Russian Federation probe 'divides' the country

"Director Comey was very unpopular with most people", Mr Trump claimed, adding that he thought his firing would be a "bipartisan decision".

Lavrov says media reported that Trump told him "terrorists are capable of stuffing laptops, all kinds of electronic devices, with untraceable explosive materials", information he says the administration revealed with the laptop ban.

However, Trump told NBC News last week that he would have fired Comey "regardless" of what the Justice Department said. Mueller on Wednesday evening was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as special counsel to oversee the Justice Department's investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the US presidential election and related issues.

In his earlier Twitter posts, Trump criticized the naming of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as a special counsel by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, an official he himself appointed. And I think it's a very, very negative thing.

He did not offer any evidence of such acts in his reference to former Democratic President Barack Obama and former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

President Donald Trump is assailing the naming of a special counsel as "the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history!" "In the meantime, I will never stop fighting for the people and the issues that matter most to the future of our country".

Afterward, Republican Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters that "everything he said was that you need to treat this investigation as if it may be a criminal investigation".

Trump is responding to the appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to lead a probe of allegations that Trump's campaign collaborated with Russian Federation to sway the election.

The man tasked with investigating possible meddling by Russian Federation in the 2016 presidential election - a probe that will likely encompass President Trump's recent firing of FBI Director James Comey - once called Comey "one of the finest people I've ever met".

After Trump ousted Comey, the White House first said the president did so because of a Justice Department memo criticizing the Federal Bureau of Investigation chief's performance.

He said he respected the special counsel appointment but also said it "hurts our country terribly".
