2016 ELECTION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/RUSSIA INVESTIGATION/UKRAINE: “[T]he best day of my life in terms of business and life and everything was the day before I announced I’m running for president. Everything was good. The company was good, I had finished up a lot of jobs that were very successful. And then I said, ‘I want to do this.’ Now, I’m really glad I did, but I was treated very unfairly with fake Russia. Russia, Russia, Russia. Ukraine, Ukraine, all fake stuff. It’s a very vicious business…

There was this phony deal that I was devastated when I won, because I couldn’t have my life. I had a great life, I did.”
