The news comes as Trump continues to attack special adviser Robert Mueller who is probing Russia's interference in the 2016 election.

"Without the fake Russia Witch Hunt, and with all that we have accomplished in the last two years (Tax and regulation fees, Judges, Military, Veterinarians, etc.) My approval score would be 75% instead of 50% reported by Rasmussen It's called presidential molesty! "Trump tweeted Thursday.

And in a tweet last month, him he has declared"Have you ever seen a more crime-seeking investigation?" At the same time, Mueller and the Angry Democrats do not even look at the atrocious, and perhaps subversive, crimes committed by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats – a total disgrace! "
