President Trump told Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs on Wednesday that having a positive relationship with Russia "would be a good thing, not a bad thing."

"I don't think there's anything wrong with — you know they are a power, they're a nuclear power. I think we could have a good relationship," Trump said. "I think that North Korean situation would be easier settled."

  • On the wall: "You think of a wall as a wall. But honestly you do need some see through ability... if you do pure concrete which is a wall then you can't see who's on the other side."
  • On "fake news:" "I'll say to my wife, 'Oh, tonight, I'm going to enjoy watching television because I did great, and wait until you see this.' And then, they put it on and it's like — oh, that's not so good. They are fake news."
  • On Clinton and the Russia dossier: "So, it's very interesting, she denied it, her own people denied it. Everybody denied it and now they're sort of scooting around trying to figure out what to say."
