  • Rosenstein to fly with Trump to Florida on Monday, official says

I'm going to straighten it out and straighten it out fast, " the president said in Orlando in remarks to the International Association of Chiefs of Police at their annual convention.

Trump faces mounting pressure from the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump's visit to the City Beautiful came days after a U.S. Senate Committee voted to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court.

"So, while resources are always welcome, the idea of what President Trump is talking about is not only not welcome - it's antithetical to what we're working on, and that is about a strong, pro-active, professional police department".

When the Times report broke, Rosenstein adamantly denied the claims, saying: "I never pursued or authorized recording the president, and any suggestion that I have ever advocated for the removal of the president is absolutely false".

President Donald Trump said Monday he has no plans to fire Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who has been facing an uncertain fate for more than two weeks.

As he left the White House for Orlando, Trump was asked by a reporter if he had any plans to fire Rosenstein. As he walked out of the executive mansion that day, Kelly made sure to join him and shook his hand in view of photographers.

Michael Kors to take control of Italy's Versace
Versace had revenue of €686m euros and returned to profit in 2017, according to figures provided by the company. Donatella herself owns 30 percent of the holding, with the remainder in the hands of her brother Santo.

The President confirmed Monday that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein will travel aboard Air Force One en route to the convention. They also say terminating either Justice official would be Trump's opening move toward eventually firing Mueller or shutting down his investigation.

And House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told reporters late last month that he hoped the deputy AG "stays in place".

White House officials have told The Post that Trump is unlikely to fire Rosenstein before the midterm elections in November. Despite protests, Trump backed him the whole time.

"Just look at what is now being exposed in the Department of Justice and the FBI", Trump had said at a rally, "look at what's going on".

It was not immediately clear whether Trump and Rosenstein talked about the controversy during their 45-minute-long conversation on the flight, where Kelly and another Department of Justice official, Ed O'Callaghan, were also present.

The Times report, though, fueled speculation over whether Trump would fire Rosenstein, but the president signaled at a press conference on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly last month that his "preference would be to keep him, to let him finish up" the Russian Federation investigation.
