Donald further asserted that I am not going to give you a question. You are fake news!
Trump dismissed as “nonsense” the media claims that Russia has compromising information on him, saying the allegations may have been leaked by US intelligence agencies and it would be a tremendous blot on their record if they did that.
Referring to BuzzFeed, Donald said that It is frankly outrageous and highly irresponsible for a left-wing blog…to drop highly salacious and flat-out false information on the Internet just days before he takes the oath of office.
