The president's remarks followed several weeks of speculation that Trump meant to remove Mueller, USA Today reported.

"Probably makes consultant fees from all over the place, who knows, I don't know, but I thought it was pretty tough stuff to wake him up, perhaps his family was there". "I've been reading about it from you people".

"We're working with him", Trump said.

"I want them to get on with the task, but I also want the Senate and the House to come out with their findings".

John Dowd, Trump's attorney, underscored Trump's support for Mueller in a comment August 8. "He asked me to share that with him and that's what I've done". The president has discussed both the possibility of firing Mr. Mueller and his concerns that the investigation will undermine his presidency.

Mueller's investigation has gathered pace over recent weeks.

Trump also responded to the news that the FBI raided the home of his former campaign manager Paul Manafort as part of the investigation.

Investigators sought tax documents and foreign banking records from Mr. Manafort, who is under investigation for his business dealings, his attendance at a meeting between campaign officials and Russians, and whether his work for the Ukrainian government violated the Foreign Agents Registration Act.

Mueller has added Hillary Clinton donors to his team, too, fueling more speculation that Trump might have a chip on his shoulder about the whole thing.

Trump was asked about the raid on Manafort's house August 10. "No, I'm not dismissing anybody", he replied during a press conference with reporters in Bedminster, New Jersey on Thursday.

He expressed disappointment that the Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted a surprise search of Manfort's residence in the wee hours, saying, "they do that very seldom. I was very, very surprised to see it".
