After sowing doubts, Trump backs North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mutual defense under charter


After Comey was sacked, Trump had tweeted, "James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!"

Collins, a member of the Senate intelligence committee, which is investigating Russia's interference in the 2016 election, said Comey's motivation "may have been a good one".

Trump said on Friday the United States is committed to Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation charter, which requires each member of the alliance to come to the defense of any other.

"Well, I'll tell you something about that maybe sometime in the very near future", he said.

Curry smiled and went over to greet Beckham, a friend of LeBron James' who has worked out with the Cleveland superstar. When Cleveland's locker room opened after the game, trainer Mike Mancias was stretching James over a medicine ball.


Trump also twice declined to confirm the existence of White House recordings of the conversations. He painted Trump as a chief executive dismissive of the FBI's independence and made clear that he interpreted Trump's request to end an investigation into Flynn, his former national security adviser, as an order coming from the president.

The leaders will face the White House press corps at a news conference in the Rose Garden after their talks.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director said Trump's private comments urging him to drop the probe into former national security adviser Michael Flynn led him to tell his Justice Department colleagues they needed to be careful.

President Donald Trump says he and his supporters "are under siege" but "will come out bigger and better and stronger than ever". "He's a leaker", Trump said of Comey. "You're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer".

While Comey said Trump had lied about him, Trump didn't use that exact terminology in return on Friday.

"WOW, Comey is a leaker!"

But Comey's testimony about the President has darkened clouds hanging over the White House. And he said multiple times that he choose to take detailed notes about his interactions with Trump because he anxious the White House and President would lie about them if he didn't.

"And I think you saw today the overwhelming majority of the intel members, Democrats and Republicans, feel that Jim Comey is credible".
