Trump Camp: Interview About Serbia Was a Hoax
The Trump campaign denies the allegations that Donald Trump has apologized for the US bombing Serbia, claiming his comments never happened.
The Hill reports:
Donald Trump’s campaign says an interview with a Serbian magazine that was widely reported never happened.
“Mr. Trump never gave an interview to the Serbian weekly magazine Nedeljnikas as falsely reported by the discredited Newsweek, nor was such an interview conducted through our Indiana State Director,” said Trump spokesman Jason Miller in a statement.
“This was a hoax and we look forward to receiving a formal retraction and apology from all involved.”
Newsweek Europe had reported that Trump said in the interview that bombing Serbia in ’90s had been a “big mistake.”
Hillary Clinton’s campaign had responded that the interview consisted of “talking points of his ally Vladimir Putin.”
The managing editor of the Serbian magazine told Newsweek that the interview was conducted by email through the Trump campaign’s Indiana director, Suzie Jaworowski.
Jaworowski also issued a statement denying that the interview ever took place.
“Regarding the article about a media interview with a Serbian politician and Mr. Trump via my email, this is completely false,” she said. “I have never served as a conduit to interview Mr. Trump for anyone.”
