“I think what I’m saying is that when you talk about connections to Russia, I think the only connection that anyone has made with President Trump is multiple years ago he hosted a pageant there and he’s — some of the — he owns condos around the world and some of them were sold to some Russians, and I think he sold a house to one several years back. That’s his connection,” the press secretary said.
“When you talk about the other side, you look at what the Obama administration’s connections were. You have a secretary of state that was selling a fifth of our country’s uranium. You have a Clinton Foundation concern with some of the donations they got. You’ve got the former president, her husband, giving paid speeches, getting a personal call from Vladimir Putin. You’ve got a stated goal of that administration, of Secretary Clinton to have a reset to ‘strengthen Russia,’” Spicer added.
“So when you compare the two sides in terms of who’s actually engaging with Russia, trying to strengthen them, trying to act with them, trying to interact with them, it is night and day between our actions and her actions, and yet no one questioned what she was doing or how she was handling it,” Spicer said.”
