ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos challenges Donald Trump over the kind words he recieved this week from Russian president Vladimir Putin. Donald Trump does not accept the premise that Putin is a dictator, asking for proof that Putin has ever killed reporters. "Nobody has proven that he's killed anyone," says Trump. "If he has killed reporters, I think that's terrible. But this isn't like somebody that's stood with a gun and he's, you know, taken the blame or he's admitted that he's killed. He's always denied it."
"[Putin] has always denied it. It's never been proven that he's killed anybody," Trump said on ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday morning. "You're supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, at least in our country. It has not been proven that he's killed reporters."
"Have you been able to prove that? Do you know the names of the reporters he has killed?"
