Donald Trump Admitted Knowing Putin In 2013: 'I Do Have A Relationship With Him'

If there was any question in anyone's mind living in America that Donald Trump is a serial liar, they should immediately watch this video.

Shaun King at The NY Daily News tweeted this out

You have to see this for yourself. In 2013, Trump, who now denies any such a relationship, repeatedly says he has a relationship w/ Putin.

Not only does he say that he has a relationship with Putin, he says that Putin monitors what he says and watches his video interviews.

Ever since the US Intelligence community has blamed Russia for hacking and trying to disrupt our election process, Trump has categorically denied knowing Putin, at all.

Here's what Trump said in the Third Presidential Debate:

Now we can talk about Putin. I don't know Putin. He said nice things about me.

I never met Putin. This is not my best friend.

In the Second Presidential Debate, Trump said:

But as far as other elements of what she was saying, I don’t know Putin. I think it would be great if we got along with Russia because we could fight ISIS together, as an example. But I don’t know Putin.

In the First Presidential Debate, Hillary brought up Putin's name, but Trump didn't mention him specifically. He did however defend Russia.

I don't think anybody knows it was Russia that broke into the DNC. She's saying Russia, Russia, Russia, but I don't -- maybe it was. I mean, it could be Russia, but it could also be China. It could also be lots of other people. It also could be somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds, OK?

Donald Trump is a serial liar, folks.

Don't take my word for it, believe your listening ears and watching eyes.
