After a heated press conference Friday afternoon, "FOX News Sunday" host Chris Wallace grilled WH chief of staff Mick Mulvaney about comments he made about President Donald Trump seeking out a quid pro quo with Ukraine.
"Again, that’s not what I said, that's what people said I said," Mulvaney replied. "Here’s what I said… there were two reasons that we held up the aid."
"Go back and watch what I said before that," Mulvaney asked.
"I believe that anyone listening to what you said in that briefing room can come to one conclusion," Wallace said before going to the tape.
"I hate to go through this but you said what you said," Wallace stated. "You said what you said, and the fact is, after that exchange with [ABC News White House correspondent] Jonathan Karl, you were asked another time why the aid was held up. What was the condition for the aid? And you didn’t mention two conditions, you mentioned three conditions."
Mulvaney again denied that that was what he meant and the two went back and forth on the subject for several minutes.
"After the briefing and all the blowback and the criticism, did you ever offer or think to offer the president your resignation?" Wallace asked.
"No, absolutely not," Mulvaney replied.
"Was that ever discussed?" Wallace asked.
"Absolutely, positively not," Mulvaney stated.
