When asked if he had tapes of his discussions with former FBI director James Comey, President Donald Trump said that he would answer that question “in the very near future.”
In a joint press conference with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis, Donald Trump faced reporters’ questions on Comey’s Thursday testimony about Trump’s alleged involvement with the Russia investigation.
“I’ll tell you about that maybe sometime in the very near future,” Trump said when ABC News’ chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl asked if tapes of their discussions existed.
Trump tweeted in May that Comey “better hope that there are no ‘tapes’ of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press.”
Several reporters shouted follow-up questions on the existence of the tapes after Trump’s non-answer.
“You’re going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don’t worry,” Trump said seconds after insisting he was “not hinting at anything.”
