On Thursday, President Trump interviewed with ABC News Chief Anchor, George Stephanopoulos, which caused quite a stir when asked whether Trump’s campaign would accept “dirt” against his 2020 rivals during the upcoming presidential race from foreigners  — such as China or Russia — or hand it over the FBI.

“I think maybe you do both. I think you might want to listen, there isn’t anything wrong with listening,” President Trump said on Thursday. “If somebody called from a country, Norway, [and said] ‘we have information on your opponent’ — oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”

On Friday, the President clarified in another interview to the manufactured outrage from the left with the hosts of “Fox and Friends” where he said, “If I was, and of course you have to look at it because if you don’t look at it, you’re not going to know if it’s bad. How are you going to know if it’s bad? But, of course, you give it to the FBI or report it to the Attorney General or somebody like that. But of course you do that, you couldn’t have that happen with our country and everybody understands that.”

Trump continued, “If you don’t hear what it is, you’re not going to know what it is. If I don’t listen, you’re not going to know. If I thought anything was incorrect or badly stated, I’d report it to the Attorney General, the FBI– I’d report it to law enforcement, absolutely.”

Congressmen Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Jim Jordan (R-OH) also responded to the hypocrisy and hysteria among Democrats where they took to Twitter about the “foreign opposition” remarks made by the President. (Continued Below)

Rep. Meadows wrote, “What’s most amazing about the pearl clutching over Trump’s “foreign oppo” comment—we’ve got a complete paper trail of Hillary Clinton and the DNC *paying* for info from Russian agents in 2016. But that doesn’t matter, apparently. It’s only a problem when Trump is involved.”

He continued, “But instead of digging deeper on this—how a false, Democrat purchased dossier (sourced to Russian agents) was allowed to be back-channeled to our Justice Department, spread as factual, and then featured to open an investigation—this is where we go. Give me a break.”

Meadows added, “This week President Trump was able to do something no one else could: get the left to care about foreign intel in our elections. You’d think Democrats paying for oppo research from Russians, then funneling it to DOJ to open an investigation, would’ve done the trick. Guess not.” (Continued Below)

Jordan also commented on Twitter and said, “Talk about taking foreign help. Hillary Clinton hired a foreign spy. He talked to Russians and put together an oppo research document. It wasn’t verified, but the FBI used it to spy on the Trump campaign.”
