“Make it happen,” Trump told him.

Trump denied that he has some business interests in Russia during his presidential campaign.

“On the campaign trail, Trump vehemently denied having any business interests in Russia. But behind the scenes, he was pushing the Moscow project, which he hoped could bring his company profits in excess of $300 million. The two law enforcement sources said he had at least 10 face-to-face meetings with Cohen about the deal during the campaign,” the news agency reads.
