It had been 22 days since President Donald Trump last took questions from media members. And in a press conference one day after former FBI Director James Comey‘s Senate testimony, Trump finally did so.
It was a press briefing with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis in the Rose Garden at the White House, and Trump took questions from media members afterward.
As expected, those questions centered around Comey’s bombshell testimony June 8, in which he said the Trump administration had lied and defamed him and the FBI.
In the first exchange, Trump was asked about the “tapes” that he said he may have from a meeting with Comey at the White House. Trump responded by saying “I’ll tell you about that maybe sometime in the near future.”
The question came from the Washington Times’ Dave Boyer.
Watch a video of the exchange below:
Trump reiterated that he will speak about the tapes “in a very short period of time” later on in the press conference.
