President Donald Trump’s meeting with the deputy attorney general may or may not happen as originally planned, but Trump says he’d prefer not to fire Rod Rosenstein regardless.

Trump said Wednesday in New York that the planned meeting Thursday might be delayed because it would come the same day as the Senate hearing for Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.
