“With all of this turmoil, particularly last week, has the president at any time thought about stepping down before or now?” Ryan asked during a recent press briefing.
“No, and I think that’s an absolutely ridiculous question,” Sanders fired back.
“It’s not a ridiculous question,” Ryan snapped while Sanders attempted to move on to another reporter.
Ryan’s question follows one day after the FBI raided the office of Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.
The president dealt out a heated response to the raid Tuesday morning, announcing that “attorney-client privilege is dead!” while once again branding special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation into Russia’s election interference “a total witch hunt!”
“It’s a real disgrace,” Trump explained to reporters at the White House on Monday afternoon after the news of the raid first broke. “It’s an attack on what we all stand for.”
“We’ll see what happens. … Many people have said, ‘You should fire him,’ ” the president stated when questioned if he was considering removing Mueller.
