I love seeing Russia and other countries interfering in our elections. The intelligence community has been very clear about it. But the Trump recognizes it or not or acknowledges that not they did interfere in 2016. The intelligence community is telling us they are interfering in this campaign right now in two thousand and twenty. And when I say to Mr. Putin, if elected president. Trust me, you are not going to be interfering in America. When were you briefed on this?
I'm guessing about a month ago. And what what are you going to do now that you know that you know this?
Well, we knew it was not clear what role they're going to play. We were told that Russia, maybe other countries are going to get involved in this campaign. And look, here is the message to Russia. Stay out of American elections and what they are doing, by the way, the ugly thing that they are doing. And I've seen some of their, you know, tweets and stuff is they tried to divide us up. That's what they did in 2016.
And that is the ugliest thing they're doing is they are trying to cause chaos. They're trying to cause hatred in America. It's an ugly business. And all of us have got to say, sorry, you're not going to do this in this election. And again, is president in the United States. Mr. Buton you will not interfere in my bingo.
How do you how did you think it came out now if you had the briefing a month ago? I'll let you guess about one day before the Iowa the Nevada caucus. Why do you think that came out? Was The Washington Post good friends?
