7 memorable quotes from the presidential forum

Ryan trashes Putin but won't call out Trump for praising him

On Thursday, Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence defended Donald Trump's statement that Russian president Vladmir Putin is a "stronger leader" than Obama.

Republican nominee Trump again praised Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling him a "leader" and saying Putin has "great control over his country". "And I think I would have a very, very good relationship with Russia", Trump said at a "commander in chief" forum on the decommissioned USS Intrepid, now a floating museum, here yesterday.

Trump on Wednesday raised eyebrows by saying that Russia's president was "far more" of a leader than Obama.

Asked how he would de-escalate tensions between the United States and Russian Federation if he's elected to the White House, Trump said, "I would have a very, very good relationship with Putin, and I think I would have a very, very good relationship with Russian Federation".

When asked about whether Moscow is trying to influence the presidential elections in the U.S., Trump said he believes it to be unlikely. Trump then argued that a number of Putin's widely condemned leadership decisions-such as his invasion of Ukraine and his support for Iran and Syrian president Bashar al-Assad-were tantamount to those of the US president.

"Well, I think the dishonesty of the media".

But the interview - conducted by Larry King on his show Politicking - ended on a unusual note after about 10 minutes, when King asked Trump, "On this immigration issue, what are your feelings about Mexican immigrants?"

Clinton held a news conference after convening her bipartisan national security advisers today in New York City, at the end of which, as she walked away, a reporter shouted a question as to whether she had a comment about Trump "accidentally" appearing on Russian TV. Trump and rival Hillary Clinton had taken questions from military veterans.

"In the full clip he said, 'That's not the system I agree with, but he's a strong leader there, '" Conway said.

Larry King's not buying the story advanced by Donald Trump's campaign manager, that Trump did not known an interview he did with King Thursday night was for RT, the Russian government-backed news channel.

"Every day that goes by - this just becomes more and more of a reality television show", she said. Yeah, Lauer failed miserably, and if last night is any preview of what we're going to see in the presidential debates, then we're in for a very long nine weeks here, because last night was all about optics, all about forcing candidates to be uncomfortable, and there was not one second of anything substantive discussed during that NBC News Commander-in-Chief Forum.

"I was against the war in Iraq because I said it would totally destabilize the MIddle East, which it has", Trump said.

The Republican also repeated an incorrect claim that he was opposed to the war with Iraq before the invasion.

He also criticized Hillary Clinton for responding to concerns about her handling of classified information on her private email server with "misdirection".

Trump also flirted with revealing what he had been learning in classified intelligence briefings given to him by USA officials because he is the Republican nominee.
