Later today during the Super Bowl halftime show, Fox News will air a pre-taped interview between President Trump and anchor, Bill O’Reilly.
To help promote the interview, Fox has released a sound bit which is lighting up the internet and made for interesting banter on the Sunday morning talk shows.
In the interview, O’Reilly asks President Trump why he respects Vladimir Putin, a leader whom O’Reilly characterizes as a killer.
Trump answered that there are many people he respects. “I say, it’s better to get along with Russia than not. And if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS, which is a major fight — and Islamic terrorism all over the world — that’s a good thing,” he explained. “Will I get along with him? I have no idea.”
Pressed about Putin’s history of violence, Trump said: “There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What do you think? Our country’s so innocent?”
