Clapper: ‘I Do Think Both the Chinese and Russians Think They Can Play [Trump]’

‘I do think both the Chinese and Russians think they can play him’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
TAPPER: "Do you agree that Trump can be played by foreign leaders like Putin, and if so, does that make you concerned about the security of the united States?"
CLAPPER: "I do. I think -- you know, he seems very -- susceptible to rolling out the red carpet and honor guards and all the trappings and pomp and circumstance that come with the office. And I think that that appeals to him, and I think it plays to his insecurities. And, yes, I do think both the Chinese and Russians think they can play him."
