Press Secretary Spicer refused to answer how Trump plans to follow Comey’s long awaited and anticipated appearance. “The president’s got a full day on Thursday,” Spicer said. “The president’s going to have a very, very busy day and, as he does all the time, I think his focus is going to be on pursuing the agenda and priorities that he was elected to do.”
