Clinton: Trump Not Running a Serious Campaign

Clinton: Putin-Praising Trump Isn't Running a Serious Campaign 1:53

Hillary Clinton said the 2016 presidential campaign is turning into reality TV and accused Donald Trump of not taking his White House bid seriously.

“Every day that goes by, this just becomes more and more of a reality television show. It's not, it's not a serious presidential campaign,” Clinton said during a press conference Friday.

The response came after being asked her reaction to Trump’s appearance on the state-funded Russian Television. Trump on Thursday appeared in an interview with Larry King on Russia Today, though his campaign said they believed the interview was only for King’s podcast.

The GOP presidential nominee has heaped praise on Russian leader Vladimir Putin and this week said he was a stronger leader than Obama.

“Can I say I was surprised? I'm not sure anything surprises us anymore,” Clinton said. “But I was certainly disappointed that someone running for president of the United States would continue this unseemly identification with and praise of the Russian president, including on Russian television.”
