US President Donald Trump believes he has the power to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

US President Donald Trump believes he has the power to dismiss special counsel Robert Mueller, the White House says.

"He certainly believes he has the power to do so," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a daily news briefing on Tuesday.

Trump had replied, "We'll see what happens" when he was asked on Monday if he would fire Mueller following the FBI's raiding of the offices and home of the president's personal lawyer Michael Cohen.
