President Trump defended the timing of his decision to fire FBI Director James Comey in an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt on Thursday.
“Did you think through the optics of the way this would look?” Holt asked Trump.
“I never thought about it,” Trump said.
“I’m not looking for cosmetics,” the president asserted. “I’m looking to do a great job for the country. I’m looking to create jobs. I’m looking to create strength and security. I’m looking to have strong borders.”
