Larry King interviewed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on his show, “PoliticKING,” Thursday night, which was carried on the Kremlin-backed news outlet, Russia Today (RT).
But the Trump campaign is saying it did not know the interview would appear on RT.
“Mr. Trump recorded a short interview with Larry King for his podcast as a favor to Mr. King,” the campaign said in a statement to Business Insider. “What Larry King does with the interview content is up to him, we have nothing to do with it.”
Similarly, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said on CBS that “nobody said it would be on Russian TV.”
King’s production company, Ora Media, sent Business Insider the following statement: “RT America is one of several dozen companies who license [PoliticKING] and other Ora programs for distribution around the world. A visit to www.Ora.tv will provide several examples of our content.”
