Reporter Interrupts Trump While Discussing His Phone Call With Putin, Trump Fires Back: ‘You Are Very Rude’

President Trump spoke with Vladimir Putin on Friday and discussed a range of issues, including nuclear weapons, a three-party arms control agreement and the conflict in Venezuela.

Trump and Putin spoke for “a little over an hour,” and also discussed North Korea, Ukraine, trade and the special counsel’s Russia investigation.

The President took to Twitter after the phone call to let everyone know what they discussed as he remains transparent.

He wrote, “Had a long and very good conversation with President Putin of Russia. As I have always said, long before the Witch Hunt started, getting along with Russia, China, and everyone is a good thing, not a bad thing.

Trump added, “We discussed Trade, Venezuela, Ukraine, North Korea, Nuclear Arms Control and even the “Russian Hoax.” Very productive talk!”

The President also told reporters some of the details of his talks with Putin on a potential nuclear deal. (Continued Below)

“We’re talking about a nuclear agreement where we make less, and they make less, and maybe even where we get rid of some of the tremendous firepower we have right now,” Trump said. “We’re spending billions of dollars on nuclear weapons. We need that, but we are also … looking at a three-way deal instead of a two-way deal.”

Asked if he addressed the election meddling that came up in the Mueller report, the President responded, “We discussed it. He sorta smiled when he said something to the effect that it started off as a mountain and it ended up being a mouse.. but he knew that because he knew there was no collusion, whatsoever.”

While he was addressing the reporter’s question about election meddling, another reporter interrupted the President, so he put her directly in her place. (Continued Below)

She blurted out, “Did you tell him not to meddle, Mr. President, in the next election?”

Trump fired back, “Excuse me, I’m talking. I’m answering his question– you are very rude.” [Emphasized]

When the President finished his answer, the press yelled out the same question again– asking about Putin meddling in the next election, and the President said that they did not discuss it.
