U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday in a news conference in India, when asked about various reports of possible Russian interference in the 2020 presidential election, that he wants "no help from any country," and that he hasn't been given help from any country, adding he believes information about briefings to the House Intelligence Committee may have been leaked.
He also addressed a question about a 2014 tweet criticizing the Obama administration for bringing an American with Ebola back to the country, given his own administration has brought back more than 20 with COVID-19, saying the two viruses are like "day and night." He said Ebola was "very explosive" and had a "virtual 100 per cent" death rate, which he says is different than COVID-19.
He added that he had spoken with Prime Minister Narendra Modi about ongoing protests over a proposed citizenship law that some have called discriminatory towards Muslims, saying he believes Modi wants people to have religious freedom.
Asked about the guilty verdict of Harvey Weinstein, Trump said he was "never a fan" of the movie mogul, and was not a person he liked, but that given his travel around India had not paid much attention to the case.
Trump spoke about his visit to India and the possibility of a trade deal, saying like others deals it must be reciprocal.
