PALM BEACH, Florida (AP) — President Donald Trump is passing up a chance to say whether he will fire special counsel Robert Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Trump says there’s been speculation that he would get rid of the two men for months but “they are still here.”

But Trump also says he wants the ongoing investigation into possible collusion between his presidential campaign and Russian officials “done with.”

Trump said Wednesday he has cooperated with Mueller’s investigators and his team has turned over more than a million documents.

The president adds that he hoped the probe was “coming to an end.”

Trump spoke alongside Japanese Prince Minister Shinzo Abe at a news conference at his Florida resort.
