As much as President Donald Trump has ridiculed media as "the enemy of the people", rebuking "fake news", here is some real news from Newsweek showing he is a friend of the media: President Trump "is taking more questions than any president in history".

Trump told The Associated Press earlier Tuesday night that he had chosen Cipollone, a partner at the Washington law firm Stein Mitchell Cipollone Beato & Missner, to take the position. They would say that in the old days that if you got the support of a president or if you've got the support of somebody it would be nice to have, but it meant nothing, zero.

The president has been campaigning aggressively for some Republican candidates, with a string of rallies held in recent weeks.

Trump says Cohen's claim was "totally false".

"Well, I think we have to find out what happened first", Mr Trump said.

McGahn reportedly told officials he was responsible for curbing the president's more excessive measures, including his desire to fire Mueller from the investigation and reinstating Attorney General Jeff Sessions, The New York Times reported.


McGahn was the general counsel for Trump's presidential campaign and his transition team, before joining the administration as White House counsel in January 2017.

Should Democrats retake the House of Representatives, the White House counsel would bear the brunt of congressional subpoenas and investigations, according to The Times.

On the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, Trump defended his son Donald Trump Jr. for a Trump Tower meeting with a Kremlin-connected lawyer offering damaging information about Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Notably, Cohen, who according to his lawyer changed his party registration to Democrat last week, would call out and refute anything that he considers to be lies from Trump, this person said. There are "scientists on both sides of the issue", Trump said.

"But what I'm not willing to do is sacrifice the economic well-being of our country for something that nobody really knows". Cohen worked for Trump for years.

"The new motto is Keep America Great", Trump said.
