Trump: I was being 'sarcastic' about encouraging Russian hacking

Trump: I was being 'sarcastic' about encouraging Russian hacking

After sparking furor with his comments encouraging Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's emails, Donald Trump told Fox News  on Thursday he was "being sarcastic." 

Trump insisted the content of the emails was more important than his comments about Russia.

On Wednesday, Trump said, "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing." 

This caused many people from both sides of the aisle to condemn his comments, including the Clinton campaign's response below. 

Rudy Giuliani, former New York City mayor and current Trump supporter, said on CNN Thursday that Trump was "joking" about Russia.
