"I don't think there's ever been a president elected who in this short period of time has done what we've done", he said during a news conference at the White House.
The U.S. Justice Department reported the possible discrepancy in Flynn's comments about the phone calls to the White House - and the president - on January 26.
Democrats have called for aggressive investigations into the matter, as well as other connections between Russian Federation and the president and his campaign. He had earlier lashed out at the media as "shameful and wrong" over "wrong" inauguration crowd reports and recently, accused them of dishonest coverage after the Washington Post had published transcript of his telephonic conversation with Australian Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull earlier this month.
The president said he doesn't think Flynn did anything wrong by calling Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak and allegedly discussing Obama-levied sanctions before Trump took office, though Trump said he didn't direct those calls. Flynn made the mistake of denying that he had discussed specific sanctions against Russian Federation during these conversations.
When exactly did Trump know?
The retired lieutenant general was serving as a member of Trump's transition team then. One hour later, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicertold reporters Trump was "evaluating the situation".
Trump also predicted how his animated and unorthodox news conference will be interpreted in the press. In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, Nunes alleged that the Flynn fiasco was a result of intelligence personnel from the Obama administration illegally leaking information unlawfully attained by tapping Flynn's phone line while he was a private citizen.
"In the end, it was misleading the vice-president that made the situation unsustainable", White House Counsellor Kellyanne Conway said on Tuesday. "That's the real problem", Trump said.

Kosachev, who chairs Russia's Federation Council (upper house of parliament) Committee for International Affairs, said Flynn can hardly be considered a pro-Russian politician.
Almost a month into his presidency, Mr Trump said his new administration had made "significant progress" and took credit for an optimistic business climate and a rising stock market.
"Well I had nothing to do with it", Trump said when pressed on whether his campaign aides had conversations with Russian intelligence.
Flynn has now acknowledged he gave "incomplete information" about the phone calls. It's so important." He reiterated, "Russia is a ruse. "They should exercise oversight over the Trump Administration". "It's nothing to do with us".
It is not immediately clear what action the Justice Department might take against Flynn, if any, for misleading the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which has declined to comment on the matter.
"We in Congress need to know who authorised his actions, permitted them, and continued to let him have access to our most sensitive national security information despite knowing these risks", their statement said.
He said he was not bothered that Mr Flynn spoke with the ambassador about United States sanctions on Russian Federation, even before arriving at the White House.
