Trump on Russia Hack: Of Course I Was Being Sarcastic


BRIAN KILMEADE, FOX NEWS: You went out and did a press conference, and one line is getting a lot of press. You said --

TRUMP: Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing.

KILMEADE: Clinton campaign says, this is a national security issue. Now, the idea that you'd have any American calling for a foreign power to commit espionage in the U.S. for the purpose of somehow changing an election, I think that we're now in a national security space. Your reaction?

TRUMP: You have to be kidding. His client, his person, deleted 33,000 e-mails illegally. You look at that. And when I'm being sarcastic with something --

KILMEADE: Were you being sarcastic?

TRUMP: Of course, I'm being sarcastic. But you have 33,000 e-mails deleted, and the real problem is what was said in those e-mails from the Democratic National Committee. You take a look at what was said in those e-mails, it's disgraceful. It's disgraceful. They talk about religion, they talk about race, they talk about all sorts of things, including women, and what they said in those e-mails is a disgrace.
