Donald Trump said during the debate that he got to know Vladimir Putin when they were “stablemates” on 60 Minutes.
“I got to know him very well, because we were both on 60 minutes, we were stablemates and we did very well that night. You know that,” he said.
This struck some as a little strange.
Trump and Putin appeared in separate, taped pieces for 60 Minutes in an episode that aired on Sept. 27. Putin was interviewed in Russia, Trump was interviewed in New York.
60 Minutes is a taped broadcast, and it is unlikely Trump and Putin would have shared a green room.
As Trump said, the episode did bring in big ratings.
