Republican White House hopeful Donald Trump is campaigning in Iowa Thursday, but the buzz is all about what he said about a faraway nation Wednesday.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports:

During a news conference in Florida, he called on Russia to hack Democrat Hillary Clinton to find her missing emails.

This morning, he defended himself on 'FOX & Friends':

(Trump) "This person deleted 33,000 emails illegally. You look at that. And when I'm being sarcastic (host) .. Of course I'm being sarcastic."

Trump also said he thinks the U.S. should get along better with Russia, and that President Vladamir Putin will respect him, so the nation won't be doing things like buzzing U.S. ships if he's elected.
