President Trump holds news conference with Romanian president

Comey testified he had nine one-on-one conversations with Trump - and detailed each in memos just after they met for fear that the president would subsequently lie about their interactions. He hinted again that he had tapes of his private talks with the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief that would disprove Comey's account, but declined to confirm the existence of any recordings. "He's a leaker", Trump said of Comey.

"You're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don't worry".

Standing in front of a twisted beam taken from the ruins of the World Trade Center after the September 11 attack on the US, Trump spent most of the speech imploring North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries to pay their fair share for the common defense.

This proves for the 8,457 time why Trump doesn't need to be on Twitter.

"I didn't say that", Trump said. "I know no president has ever asked that question, but I do".

Trump's aides have repeatedly dodged questions about whether conversations relevant to the Russian Federation investigation have been recorded, and so did the president. He said that Qatar needs to do more and they need to do it faster.

After the meeting, the two presidents held a common press conference in which Donald Trump praised Klaus Iohannis for leading the fight against corruption in Romania and for the country's efforts to increase its defense spending.

He adamantly denied Comey's claims that he asked him to end the FBI's investigation into national security adviser Michael Flynn.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director said Trump's private comments urging him to drop the probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn led him to tell his Justice Department colleagues they needed to be careful.

The Romanian President also said that the stronger partnership between the USA and Romania will lead "very soon" to an enhanced economic exchange.

"I would be glad to tell him exactly what I just told you", Trump said.

Comey also revealed that he'd orchestrated the public release of information about his private conversations with the president in an effort to further the investigation. "No plausible case. We must distinguish crimes from" political "sins".

Kasowitz also maintained that the testimony made clear that Trump "never, in form or substance, directed or suggested that Mr. Comey stop investigating anyone". On May 3, in response to Sen. A person close to Trump's legal team has said a complaint would be filed with the Justice Department. Comey arranged the leak May 15 after he was sacked and after the May 3 hearing, so it would not be in direct conflict with that testimony.
