At a Houston rally last year, President Trump made a proclamation: “You know what I am?” he asked. “I’m a nationalist. Okay? I’m a nationalist.”
But Trump, we know by now, is a prolific liar, and even this statement has been proven to be a falsehood. Sure, he’s for strong borders, strong exports, and bringing American manufacturing home from overseas. But on Wednesday, Trump told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos he is fine with other countries — Russia or China in particular — jumping into the 2020 race on his behalf. Oh, he might call the FBI this time. But he would still take advantage of the situation.
“I think you might want to listen, there isn’t anything wrong with listening,” Trump told ABC News. “If somebody called from a country, Norway, [and said] ‘we have information on your opponent’ — oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”
