Trump also reiterated that he would build the wall on the USA border with Mexico to stop illegal immigration, said that members of the notorious MS-13 street gang were "going very, very fast" and emphasized that American voters are "seeing through" the negative news reports about him and his administration. "I mean, he gave her a free pass like nobody's ever, ever gotten a free pass", Trump said, referring to the FBI declaring it found no new evidence against Clinton after reopening its investigation of her private email server, adding, "they should have liked him".

Mr. Trump said "there was no collusion" with Russian Federation, but said he wanted "to get to the bottom, if Russian Federation or anybody else is trying to tamper or play with our election". Pirro asked Trump that, if he was sure that he and his campaign were clean, why not have an independent commission "get it out of the White House" so the case gets closed.

Trump addressed questions over the timing in his interview with Pirro, arguing that there was "no right time" to fire Comey. "But if I did on January 20, that would've been the big story as opposed to the inauguration. I think it's a good idea". "I was thinking about it then", Trump said. "I think loyalty to the country, loyalty to the United States is important". Trump said he would allow the Congressional investigations to take their time because "I don't want it ever to be a question again", that there was no collusion. "They're asked 100 questions, or 50 questions, or 20 questions - if they get one out of 50, just a little bit off, 5 percent, 10 percent, 20 percent, it's - the next day, it's a front page story in every newspaper". I don't know what these networks would do, they're going to start to cry.

Although Mr. Trump admitted the Democrats' reaction to Comey's firing could be boiled down to "look, it's politics", he said the Democrats said "we get some political points, we'll go against Trump".

Also expected are some tweaks in the Notification bar, native support for app badges and settings menu. However, it looks like Google is now looking to the future, as a new OS has been found in the works.

Trump didn't help tamp down speculation that Spicer could be sent packing when he refused to say that he would be staying in the job.

"First of all, you have a level of hostility that's incredible and it's very unfair", Trump said in the interview that aired Saturday.

Trump earlier Friday issued a cryptic threat to Comey amid a flood of leaks to the media from the White House.

The interview on Fox comes after a week of intense scrutiny of Trump following his unexpected dismissal of Comey.
