President Donald Trump said at the White House on Monday evening he had a "very nice talk" with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, announcing he does not plan to fire him.

"We just had a very nice talk," Trump told reporters after stepping off Marine One following a return flight to Washington, D.C., from an event in Florida. "We actually get along. Really good talk.

"I'm not making any changes. You would be the first to know."

It has been rumored Trump might fire Rosenstein because of the ongoing Russia investigation that is looking at whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. Rosenstein is overseeing the probe, which is being led by special counsel and former FBI Director Robert Mueller.

The pair flew together to Florida on Air Force One and talked things over.

"I think we'll be treated very fairly," Trump said regarding the Russia probe. "I think everybody understands there was no collusion. There's no Russia. It was all made up by the Democrats, they're the ones who colluded with Russia."

Trump was also asked about musician Taylor Swift, who expressed her desire over the weekend to vote for Democrat Phil Bredesen over Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., in Tennessee's Senate race.

"Marsha Blackburn is doing a very good job in Tennessee," Trump said. "She's leading now substantially, which she should. She's a tremendous woman, I'm sure Taylor Swift doesn't know anything about her.

"Let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25 percent less now."
