Philippe Reines stood in as Donald Trump during debate preparation for Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election. He tweeted a video showing him jokingly trying to force a hug on Clinton while they practiced for a debate in September.
He attached a low-quality video of Clinton and him practicing introductions for the debate. He walked up to her and tried to hug her while she jokingly ran away.
Reines' tweet comes after a friend of former FBI Director James Comey, recalled to news outlets that Comey was reluctant to accept an invitation to the White House earlier this year because he didn't want even an appearance of a personal relationship with Trump.
