Let's Talk About Donald Trump, Putin, Russian Espionage, Emails, and How Katy Tur Got Wrecked Again

During a press conference in Miami, Donald Trump answered a series of questions in which the media reported that he suggested that Russia should hack Hillary Clinton and find the missing 30,000 emails. However, what was reported by the media was much different than what Trump actually said. Donald Trump basically said that if Russia, or another party, was able to hack a bunch of United States emails, that it's a disrespectful thing to do. He went on to say that whoever was able to hack the emails that have been released so far, should also turn over the Hillary Clinton emails, if they are able to find them. Later, on Twitter, he backed those statements up with a more clear and succinct, under 140 characters statement: "If Russia or any other country or person has Hillary Clinton's 33,000 illegally deleted emails, perhaps they should share them with the FBI!" Which, of course, makes perfect sense.
