President Donald Trump said his busy schedule makes it "not possible" for his staff to speak at the podium with "perfect accuracy."
Trump on Friday defended the struggle by his administration to come up with a consistent timeline and rationale for the abrupt firing of FBI Director James Comey this week.
Trump tweeted, "As a very active President with lots of things happening, it is not possible for my surrogates to stand at podium with perfect accuracy!"
He added, "Maybe the best thing to do would be to cancel all future 'press briefings' and hand out written responses for the sake of accuracy???"
The president's advisers said Trump fired Comey in response to a recommendation by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, then said Trump had planned to fire Comey regardless. That statement was issued in writing.
Trump also used his morning Twitter rant to blast the "fake media" again, charging that the stories about collusion between his campaign and Russians was "fabricated."
