    In an exclusive interview with NBC's Lester Holt, President Donald Trump said that when he decided to fire former FBI director James Comey, he said to himself: "You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story. It's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won."

    Trump fired FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday, setting off a wave of backlash that has included Democratic calls for a special prosecutor in the investigation.

    President Donald Trump is tweeting at comedienne Rosie O'Donnell as he defends his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.

    Trump on Thursday retweeted a December message from O'Donnell that read "FIRE COMEY." He replied: "We finally agree on something Rosie."


    Trump's abrupt decision to fire Comey earlier this week has come under criticism, particularly from Democrats who question why the president removed him in the middle of an FBI investigation into Trump associates' contacts with Russia.

    Trump and O'Donnell have publicly feuded in the past, with Trump making derogatory comments about O'Donnell's looks and weight.
