Florida Gov. Rick Scott believes the president shouldn't dismiss special prosecutor Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election.
The Republican governor made remarks at a Pinellas County Republican Party dinner Saturday night, reportedly telling the crowd Trump is "going to decide what he wants to do. He gets to make that decision. I wouldn't dismiss him."
Trump has denied reports that he is considering firing the former FBI director, but he has been highly critical of the investigation.
He also told the crowd he supports Trump's decision to launch a missile strike against Syria on Friday. He said Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has been killing his own citizens with chemical weapons.
Scott said, "I think the president acted within his power and did the right thing."
