Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump could meet with Vladimir Putin next week — and if it was arranged, Trump says he’d “enjoy doing it.”
“Well, I had heard that he wanted to meet with me,” Trump told NBC News on Saturday. “And certainly I am open to it. I would love to do that if he wants to do that.”
Putin is scheduled to attend the United Nations’ 70th General Assembly in New York City next Sunday. And the Trump Organization’s vice president, Michael Cohen, has hinted at a possible meeting of the minds while the Russian leader is in town.
“There’s a better than likely chance Trump may even meet with Putin when he comes here for the United Nations,” Cohen said Thursday on conservative talk show host Sean Hannity’s radio program.
“I would talk to [Putin], I would get along with him,” he said on the debate stage. “I believe — and I may be wrong, in which case I’d probably have to take a different path — but I would get along with a lot of the world leaders that this country is not getting along with.”
