That ACLU deal aimed to end what it called unconstitutional policing, making cops file on more detailed explanations for street stops, lengthy paperwork the FOP said made officers less effective on the streets.

It was not immediately clear what Trump had asked Sessions to do, and the attorney general's Tuesday statement did not elaborate on next steps.

President Donald Trump on Monday said he had no plans to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, putting a halt to rumors that he would do so.

"I think we'll be treated very fairly. We actually get along".

Afterward, Trump told reporters he had no plans to fire Rosenstein.

Fox Hires Former White House Communications Director Hope Hicks
Mr Trump is also reported to have a close relationship with host Sean Hannity, a leading cable news cheerleader of the president. Fox, the media company formed in the wake of 21st Century Fox's sale to the Walt Disney Company, announced the hiring on Monday.

The pair flew together to Florida on Air Force One and talked things over.

"Gotta be properly applied, but stop-and-frisk works", said Trump, who had traveled to Orlando with Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Rosenstein had appeared close to being fired following U.S. media reports, which he denied, that he discussed secretly recording Trump and using the 25th Constitutional Amendment for removing presidents found to be unfit for office.

Rosenstein's job at the Justice Department, which includes oversight of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 election, seems secure - for now. "The press wants to know, 'What did you talk about?' 'We had a very good talk, ' I will say".

"I didn't know Rod before, but I've gotten to know him", Trump said at the White House.

Trump says he'll name Haley successor in 'next 2 or 3 weeks'
Ms Haley had discussed her resignation with Mr Trump last week when she visited him at the White House , sources said. Haley is 46 years old and says she has no immediate plans. "But I will tell you that I think it's time ".

The Justice Department issued statements meant to deny the reporting, saying Rosenstein never pursued or authorized recording the president and did not believe there was a basis for invoking the 25th Amendment of the Constitution, which would involve the Cabinet and vice president agreeing to remove him.

So Rosenstein's departure, possibly putting someone more pliable in his place, would set off alarm bells over the future independence of a probe which has the potential to rock the entire presidency.

Even so, Rosenstein told White House officials that he was willing to resign and arrived at the White House at one point with the expectation that he would be fired. He met in person with White House chief of staff John Kelly and spoke by phone with Trump during a tumultuous day that ended with him still in his job. Their meeting two weeks ago was postponed amid the Supreme Court nomination hearings.

Rosenstein was reported to have made the remarks about secretly recording Trump in conversations with other Justice Department and FBI officials and McCabe, then the acting bureau director, was one of the people that wrote a memo that documented Rosenstein's comments. He also tweeted back at Trump for his miseducation on the topic.

Kelly was present for today's conversation between Rosenstein and Trump, the White House said, as was Rosenstein's top deputy at the Justice Department, Ed O'Callaghan.
