"It was just an excuse, but we were very, very happy, and, frankly, James Comey confirmed a lot of what I said, and some of the things that he said just weren't true".
Mr Trump kept silent during the hearing - keeping away from Twitter even after the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director accused him of telling "lies, plain and simple" - but after it was over offered a clue to his next step in a statement read by his lawyer, Marc Kasowitz.
The House requested Comey and the White House provide the records, including tapes if they exist, by June 23. "It doesn't make sense".
TRUMP: I didn't say that.
Comey testified Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
"I've seen the tweet about tapes".
Recounting a February 14 White House meeting where Trump pressed the director to drop the FBI's inquiry into national security adviser Michael Flynn, Comey said a decision was made not to report the incident to Sessions.
Meanwhile, lawmakers are asking the White House to turn over any taped conversations between Trump and Comey.
"Main Comey hearing takeaway: POTUS (an acronym for president of the United States) improperly said drop Flynn case & only refutation is 2nd-hand, error-filled stmt from paid atty Kasowitz", he tweeted.
The US president was asked by a journalist if he would be willing to give his version of events under oath.
During his testimony, Comey admitted to leaking copies of memo notes he wrote after conversations with Trump to a friend with the idea that it would wind up in the media.
He called the line of questioning regarding conversations between Trump and Comey "an excuse by the Democrats who lost an election that some people think they shouldn't have lost".
Trump abruptly fired Comey as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation on May 9, admitting later that the Russian Federation probe was on his mind at the time.
The key issue before the Senate Intelligence Committee was whether Trump sought to obstruct the investigation in nine conversations with Comey this year, leading up to his dismissal of the FBI chief on May 9.
Trump's feelings echo the sentiments of his personal lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, who was brought on to help defend the president amid the Russian Federation probe.
