The controversial meeting was held just the day after Trump had fired FBI Director James Comey over the “Russian thing,” the president later revealed to NBC News.
The New York Times reported Friday that Trump called Comey a “nut job” in his meeting with Lavrov and Kislyak. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off,” the Times quoted Trump as saying.
