Trump did not mention Comey during his speech at Liberty University. All are former high-level employees who worked for Mr. Trump over a span of three decades. Fifteen percent of respondents said that they have no opinion about the ousting.

Mr. Comey's allies also quickly made clear they would defend him against attacks from Trump, including disputing the president's assertion that Mr. Comey told Mr. Trump he was not personally under investigation.

The White House disputed the account.

Trump said Comey "wasn't doing a good job" when he was sacked. One former employee said he had signed a nondisclosure agreement.

The Washington Post compiled a run-down of instances where people have written or spoken about moments where they believed their conversations with Trump were being listened in on.

Comey has not publicly discussed any conversations he has had with Trump.

It was unclear whether Mr. Trump was referring to a permanent replacement or an interim director.

Trump on Tuesday fired FBI Director James Comey.

Comey's ouster Tuesday, while his FBI led an investigation into possible co-ordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, raises the potential that a man long defined by his independent streak, willingness to buck protocol and even a flair for the dramatic could resurface to publicly rebut White House efforts to smear his reputation. "I won't talk about that". His recordings became prime evidence during the Watergate investigation that ultimately led to his resignation. But he wound up creating new headaches for the White House, including with an apparent threat to Mr. Comey. He was the US attorney for the Southern District of NY from 2005-2008.

Japan says N. Korea missile fell into sea
One recent test by the North, held in early March, saw three missiles fall provocatively close to Japan, sparking alarm in Tokyo. The White House released a statement at 10:44pm Saturday in regards to the latest North Korean missile launch.

"I actually said today, let's not ever do any more press briefings", Trump told Fox News. Trump's comments demonstrated his striking deviation from that practice.

Trump, however, said it "wouldn't be a bad question to ask".

Mr. Trump didn't generally tell the other party that he or she was being recorded, the former employees said.

Administration officials initially said Comey was terminated on the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein, but Trump contradicted that message himself on Thursday by saying that he was going to fire Comey regardless of Rosenstein's opinion.

Pratt Hotel Corp., which owned the Sands casino in Atlantic City, filed a lawsuit against Mr. Trump's casino company in 1989, claiming it had interfered with Pratt's attempts to buy a construction site next to the Trump Plaza casino.

The president is reported to have asked Comey whether he could be loyal to him during a dinner meeting in February shortly after his inauguration. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) in a phone conversation. Trump and Weidner, in order to demonstrate that Mr. Weidner had wrongly described the conversation, according to Mr. Weidner.

"That's, frankly, offensive, " Spicer said. When Trump then pressed for "honest loyalty", Comey told him, "You will have that", the associates said. Theoretically, though, he'd be able to say more than former DNI James Clapper, who said the FBI never informed him of their investigation.

Trump reiterated his view that reports about collusion with Russian Federation were "fabricated".
