However, President Trump vehemently denied doing this.

On Friday, Mr Trump called into the Fox & Friends show to give a 50-minute live interview.

Trump's son Donald Trump Jr. was questioned by a Senate committee in a closed session on Wednesday about a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower in NY, in which a Russian lawyer offered damaging information on Hillary Clinton, the elder Trump's Democratic opponent in the 2016 presidential election.

He continued: "But of course you do that".

Mr Trump also maintained he would still at least review any such foreign-supplied information. "You couldn't have that happen with our country, and everybody understands that".

Earlier in the week, Trump had told ABC that he would consider accepting information from an outside nation and might not contact law enforcement.

In an interview that aired Wednesday, ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos asked the president if he would accept dirt from Russian Federation or China if it were offered to him or turn it over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Trump, in an interview on Friday with "Fox & Friends", said he would "of course" look at the information in order to determine whether or not it was "incorrect".

She prefaced the statement on Twitter by writing, "I would not have thought that I needed to say this". The president has doubled down on comments he made Wednesday suggesting he might take opposition research from foreign governments, comments Democrats seized on immediately.

A top Republican ally said Trump was wrong to say he would accept dirt on political rivals from foreign sources.

President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with governors on "workforce freedom and mobility" in the Cabinet Room of the White House, Thursday, June 13, 2019, in Washington.

During the interview, Trump said he was never going to fire Robert Mueller, despite pressing the point that the investigator was "conflicted".
