Trump Doesn’t Deny He’s a Russian Agent When Asked By Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro
On Saturday, President Donald Trump called into Jeanine Pirro‘s Fox News show.
During that interview, host Jeanine Pirro asked Trump about a New York Times report that claimed that the FBI opened an investigation — after the firing of James Comey — to probe if Trump was an acting agent of Russia.
“I’m going to ask you, are you now or have you ever worked for Russia, Mr. President?” Pirro asked.
Trump did not exactly deny it although he was very clear he found the Times report insulting.
In response to Pirro, Trump said this: “I think it’s the most insulting thing I’ve ever been asked. I think it’s the most insulting article I’ve ever had written. And if you read the article, you’d see that they found absolutely nothing. But the headline of that article, it’s called ‘The failing New York Times’ for a reason, they’ve gotten me wrong for three years. They’ve actually gotten me wrong for many years before that.”
Then, after calling Comey a liar, he claimed once again he was the toughest on Russia.
“And I can tell you this, if you ask the folks in Russia, I’ve been tougher on Russia than anybody else, any other — probably any other president period, but certainly the last three or four presidents, modern day presidents,” the president said. “Nobody’s been as tough as I have from any standpoint including the fact that we’ve done oil like we’ve never done it, we’re setting records in exporting oil and many other things.”
Trump then repeated it was a “great insult” and called the Times a “disaster.”
