President Donald Trump said he had a “good talk” on Monday with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the Justice Department official in charge of the federal investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, and has no plans to fire him. There has been widespread speculation that Trump might fire Rosenstein after a New York Times report that he had made negative remarks about Trump and offered to record conversations with him. Rosenstein traveled with Trump on Air Force One to Orlando on Monday, and Rosenstein was seen smiling as he walked down the front stairs of Air Force One alongside Trump’s chief of staff, John Kelly. Rosenstein oversees Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Russia denies interfering and Trump says there was no collusion between his campaign and Moscow.
