Donald Trump again referred to a video he claims to have seen of the $400 million exchange between the U.S. and Iran — despite his campaign saying otherwise.
"You know, it was interesting because a tape was made," Trump said to supporters at a rally in Portland, Maine, today. "You know why the tape was given to us? Because they want to embarrass our country."
Trump initially discussed a video of the exchange in detail at a rally in Florida yesterday. However, Trump's campaign told ABC News today that Trump was referring to footage he saw on Fox News of the American prisoners released in Geneva.
Furthermore, multiple senior government officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, have cast doubt on the existence of such a video.
Trump's rally was briefly interrupted by protesters carrying pocket-size Constitutions — an act of solidarity with the father of fallen soldier Capt. Humayun Khan, Khizr Khan, with whom Trump has been feuding. The demonstrators were ejected from the venue.
"I sort of missed my protesters," Trump joked.
