Fox News Exclusive: Trump reignites feud with Hillary Clinton, bashes her recent attacks on Tulsi Gabbard, Jill Stein
President Trump reignited his feud with Hillary Clinton, taking aim at his 2016 rival for her recent suggestions that presidential hopeful Tulsi Gabbard was being groomed by the Kremlin and is a potential Russian agent. In an exclusive interview Monday on “Hannity,” Trump blasted the former secretary of state as part of a broader discussion with Sean Hannity about the Russia investigation, something he dismissed as a “phony scam.” “Then you have Hillary Clinton saying two days ago, ‘Tulsi Gabbard is a Russian asset,’ and that Jill Stein was a Russian agent,” Trump told Hannity. “I said, wait a minute, it took me two-and-a-half years, I wish she would have said that earlier because people… have realized she is crazy. She’s crazy.”
A growing number of 2020 Democrats have been coming to Gabbard’s defense and dismissing Clinton, as their war of words has somewhat distracted from House Dems’ impeachment push against Trump. Gabbard said Monday she’s open to a face-to-face meeting with Clinton.
During his exclusive interview on “Hannity” Monday, Trump also said he hoped Attorney General William Barr would look into potential ties between Ukraine, Clinton and the controversial anti-Trump dossier compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele. Earlier Monday, he vented his frustration about the criticisms leveled against him over recent controversies, including his Syria pullout decision, the location of the 2020 G-7 summit and the House’s “illegitimate” impeachment inquiry, while saying the “president of the United States should be allowed to run the country, not have to focus on this kind of crap.” Click here for more on our top story.

UK set to vote on Boris Johnson Brexit deal
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was set to put his Brexit deal to a vote in Parliament on Tuesday, in the first test of whether he has persuaded enough lawmakers to his plan to pull the U.K. out of the European Union. On Monday, Johnson’s bid for a new Brexit vote was shot down by the speaker of the House of Commons. Speaker John Bercow refused to allow it because lawmakers voted to delay approving the Brexit deal on Saturday, and parliamentary rules bar the same measure from being considered a second time during a session of Parliament unless something has changed. Johnson still hopes to get the bill approved by Parliament before Oct. 31, the date he promised Britain would leave the EU.
