President Donald Trump urged the nation “to all come together” Saturday night as he discussed the Democrats' FISA rebuttal memo, potential new gun legislation and plans for a border wall in an exclusive interview with Fox News. Speaking with Jeanine Pirro, host of "Justice with Judge Jeanine," Trump said the Democrats' FISA rebuttal memo “verified” the contents of Republican U.S. Rep. Devin Nunes' memo, which was released previously. The president asserted that that was likely the reason why Democrats didn’t push hard for their own memo to be released. The Democrats' memo, released Saturday, defends the FBI's actions. “I don’t think any administration has done as much as we’ve done in the first year, I don’t think it’s even close,” Trump said.
