Trump and his partners made the video to premier at something called the Moscow Millionaire’s Festival—apparently an event for the aforementioned millionaires to promote the latest luxury goods.

And what could be more luxurious than Trump vodka? The very subtle video features the word “money,” images of Trump, the Kremlin, a tiger, and Lenin, among other images that scream, “Wait, what?!”

"The issue with her is that they wanted to and were inclined to get her out of the way, unless she was willing to play ball, unless she was willing to acquiesce in this sort of irregular channel and the goals of the irregular channel that Ambassador Taylor described," said Baker.
