Spicer refers Russia-related queries to Trump's private lawyer

Trump wants to respond more aggressively to allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and questions about investigations of possible ties between Trump's campaign and Moscow.

Aside from Kasowitz, the White House is considering bringing on old campaign hands to help manage the fallout.

In a statement, Dubke said it had been his "great honour to serve President Trump and this administration".

Spicer said he thinks the president "is very pleased with his team", but he added, "Ultimately the best messenger is the president himself".

Kushner allegedly proposed using Russian diplomatic facilities for the discussions, apparently to make them more hard to monitor, according to a report.

"I think the president and a small group of people know exactly what he meant", Spicer said.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer calls on a member of the media during the daily press briefing at the White House, Tuesday, May 30, 2017, in Washington.

"I went too far", she said in a second video. But he declined to say whether he's been contacted by Trump or anyone else about a return engagement.

Bossie told "Fox & Friends" that the Trump administration has reached out to him but hasn't offered him a job yet.

Tommy Vietor, who was a spokesman for President Barack Obama, said former Obama press secretary Robert Gibbs once gave him this advice: "The first rule of spin is that it has to be believable."

Griffin, who helped with CNN's New Year's Eve coverage, has apologized, saying that the brief video was "too disturbing" and wasn't amusing.

"Regardless of whether you agree or disagree with President Trump, please tell me if each person does more to help or more to hurt the president when they speak on behalf ofthe administration".

Trump's original tweet, which was sent out shortly after midnight on Wednesday morning, simply read, "Despite the constant negative press covfefe".

The tweet immediately went viral and became one of the president's more popular posts. Rather than simply saying that it was a typo, Trump tweeted, "Who can figure out the true meaning of "covfefe"???"

Dictionary publisher Merriam-Webster checked in with an eye-rolling tweet about people looking up "covfefe" on its website.

Over the weekend, White House National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn - who was the second-in-command at Goldman Sachs before joining the White House - declared the president's economic development deal with Saudi Arabia to be unlike anything he had seen in his 30 years in business.

Fresh off Trump's first official trip overseas, his administration is looking for ways to respond more aggressively to allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and revelations of possible ties between Trump's campaign and Moscow. They call it a giant and arrogant step over the line - perhaps even treasonous - for a private citizen to try to set up covert communications with a hostile power like Russian Federation, particularly after USA intelligence agencies accused Moscow of trying to interfere in the 2016 election to help Trump.
