WATCH: Hillary Clinton Tweets Clip of Her Warning About Donald Trump’s Close Relationship With Vladimir Putin

She tried to warn us.

President Donald Trump on Thursday tweeted a partial video clip of Hillary Clinton talking about a “strong Russia” while she was serving as Secretary of State.

“This is classic!” Trump said, implying that Democrats’ anti-Russia position was somehow hypocritical.

“We want very much to have a strong Russia because a strong, confident, prosperous, stable Russia is, we think, in the interests of the world,” Clinton said in the clip.

The president’s attempted swipe at his 2016 rival was met with immediate pushback by Clinton, who responded with a video of her warning Americans about Trump’s dangerously subordinate relationship with Russia.

“That’s a clip from when Medvedev was president,” Clinton replied in a tweet.

“What’s most striking about all of this, I would argue most important voters to consider, is the relationship between Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin,” the former secretary said in 2016. “Putin is a trained intelligence officer from the old KGB. He knows he can use flattery to get into Donald’s head, to make him a Kremlin puppet. And it seems to be working.”

In the excerpt shared by the president, Clinton was responding to a question about “America’s place in the modern world.”

“Is it a force aimed at supporting the world’s equilibrium? Or is it a force aimed at changing the status quo?” Russian-American journalist Vladimir Pozner asked Clinton in a 2010 interview.

Not once did Clinton concede anything to Putin.

“It’s both in this way, Vladimir. It is a force to sustain an equilibrium that permits countries and individuals to progress, to become more self-realizing,” Clinton replied. “I mean, we want very much to have a strong Russia because a strong, competent, prosperous, stable Russia is, we think, in the interests of the world.”

But at the same time, there are countries and places where the status quo is just not acceptable. Last summer, I went to the Democratic Republic of Congo. I went to Eastern Congo where 5.4 million people had been killed in the last 15 years, the greatest death toll since the second world war. We don’t want that status quo to be sustained.

Twitter also fired back at Trump for spreading “fake news.”

People are exaseperated with Trump.

Clinton famously referred to Trump as a “puppet” during the third presidential debate in 2016.
