Donald Trump wants you to know that if elected, he will not kill journalists. However, journalists are definitely on his hit list.
During a campaign rally in Walker, Michigan Monday, Donald Trump discussed his praise of Vladimir Putin, addressing critics who say the Russian president is responsible for the murder of journalists in his country.
“Then they said, ‘You know, he’s killed reporters,’” Trump said to a crowd of 7,500 people. “And I don’t like that. I’m totally against that.”
“But I do hate them,” Trump said. “I hate some of these people, but I’ll be honest, I would never kill them.”
“Some of them are such lying, disgusting people, it’s true,” Trump continued, repeating he “would never kill them.”
Reminder to journalist: he also said he would never lie.
So … make sure your passport is up to date just in case.
