7:08 am
plays. i understand the process well. here's what i'll tell the president. there's no scenario where you can end this investigation, the mueller investigation, through some political intrigue, and survive. that's the end of you. the only person in america that can clear donald trump is mueller. >> do you think he'd fire attorney general sessions today if he could? >> i think he wants an attorney he can have a working relationship with, and to those in my business who say you're stuck with jeff sessions. i like jeff sessions. but how smart do you have to be to understand this is not working. >> let me ask you about the investigation. you said that at the end of the day, if there is collusion between the trump campaign and the russians, that will be it for me. anything else will be just noise. >> yes. >> you said you have faith in mueller. >> i do. >> if mueller finds something else and it's not collusion? >> i think he'll act on it. i say this as a half of a joke. to collude, you come up with a

7:10 am
stop interrupting -- >> wow. cuomo also said he will not run for president in 2020 if he's re-elected in november. that makes me want to go back and watch the whole thing. >> absolutely. >> another senior trump administration official, white house counsel don mcgahn, will soon be leaving. the announcement came less than two weeks after the news that mcgahn met with special counsel robert mueller three times. but sources say mcgahn had talked about resigning for months. president trump says he'll leave after the senate confirmation hearings for supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh. florida's republican nominee for governor is under fire for a remark that democrats describe as racially charged. congressman desantos said voters would monkey up the success if they elect his opponent tallahassee mayor andrew gullum.

desantis. >> reporter: president donald trump. >> i believe the residents of this state will send a message that we reject that kind of hatr hatred. >> reporter: the president did not address desantis' controversial comments. >> the candidate you endorsed said it's not time to monkey around with the economy down in florida. >> no, i didn't hear it -- >> -- a racist comment -- >> i didn't hear that. >> reporter: gillum is an outspoken progressive. >> elect this man as the next governor of this state. >> reporter: and was endorsed by vermont senator bernie sanders. des desantis said his comments were about that, gillum's politics. >> it has zero to do with race. it has everything to do with whether we want florida to continue to go in a good direction, building off this success, or turn to left wing socialist policy. >> reporter: our request to interview desantis was declined but his campaign said any attempts to characterize those comments as racist was, quote,
