Trump: ‘I Go In’ to The Meeting with ‘Very Low Expectations’
GLOR: "I saw the conversation you had with Jens Stoltenberg, which was a very direct conversation. As you approach the meetings with Vladimir Putin coming up, do you expect a similar tone?"
TRUMP: "I don’t expect anything. I frankly don’t expect... I go in with very low expectations. I think that getting along with Russia is a good thing, but it’s possible we won’t. I think we’re greatly hampered by this whole witch-hunt that’s going on in the United States, the Russian witch-hunt, the rigged situation. I watched some of the testimony, even though I’m in Europe, of strzok, and I thought it was a disgrace to our country. I thought it was an absolute disgrace where he wants to do things against me before I was even... I guess before I was even the candidate. It was a disgrace. And then he lied about it. And, you know, talking about shutting it down, we, we. He says, oh, I mend the American people all. A sudden. He came up with excuses. I guess he gave in to a lawyer. Everybody laughed at it. He’s a disgrace to our county. He’s a disgrace to the F.B.I. He led that investigation or whatever you call it. I would say that, yeah, I think it hurts our relationship with Russia. I actually think it hurts our relationship with a lot of countries. I think it’s a disgrace what’s going on. And then you look how partisan it is. You look at what’s going on where... And they know. They know there’s in way he can get away from those horrible texts that he wrote. So the other side knows, but it’s a very partisan thing."
