He later walked back his statement, saying he was speaking for himself, not on behalf of the president. 

Democrats have called for legislation to protect Mueller and some GOP senators have also warned the president not to interfere with the investigation.

Trump reportedly tried to fire Mueller last year but took back his order when the White House counsel threatened to quit if he carried it out.

On Saturday, he tweeted that the Mueller investigation "should never have been started" and called it a "witch hunt."

However, the White House has said Trump does not have plans to fire Mueller. Trump's legal team says they are cooperating with the investigation.
