Trump Won’t Fire Rosenstein

President Trump doesn’t plan to fire Rod Rosenstein. Trump said on Monday he has no plans to let the embattled deputy attorney general go, despite many months of bad blood between the two. The president’s comment came after the two spent time together on Air Force One, speaking for 45 minutes. The meeting was the much anticipated climax to weeks of speculation that Trump would can Rosenstein, who oversees the Robert Mueller probe and has been the subject of many a Trump tweet criticizing the investigation.
