Trump Says Putin Would Prefer Hillary Clinton White House: ‘I’m a Big Military Person’ (Video)

“If Hillary had won, our military would be decimated,” POTUS tells Pat Robertson

President Trump sat down with the Christian Broadcasting Network’s Pat Robertson for his first non-Fox News interview in recent memory, saying Russian President Vladimir Putin would prefer Hillary Clinton living in the White House.

“We are the most powerful country in the world and we are getting more and more powerful because I’m a big military person. As an example, if Hillary had won, our military would be decimated. Our energy would be much more expensive. That’s what Putin doesn’t like about me. And that’s why I say, why would he want me? Because from day one I wanted a strong military, he doesn’t want to see that,” Trump said.

CBN will air the full interview Thursday on the “700 Club” but offered a preview in advance. Robertson asked Trump about his recent meeting with Putin at the G20 meeting in Germany.

“Well, he wants what’s good for Russia, and I want what’s good for the United States,” Trump said.

Trump called the meeting “good” and “excellent,” pointing to the ceasefire agreement in Syria as a positive thing that came out of the meeting.

Trump continued: “I think in a case like Syria where we can get together, do a ceasefire, and there are many other cases where getting along can be a very positive thing, but always Putin is going to want Russia and Trump is going to want the United States and that’s the way it is.”
