Trump’s interview with the NYT is somethin’. A thread with some excerpts:…
Twice, Trump lies to @maggieNYT, and she corrects him, and then he just admits he was wrong. This happens a lot: when he’s challenged, he just concedes.
Trump makes a new claim about Trump Tower Moscow: he wasn’t lying when he said he wasn’t doing business with Russia because that wasn’t business, just a “free” letter of intent to do business.

Trump to the NYT on China Vice-Premier Liu He: "The man from China, the vice — the second man in China, essentially, they call him the vice premier, like the vice president, but he’s the second man, strong second man. He made the nicest statements today."…
