In February, Bill O’Reilly told Trump during a Fox News Channel interview that Russian President Vladimir Putin “is a killer.” Trump replied: “There are a lot of killers. We have a lot of killers. Well, you think our country is so innocent?”
On Thursday, Farkas floated a theory, without citing evidence, that the president may actually owe money to Russia, something that could be influencing his posture toward the government.
“The influence these Russians have on him could be greater because of these business ties and because he may owe them money and of course the issue of his campaign manager and all the work he was doing and whether he was indebted to Russians or not,” she said.
