President says 'I'm not pro-Russia', hits ex-CIA chief for 'treasonous' slam in Tucker Carlson interview


I think Russia is nowhere near as big a threat to the United States as the old Soviet Union.

"I think Brennan is a very bad guy and if you look at it a lot of things happened under his watch," Trump told Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Monday. "I think he's a very bad person."
