Trump says he would 'take' foreign information on rival in 2020 election

Trump says he would 'take' foreign information on rival in 2020 election

Washington, Jun 13 (UNI) US President Donald Trump has said that he would take information about his 2020 election rivals even if it comes from a foreign government.

During an interview with ABC News, Trump on Wednesday denied that taking information from a foreign government will count as meddling in an election.

When asked whether if he thought his son should have called the FBI when he received one such email in 2016, he said,'Give me a break, life doesn't work that way", reported BBC.

However, the president later said he would "maybe" contact the FBI if he were offered information and he "thought there was something wrong".

Mr Trump also dismissed concerns that this would amount to electoral interference by a foreign power.

"It's not an interference, they have information, I think I'd take it. If I thought there was something wrong I'd go, maybe, to the FBI - if I thought there was something wrong', he added.

Allegations of collusion with foreign powers - specifically, Russia - have consumed Mr Trump's presidency so far, prompting a a lengthy investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Eventually, Mr Mueller's report concluded that there was no evidence proving that Mr Trump colluded with Russia.

However, his political rivals are still asking questions.

Mr Trump's latest statements came the same day his son, Donald Jr, was questioned by US senators over his connection with Russia.
