“Well, he is very very good friends with (former FBI Director James) Comey, which is very bothersome,” the President said in a Fox News clip that aired Thursday. “We’re going to have to see.”
“Look there has been no obstruction. There’s been no collusion. There has been leaking by Comey,” Trump added. “But there’s been no collusion, no obstruction, and virtually everybody agrees to that. So we’ll have to see.”
In other comments in the full interview on Fox, which aired Friday morning, Trump reiterated how ineffective Democrats and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi have been at winning elections. His remarks came on the heels of Democrat Jon Ossoff’s loss to Republican Karen Handel in the special election for Georgia’s 6th Congressional District seat Tuesday — the most expensive House race in US history.
“I hope she doesn’t step down. It would be a very, very sad day for Republicans if she steps down,” Trump said. “I would be very, very disappointed if she did. I would like to keep her right where she is because our record is extraordinary against her, but we will see what happens.”
“There has been a lot of talk about her stepping down,” he said. “We will have to see what happens.”
“They are also four good guys and are four friends of mine,” Trump said. “I think they will probably get there. We will have to see. You know, health care is a very difficult situation.”
“I have been here only five months, people saying, ‘Where is the health care?’ Well, I have done in five months what other people haven’t done in years,” Trump added. “People have worked on health care for many years. It’s a very complicated situation from the standpoint you do something that’s good for one group but bad for another.”
