White House: Trump was 'right' to fire Comey from Federal Bureau of Investigation

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said on Tuesday she was unsure if President Trump would read former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's book, What Happened and called the book 'sad'.

Bannon believes the firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey by President Donald Trump was the biggest mistake "maybe in modern political history".

President Trump is expected to make a visit to Florida this week due to Irma.

"That's not the president's role", Sanders said, according to Politico.

Trump abruptly fired Comey in May, initially explaining his decision as a response to Comey's handling of an investigation into Hillary Clinton's email server.

Trump's decision to oust Comey was condemned on both sides of the aisle, and even by members of his own staff. Steve Bannon, Trump's former chief strategist who has since left the White House, said it was possibly the biggest mistake "in modern political history" in an interview on 60 Minutes.

Huckabee Sanders says Clinton "ran one of the most negative campaigns in history" and says it's "sad" the last chapter of her public life will be defined by selling books with "false and reckless attacks". She said legal action should be considered for what she described as Comey's fireable actions.

Her comments were in response to former chief strategist Steve Bannon, who told CBS News' "60 Minutes" that Trump's decision to fire Comey was perhaps the worst mistake in "modern political history" because it paved the way for the special counsel's Russian Federation investigation.

Some of the people Bannon could focus on include outspoken Arizona Senator Jeff Flake, an avowed critic of Donald Trump. Trump was 100% right to sack Comey, she insisted, suggesting the Department of Justice might want to investigate Comey's in-office rannygazoo.

"I think that that has been shown in the days that followed that the president was right in firing Director Comey".

White House officials cast the Florida trip as part of his overall effort to build national unity in the wake of natural disasters.
