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.
- The judge who sentenced former Stanford swimmer Brock Turner for sexual assault will no longer hear criminal cases.
- Hillary Clinton came closer than ever to attacking Donald Trump's character and tied her opponent to the "alt-right" movement.
- The death toll from Italy's earthquake rose to 250 people amid efforts to dig out residents still trapped in rubble.
