If there was a tiny little part of you that wondered if Trump was an unwitting pawn of Putin, this should settle things:

Donald Trump said Saturday that during a brief conversation with Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of an economic summit, the Russian president flatly denied meddling in the 2016 election that brought Trump to the White House.

'He said he didn't meddle. He said he didn't meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times,' Trump said. 'I just asked him again.'

'He said he absolutely did not meddle in our election. He did not do what they are saying he did.'

Uh, maybe this entire conversation never happened?
