Donald knows best.
President Trump sought to spin his explosive admission that he would welcome foreign interference in the 2020 election only so he could judge whether it’s “wrong” — and report it to the FBI.
In a strained effort to defuse the controversy over his candid statement, Trump said on Friday he would “look at it (to determine) if it’s bad.”
“if I thought anything was incorrect or badly stated I’d report to the FBI or law enforcement, absolutely,” Trump said in a call-in interview with Fox News. “Of course you give it to the FBI or report it to the attorney general.”
Trump sparked a firestorm when he admitted that he would welcome dirt on 2020 rivals from foreign operatives in a bombshell interview with ABC’s George Stephanopolous.
Critics called that a virtual invitation for adversaries like Russia and China to shop damaging information on Democrats in hopes of currying favor with the malleable man in the White House.
