White House aides say President Trump became so frustrated with news reports claiming he admitted the FBI was investigating him for obstructing justice that he has repeatedly started screaming at the television.
Staffers and associates of Trump’s said he has become “increasingly angry over the investigation, yelling at television sets in the White House carrying coverage and insisting he is the target of a conspiracy,” the Associated Press reported Friday.
The White House denied a tweet Trump sent Friday morning was intended as confirmation of the probe into his actions.
“The president was not confirming the investigation,” a source told the Washington Examiner. “He was referencing the Washington Post story from Wednesday night based on anonymous, illegal leaks.”
Trump had tweeted, “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt.”
