"And from day one I want fracking and everything else to get energy prices low and to create tremendous energy. We’re going to be self-supporting, we just about are now. We’re going to be exporting energy – he doesn’t want that. He would like Hillary where she wants to have windmills. He would much rather have that because energy prices would go up and Russia as you know relies very much on energy,” he continued.
“So there are many things that I do that are the exact opposite of what he would want. So what I keep hearing about that he would have rather had Trump, I think ‘probably not,’ because when I want a strong military, you know she wouldn’t have spent the money on military.”
Mr. Trump’s claim is likely untrue given the very public animosity displayed by Russian President Vladimir Putin towards Sec. of State Hillary Clinton. The former Sec. of State’s rebuke of Russia’s 2011 parliamentary elections allegedly inflamed the Russian dictator.
