I think I get along very well with Vladimir Putin, I just think so. He came out of nowhere two days ago and he said, Trump is brilliant. Wouldn't it be nice if we could get along like with people? These characters that I'm running against said, we want you to disavow that statement.
I said, what? He called me a genius, I'm gonna disavow it, are you crazy? They like to say, the Russians, he doesn't know if it's the Russians doing the hacking, maybe there is no hacking. From everything I see has no respect for this person.>> Well, that's because he'd rather have a puppet as President of the United States
>> I have nothing to do with Russia. There is absolutely no collusion. It's an honor to meet with you. Thank you, thank you.
had a call with President Putin and congratulated him on the victory, his electoral victory. There's nobody been tougher on Russia.
You know what? Putin's fine, he's fine. We're all fine. We're people. And somebody was saying is he an enemy, he's not my enemy. Ultimately, he's a competitor, he's representing Russia, I'm representing the United States. Hopefully, some day maybe he'll be a friend, it could happen.
