Trump Says He's Never Met Russian President After Boasting About Meeting During GOP Debate

Donald Trump flip-flops on whether or not he ever met Russian President Putin

Remember last fall during a Republican primary debate Donald Trump told the world how he would have a good relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin because they "were both on '60 Minutes' the same night:

“I got to know him very well because we were both on 60 Minutes. We were stablemates, and we did very well that night,” he said.

Actually, Trump's appearance on 60 Minutes was taped at his NYC home, and Putin's segment was taped in Russia - just saying.

But today, Trump flip-flopped on the story.

Via Mediaite:

After months of praising Russian leader Vladimir Putin and bragging about having once met, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump claimed Tuesday that they had never even met at all.

“I have nothing to do with Russia,” Trump maintained in an interview with CBS’s Miami affiliate. “I never met Putin, nothing to do with Russia.”

Here's the interview from today - check the 1:27 mark:
