  • Rosenstein to fly with Trump to Florida on Monday, official says

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and President Donald Trump planned to travel to Florida together on Air Force One on Monday, a week-and-a-half after the two were scheduled to discuss Rosenstein's reported comments past year concerning the president's fitness for office and an offer to secretly tape conversations with him, The New York Times reported on Monday.

The President told reporters on Monday that he has no plans to fire Rosenstein.

Once again focusing on Chicago crime, President Donald Trump on Monday said the city should implement a "stop and frisk" policy and get out of what he called a "terrible" agreement between the ACLU and the police department made after a study showed the stops targeted minorities.

Trump faces mounting pressure from the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is looking into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential election.

"It looks like another big one, but we've handled them well", the president said.

Rosenstein said the report was "inaccurate".

Rosenstein is joining Trump for an address to the annual convention of the International Association of Police Chiefs.

There has been widespread speculation that Trump might oust Rosenstein, a frequent target of Trump's tweeted criticism, after a New York Times report that he had made remarks about Trump's fitness for office and offered to record conversations with him.

"I didn't know Rod before, but I've gotten to know him", Trump said at the White House. "I know the law enforcement people in Chicago and I know how good they are, they could solve the problem if they were simply allowed to do their job and do their job properly", he said.

The president's trip comes as the White House continues to revel in the successful confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

"The press wants to know, 'What did you talk about?'" Trump said at the start of his speech after he thanked Rosenstein for being there and noted the intense media interest. Upon landing, Rosenstein was seen smiling and appeared at ease as he walked down the front stairs of Air Force One alongside Trump's chief of staff, John Kelly.

Although Trump has at times criticized his deputy attorney general, he has reserved his sharpest verbal attacks for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused from the Russian Federation investigation in March 2017 because of his involvement with the Trump campaign. Trump similarly said he'd prefer to leave him on the job.
