Donald Trump did an interview Thursday with Larry King, who now hosts 'Politicking With Larry King' on Russia Today, an English-language Russian state-backed news service. Trump said it would "not be appropriate" if Russian forces were looking to influence the race for American president.
"I think it's probably unlikely. Maybe the Democrats are putting that out -- who knows," Trump told King. "If they are doing something, I hope that somebody's going to be able to find out so they can end it. Because that would not be appropriate at all."
"I don't know who hacked [the DNC]. You tell me: Who hacked?" Trump said about charges Russia was behind the hack. "I have absolutely no opinion on that."

RUSSIA TODAY: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump tells RT's Larry King that he doesn’t dislike Hillary Clinton, but that she’s not the person to make America great again – and that their televised duel Wednesday was more fun than baseball.
Trump said the most surprising thing about running for office was the media’s "tremendous dishonesty."
"I mean, they'll take a statement that you make, which is perfect," Trump said, "and they'll cut it up and chop it up and shorten it or lengthen it, or do something with it, then all of a sudden, it doesn't look like as good as it did when you actually said it."
