Trump was also asked about the Russian uranium scandal. Of the 15 minutes the president spent with the media, only 30 seconds were devoted to the topic.

"You told me last week you thought that the uranium sale to Russia was one of the big stories of the decade. Three Congressional committees are now looking at that, we haven't heard you comment on it since those investigations were launched.

"I think the uranium sale to Russia and the way it was done, so underhanded with tremendous amounts of money being passed. I think that is Watergate modern age.
