Pence: It's 'Inarguable' Putin Is a 'Stronger Leader' Than Obama

Hillary Clinton Press Conference

Former CIA acting director Michael Morell again called Donald Trump an "unwitting agent" of Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday.

Trump's speech on Friday comes after the candidate took the unusual step of criticizing US policy in a program aired on Thursday night on Russian government-funded television network, RT, a 24-hour news channel that broadcasts in both English and Russian. "I think this will be the last election that the Republicans have a chance of winning because you're going to have people flowing across the border, you're going to have illegal immigrants coming in and they're going to be legalised and they're going to be able to vote and once that all happens you can forget it", he said.

Trump's unusual campaign places even more pressure on moderators who try for fairness because he tells more falsehoods than most politicians, said Glenn Kessler, who writes the Fact Checker column for The Washington Post.

"Now, you combine a free pass for Putin on aggressive behaviour and a welcome by ISIS that his language plays right into their hands and will give them more credibility in saying that this is some kind of civilisational war, we're going to have to undo the damage that he's already done in the campaign after this election and make it very clear, the United States stands by our word, we stand by our friends and allies", she said. "Because that would not be appropriate at all". The campaign later said it did not realize Trump's conversation with Larry King would air on RT, and that they would not have agreed to the interview had they known.

"I don't know what Trump knew".

Lauer's role at the Wednesday night forum was to both moderate and conduct back-to-back live interviews with the two candidates about issues important to the American public. And the appearance on Russian television suggested no hesitation from Trump to dive into the controversy.

Putin has denied any involvement in the cyber attacks.

When it came time to question Trump, Lauer essentially told him that "nobody would expect you" to study foreign policy. He showered praise againon Vladimir putin. "I have absolutely no opinion on that". Aides fear a scenario in which a single misstep by Clinton gets a tougher assessment than repeated mistakes by Trump.

On MSNBC's "Morning Joe", he was asked about a much-discussed war-torn Syrian city. "We should go in, we should stop this guy", Trump said in a 2011 video blog. I have a substantial chance of winning. The war in Iraq started in 2003, and Lauer didn't challenge him on it. For instance, he asked Clinton to explain how she planned to defeat ISIS "as briefly as you can". I mean I've been hearing about it, I've been reading about it.
