Mr Trump was pressed on his reluctance to criticise the Russian president, despite a consensus from allies that Mr Putin has actively worked to undermine Western institutions and... "Don't count on it", Trump said in the edited clip. "But I think China meddled too", Trump said. Recorded on Thursday, the interview was broadcast on Sunday night.

In September, Trump had alleged that China was trying to interfere in the 2018 mid-term polls, while chairing a UN Security Council meeting on the sidelines of the UN general Assembly in NY. Russian Federation has denied it, as it has all previous instances and allegations of murders and assassinations of those critical of the government.

Correspondent Lesley Stahl came armed for bear, quick to call Trump out on baseless claims and his deferral of certain questions. "And I think, frankly, China.is a bigger problem", Trump said, while denying that he was trying to divert attention from Russian Federation. "I'm the one- and he's the one that gave away a part of Ukraine where Russian Federation now has this".

To date, 32 people have been charged or pleaded guilty in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. President Trump's campaign manager Pal Manafort, former national security advisor Michal Flynn and longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen are all cooperating in the inquiry.

"I'm president and you're not", Trump explained. "And I think, frankly, China is a bigger problem". "Something's changing and it'll change back again". "I don't think it's a hoax". ("I don't want to hurt jobs", he explained.) Trump acknowledged that son-in-law Jared Kushner gave Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman a ring to personally inquire into the country's possible culpability and even murder of Khashoggi.
