President Donald Trump indicated he won’t fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, whom he met with on board Air Force One on Monday.
The president was asked by a reporter if he had plans to fire Rosenstein, and he answered no.
“I have a very good relationship with him, we’ll see,” Trump told the group of reporters gathered outside his presidential helicopter prior to his meeting with Rosenstein.
Rosenstein joined Trump on a trip to Florida for a chance to talk after their previously-planned meeting was postponed due to the Kavanaugh hearings.
The deputy attorney general was under fire late last month over alleged comments that he considered wearing a wire into the Oval Office and tried to corral cabinet members into overthrowing the president by invoking the 25th Amendment.
This, of course, led to speculation that the president was fixing to fire Rosenstein.
But that won’t happen anytime soon, according to Trump, who also said that Rosenstein promptly talked to the president after his alleged comments made the news.
