Bret Baier described the atmosphere at a lunch with President Trump and other news anchors Wednesday as "divisive."

However, Trump himself sounded "undeterred" and seemed like himself, Baier said.

The tone of the lunch was similar to Trump's tweets calling the investigation into his campaign's relationship with Russia an unnecessary "witch hunt," the anchor of "Special Report" said on "Shepard Smith Reporting."

"The White House is hoping to turn the page, as you well know, with all the coverage," Baier said.

The lunch was originally set up to kick off the president's foreign trip beginning Friday evening in Saudi Arabia.

The president will make a decision on who will replace fired FBI Director James Comey soon, Baier reported. Trump confirmed that former Democratic senator Joe Lieberman is the leading candidate.
