Donald Trump is no longer in office, but the former president continues to praise his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, even as Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was transferred to a prison hospital due to his deteriorating health.
Fox News host Sean Hannity asked Trump on Monday what he would do differently if he were to run for president again in 2024 and win the election.
Trump did not lay out a vision for the future and instead complained about investigations into his ties with Russia.
Trump recounted that his 2016 campaign aides repeatedly asked him about his ties to Russia, but denied there was relationship.
“Getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing,” Trump argued.
“I got along great with President Putin, I liked him, he liked me,” he said. “That’s a good thing, not a bad thing.”
