Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Thursday that he was not being serious when he invited Russian hackers to launch a cyber-attack against his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, The Hill reported.
“Of course I’m being sarcastic,” Trump argued in footage aired on Fox News. “They don’t even know if it’s Russia, if it’s China, if it’s somebody else. Who knows who it is?”
Trump set off another round of criticism when he said Russia would be “rewarded by our press” if hackers dug into Clinton’s email server during a press conference.
“The real problem is what was said on those emails from the Democratic National Committee,” he told Fox. “It’s disgraceful. They talk about religion. They talk about race. They talk about all sorts of things, including women.”
Trump neglected to mention his own habit of “talking about women,” including Fox host Megyn Kelly, earlier in the campaign.

Modi tells Xi summit will launch ‘new era’ for India and China
India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi said Saturday that his summit with Chinese leader Xi Xinping would launch a "new era" between the neighbours who are seeking to overcome troublesome differences.
Modi and Xi strolled along a pristine Bay of Bengal beach and held one-on-one talks overlooking the ocean before their delegations sat down to official negotiations at the historic resort town of Mahbalipuram, south of Chennai.
The two leaders are meeting for the second time in a year in a bid to ease tensions over border disputes, the troubled Kashmir region and China's domination of trade between their huge economies.
Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet
Hours after Donald Trump attacked Sen. Mitt Romney for being critical of his call for the Chinese to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the president was back for another round, calling for the Utah Republiocan to be impeached.
Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
Trump claimed ‘inequality is down’ — one day later federal data showed the exact opposite is true
