Trump joked with Putin at the G20 about Russia interfering in the 2020 election and were all smiles when asked about Russia attacking US elections.
Trump Jokes With Putin About Russia Attacking The 2020 Election
Reporters asked Trump if he will tell Putin not to interfere in the 2020 election, and Trump jokingly responded, “Of course, I will. Don’t interfere in the 2020 election”, as both men shared smiles and laughs.
It was a disastrous moment for Trump and his reelection campaign.

Most Americans Already Believe That Trump Committed Crimes With Russia
A June Fox News poll found that a record number of voters think that Trump illegally coordinated with Russia in 2016. Voters already believe that Trump is guilty, and these seven almost eight seconds of video, confirm to them what they already believe to be true about Donald Trump.
The video will make a thousand Democratic ads. The audio isn’t necessary. The pictures of Trump laughing it up with the man who attacked the US election are enough to send voters who are outside of Trump’s base running.
Trump may have doomed himself to defeat because he couldn’t resist flaunting his crimes with Putin.
