Trump “Couldn’t Care Less” If Putin Conversation Becomes Public; Slams “Most Insulting Article” By NYT

President Trump brushed off a report by the Washington Post stating that he “has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details” of his discussions with Russian President Vladimir Putin – telling Fox News host Jeanine Pirro in a phone interview that he would be willing to release the details of a private conversation in Helsinki last summer.

“I would. I don’t care,” Trump told Pirro, adding: “I’m not keeping anything under wraps. I couldn’t care less.”

“I mean, it’s so ridiculous, these people making up,” Trump said of the WaPo report.

The president referred to his roughly two-hour dialogue with Putin in Helsinki — at which only the leaders and their translators were present — as “a great conversation” that included discussions about “securing Israel and lots of other things.”

“I had a conversation like every president does,” Trump said Saturday. “You sit with the president of various countries. I do it with all countries.” –Politico

In July an attempt by House Democrats to subpoena Trump’s Helsinki interpreter was quashed by Republicans.

“The Washington Post is almost as bad, or probably as bad, as the New York Times,” Trump said.

When Pirro asked Trump about a Friday night New York Times report that the FBI had opened an inquiry into whether he was working for Putin, Pirro asked Trump “Are you now or have you ever worked for Russia, Mr. President?”

“I think it’s the most insulting thing I’ve ever been asked,” Trump responded. “I think it’s the most insulting article I’ve ever had written.”

Trump went on an epic tweetstorm Saturday following the Times article, defending his 2017 firing of former FBI Director James Comey, and tweeting that he has been “FAR tougher on Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton. Maybe tougher than any other President. At the same time, & as I have often said, getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. I fully expect that someday we will have good relations with Russia again!”

Trump slammed the recent reports as “all nonsense.”

  1. I just can not believe these Dems. They ran on nothing except “I hate Trump”.
    No, upon taking power, all they have is “investigate, investigate, investigate”……
    They have no plans whatsoever to help The American People.
    They are proposing laws enabling “illegals” to have more rights and benefits than those of us who were born here, worked all out lives, followed all the rules. And paid all our
    taxes. And near half of the so called “registered voters” are
    chairing them on. To What End, I ask. To What End?

  2. If nothing going on with Russia, why constantly lie about it? Why take the interpreters notes and destroy them after having no one from the US government in the room with trump and Putin? Putin’s Puppet?

  3. Evidently the leftists can not govern without an active “witch hunt.” So they enlist the aid of the WAPO and NYT to do their chosen duty as the PR arm of the left. After two years of pumping and no “oil” even the stupid realize they are pumping on a dry well.

  4. The Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Degressive Liberal Democrat Party could care less about American citizens. Their main and only cause is money and Power. If they can get enough illegals into America and get automatic national registration to vote in Federal elections than America will have only one Party, the Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Degressive Liberal Democrat Party. They have planned this very well give the people whatever they want. Sex, abortion, alcohol, gambling, homosexual marriage, transgender changes and now legalized drugs, no accountability. Whatever the millennials want and they will vote that way, regardless how perverted, disgusting or against common decency it is. They will make laws to force people to accept any and all lifestyles.
    People have a right to choose the way they want to live but to force society to accept it is something completely different. The whole world can accept anything but it doesn’t mean God will. One day we will all give account
    To him regardless if you believe in him or not. There is only one way to him because we all fall short of doing his will. He did it all for us through his son what more can we ask of him. His Spirit is even calling us all by name and it’s not about which political party you belong to, or high rich or famous you are. It’s about who and what you support when voting and the way you live your life.

    1. You are so right. As recently voiced by Dan Bongino, the Democrats are on the wrong side of just about every decision our country is facing. And in regard to social behaviors they not only want to permit and moreover for you to accept; we’ve seen this before in Sodom and Gomorrah. Didn’t end well for them.

  5. We only have one party in this country any more, the Republican party. The Democrats do nothing but try to stop everything President Trump tries to do to help the people and the country. We would probably be better off if we didn’t have to put up with them. What is their problem with helping the President when he is helping the people of this country. They want no part of it. I used to vote Democrat, no more. Not unless they change their methods and start working for the people again, which is what they are supposed to be doing.
    People like Pelosi, Schumer, Waters and others in the Democrat party are worthless pieces of crab to the people and this country. It seems like the new ones just elected are no better.
    The media is no better. One of them will come up with a lie, and that all the other networks do is repeat the same lie, over and over. It’s like they are all reading a script. .
    The government shutdown is being blamed on Trump. All the Democrats have to do is vote for money for the wall, which is just crumbs to them. They waste more than that every day. This was something they were all for before Trump was elected. They could stop the government shut down any time, but they don’t want to do that as long as they can blame Trump for it. The people need to put the blame where it belongs, on the Democrats. If they thought they would lose one vote because of it, they would stop it right now.

  6. The Socialist Communist Fascist Racist Digressive Liberal Democrat Party could care less about American !
    They are the scum of the political party!
    They are the black plague to to this country, and they are trying to ruin this country. Obama did not succeed, because Hilary did not get in!
    But they are still working on destroying this country.

  7. Deep State traitors are everywhere!The evil liberal demoncrat Commie Nazi’s party at work here!Don’t forget the RINOs(Romney,Gowdy,Ryan, Rubio, Sessions, Collins, Flake, Haley)they’re just as bad! Drain the rat infested Swamp,Pres Trump!W355

  8. is nothing that you can do about the government but I have one simple little question if the left three free presidents want to put up the wall maybe you can answer my question for me what changed since then

  9. This type of thing is RIDICULOUS — are Catholic confessionals next?? A conversation between two WORLD LEADERS “of necessity” covers a VARIETY of subjects — some as ‘trial balloons”. All that “bug eyes Adam” is looking for is ANYTHING “out of context” to feed to the HIGHLY BIASED press.

  10. What about the open mic episode with Obama and Putin. Was Obama planning on working with Putin once he got re-elected? Why no mention of this by the MSM.
