidents belong to the people and can eventually be made public. She said Trump would "never even suggest the expectation of personal loyalty".

"Doing away with briefings would reduce accountability, transparency, and the opportunity for Americans to see that, in the USA system, no political figure is above being questioned", Jeff Mason, WHCA president said in a statement. Unless I have them every two weeks and do it myself.

Explaining his decision, Trump said: "James Comey will be replaced by someone who will do a far better job, bringing back the spirit and prestige of the Federal Bureau of Investigation".
