White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced during Monday’s press conference, which was banned form airing, that President Donald Trump was sending “thoughts and prayers” to the families of the dead U.S. sailors and victims of the terrorist attack in London.
The blacked out press conference began with Spicer talking about the seven dead sailors and the victims who were attacked outside a London mosque that left one person dead.
“The president has been made aware of the attack in London,” Spicer reportedly said.
Spicer tried to defend the media blackout by pointing out that the president spoke on camera for a few minutes on Monday, even though he didn’t take any questions.
Spicer also claims that Trump has no apprehension about the job the Justice Department is doing, including Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Trump for obstruction of justice.
The press secretary also said that it’s “possible” that the recordings of Trump’s conversation with former FBI Director Sean Spicer may be revealed by “the end of the week.” Spicer also insisted that Trump has the power to dismiss Mueller if needed.
“If you serve at the pleasure of the president, you serve at the pleasure of the president,” he said. “That is a fact.”
