President Trump returns from World Economic Forum

President Donald Trump is refuting reports that say he tried to fire special counsel Robert Mueller during the summer of 2017. Sources tell FOX News that President Trump did say he could fire Mueller if he wanted to, that he has the authority to do it, but was told by White House lawyer Don McGahn that firing Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference into the 2016 Presidential election, could backfire for the administration.

"There is no evidence of collusion," says White House senior communications adviser Mercedes Schlapp. "There is no evidence of wrongdoing."

President Trump mentioned immigration policy during his speech at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland. His plan would create a path to citizenship for 1.8 million 'Dreamers' and establish a $25 billion trust fund for a border wall.

"The wall will send a message to the world that we enforce our laws here in America," said Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"That plan is a campaign to make America white again," said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. "It's a plan that says over 50 percent of the current legal immigration will be cut back."
