United States President Donald Trump believes he has the power to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the White House press secretary said on Monday afternoon.
An ABC News reporter asked: “Does the president believe he has the power to fire special counsel Robert Mueller? Does he believe that’s within his power?”
“He certainly believes he has the power to do so,” secretary Sarah Sanders said in response.
She was later asked the same question by another reporter aiming to clarify, where she responded with the same answer.
Sanders did not release any further details on the U.S. response on the alleged chlorine attack in Syria’s Douma.
