Trump Smiles, Warns Putin Of Meddling With Upcoming Election
President Donald Trump issued a casual warning about meddling in the upcoming election to Russian President Vladimir Putin Friday at the G-20 summit.
Trump and Putin met for the first time in almost a year Friday ahead of discussions about mending the tense relationship between the two countries. Towards the end of the meeting, a journalist asked Trump if he was going to tell Putin not to meddle in the 2020 election.
“Yes, of course I will,” Trump replied, causing Putin to laugh.
“Don’t meddle in the election, please,” Trump said twice, wagging his finger at Putin.
