Over the past several weeks, Trump’s undying allegiance to Russian President Vladimir Putin has come under intense scrutiny as Mueller’s probe heats up, and the midterm elections draw closer. The president has yet to call out Russian meddling in U.S. elections, instead opting to blame the Obama administration for its apparent inadequate response to Russian tampering in the 2016 election.
Over the weekend, 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke at an event in Mumbai, India. In the midst of her speech, she shared her observations concerning the Trump-Putin connection.
“Trump does have quite an affinity for dictators. He really likes their authoritarian posturing and behavior. He does have a pre-existing attitude of favorability toward these dictators, but I think it’s more than that with Putin and Russia.”
When asked if she believes the Russian government has leverage over Trump, Clinton answered, “Well, we’ll find out. We’ll find out. Follow the money.”
Clinton then reflected on her 2016 presidential campaign:
“If people were looking for a reality TV campaign, maybe I should have given them more entertainment. I’m the mother who says, ‘Eat your spinach; you’ll grow up strong.’ Someone else is saying, ‘Eat all the fast food and the ice cream you can possibly stick in your mouth.'”
On Sunday, Trump once again blasted “Crooked Hillary,” stating, “The only Collusion was that done by the DNC, the Democrats and Crooked Hillary. The writer of the story, Maggie Haberman, a Hillary flunky, knows nothing about me and is not given access.”
