US President Donald Trump has said it is “unlikely” he will be interviewed by Robert Mueller – the man investigating possible ties between the Trump presidential campaign and Russia.
There was no collusion, Mr Trump said, adding, “I’ll see what happens.”
In June 2017, Mr Trump said he would “100%” be interviewed under oath.
He has consistently denied that his campaign worked with Russia to undermine his opponent Hillary Clinton, calling the accusations a “witch hunt”.
Earlier this week the US media reported that Mr Trump’s lawyers were in talks with the Mueller investigation to set a date for an interview.

“When they have no collusion – and nobody has found any collusion at any level – it seems unlikely that you would even have an interview,” Mr Trump told reporters on Wednesday.
