The Times said the White House did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
In another encounter, Trump reportedly grilled his former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus about how his interview with the Mueller team went and asked Priebus if the investigators had been "nice" to him, two people familiar with the conversation told the Times.
Mueller is aware of both conversations.
Additionally, CNN reported last month that Mueller's team has been asking witnesses about Trump's business activities in Russian Federation prior to the 2016 presidential campaign as he considered a run for president.

He shared no specifics and did not say what he had told investigators, and the conversation moved on after a few minutes, those briefed on it said.
