In extensive interviews with Fox News on Sunday, the President-Elect of America took to the airwaves of the United States of Russia to further debunk any claims that Vladamir Putin helped him win the election.
- On why he made daily intelligence briefings weekly: “These are very good people that are giving me the briefings. And I say, ‘If something should change from this point, immediately call me. I’m available on one-minute’s notice.’ I don’t have to be told—you know, I’m, like, a smart person. I don’t have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years. I don’t need that.”
On the appointment of Russia ‘s lover boy Rex Tillerson: “He’s much more than a business executive. I mean, he’s a world-class player. He’s in charge of, I guess the largest company in the world. … It’s been a company that’s been unbelievably managed. And to me, a great advantage is he knows many of the players, and he knows them well. He does massive deals in Russia.”
-On the One-China policy: “I don’t know why we have to be bound by a One-China policy unless we make a deal with China having to do with other things, including trade. I mean, look, we’re being hurt very badly by China with devaluation, with taxing us heavy at the borders when we don’t tax them, with building a massive fortress in the middle of the South China Sea, which they shouldn’t be doing, and frankly with not helping us at all with North Korea. So, I don’t want China dictating to me and this was a call put into me.”
