President Donald Trump lashed out at his predecessors on Saturday.

Trump followed-up on his attacks on the FBI and New York Times with a broadside against previous presidents.

"I have been far tougher on Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton," Trump claimed. "Maybe tougher than any other President."

"At the same time, and as I have often said, getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing," he continued.

"I fully expect that someday we will have good relations with Russia again," he added.
