President Trump thanked supporters ahead of a rally scheduled for Monday night in Louisville, Ky., where he was to appear alongside Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)

Trump was resuming his campaign-style events at the start of a consequential week for his young presidency. Confirmation hearings for his nominee for the Supreme Court, Judge Neil Gorsuch, opened Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee. The House was expected to vote Thursday on the GOP-backed healthcare bill.

Trump's Louisville rally, his third since his inauguration, followed a daylong congressional hearing in which FBI Director James B. Comey acknowledged for the first time that the agency was investigating whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian officials seeking to influence the 2016 campaign.

Comey said the investigation was examining whether "there was any coordination" between individuals associated with the Trump campaign and the Russian government.

Comey suggested that the case was not a criminal investigation but was being conducted as part of FBI's "counterintelligence mission," aimed at preventing Russia intelligence operations against the U.S.

President Trump on Saturday followed up what he called a "great" meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel by blasting her country for what he said were unpaid bills for NATO defense.

Trump reiterated a point he made at his joint news conference Friday with Merkel that many NATO nations owe money to the alliance and the U.S. because they haven't paid their fair share.

This time, he chastised Germany for not paying enough "for the powerful, and very expensive, defense" NATO and the U.S. provide.
