Here's What Trump Said

Speaking on Just The News, Trump claimed that Joe Biden and members of his family received millions from Russian oligarchs and asked Putin to shed some light on this alleged corruption.

As reported by Newsweek, Trump said in the interview that he tried to raise this issue during one of the presidential debates, but moderator Chris Wallace prevented him from doing so.

"As long as Putin now is, not exactly, a fan of our country, let him explain where...because Chris Wallace would not let me ask the question... Why did the mayor of Moscow's wife give the Bidens, both of them, $3.5 million?" Trump asked.

Trump then directly asked Putin to release damaging information about the Bidens and explained this alleged bribe they supposedly received from Moscow.

"That is a lot of money, she gave him $3.5 million. So now I would think Putin would know the answer to that, I think he should release it," the former president said.

"I think we should know that answer but we won't get that answer from Ukraine," he added.

Clips of Trump urging Putin to release information about the first family went viral on social media, with some receiving millions of views.

Trump also took aim at the president's son, Hunter Biden, noting that he received thousands of dollars per month when he sat on the board of a Ukrainian gas company.

"But why did the mayor of Moscow's wife give the Biden family three and a half million dollars? Nobody wants to ask the question," Trump insisted.

"But why is it that the mayor of Moscow's wife gave the Biden family three and a half million dollars? I think Putin now would be willing to probably give that answer, I'm sure he knows," the former president reiterated.

Commenting on Trump's controversial remarks, Aaron Blake of The Washington Postpointed out that Putin is universally disliked in the Untied States.

In a recent poll, just one percent of Americans said they have a positive view of the Russian leader, while 88 percent said they have a negative view of him.

According to Blake, it seems as though Trump is trying to damage Biden by any means necessary, even if that means inviting Putin's interference.
