    ...“Can you give me one more example, one other example of anywhere where President Trump has ever expressed concern about corruption?” he asked. “Russia, Saudi Arabia, Israel — is there any example you can point to where President Trump expressed any concern about corruption?”


    “Sure I can, if you want me to send you a long list…” Lankford began.


    “Just give me a couple examples,” Tapper pressed.


    “You’re trying to put me on the spot to be able to talk about international world policy!” a defensive Lankford shot back.
    GOP senator flops hard when CNN’s Tapper asks him to name one case where Trump cared about foreign corruption
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Tapper should have asked for the list, not asking makes it look like he just wanted a quick, public statement and really doesn't care about the facts.
    Lankford is the wrong Republican to go head to head with, he isn't a Kevin McCarthy. Lankford is smart and well-spoken.

    Yes, that would have been even better. But Lankford clearly let himself be cornered on that one.

    Lankford obviously doesn't care for the tactics that were being used on him. But as to the question--name one other country about which President Trump has ever expressed concern about corruption--there are many. Included in that list are Gambia, Serbia, Venezuela, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Nicaragua, and Uzbekistan among others.

    Being asked to substantiate his claim was, in Lankford's mind, a dirty trick. Who asks politicians to support their claims the way Tapper did? Next people will be expecting them tell the truth.

    So far, no one has been able to show us one. But that's the way things go. I do remember Trump being all worked up because the U.S. and our allies pressured Ukraine to remove a corrupt prosecutor. I remember Trump being infuriated that it was a crime for U.S. companies to bribe government officials.

    Is that what you meant?
