Hillary Clinton was either lying to the FBI or she's "not an intelligent person," when it comes to what constitutes a classified document, Donald Trump said Friday after the agency released its report of an interview with the Democratic nominee, and he wants to know why her questioning wasn't recorded on tape.

According to the report, released late Friday afternoon, when FBI investigators asked the Democratic nominee how she did not notice emails marked with the letter "C" coming through her private server, she replied she didn't know what that meant.

She also told the FBI that she "did not pay attention to the level of classified and took all classified information seriously," according to the reports.

"With respect to these FBI notes, where she didn't know what the letter C was, now that's a lie, unless she's not an intelligent person," Trump told told Philadelphia NBC10's Lauren Mayk. "That's a total lie."

The GOP nominee continued that maybe it's true Clinton didn't know what the letter C was, as she failed her bar exams in Washington D.C. in 1973.

Trump also slammed the Clinton Foundation, saying it "is turning out to be a complete scam," but when it comes to her use of a private server, "she's put you and me and everybody in this country in great danger."

He then turned to the FBI, which took notes rather than recordings of its interview with the Democratic nominee.

"I think that the FBI is ashamed of themselves for their final adjudication of what happened," Trump said. "I think they're ashamed of themselves. Take a look, look at these notes. Why is it notes? Why don't they have tape recordings of this meeting? They're taking notes of this meeting. The notes are horrible, by the way, they're horrible."

The FBI, he continued, records most of its activities, but not its interview with Clinton.

"When they break into a mob den, it's tapes, right?" he told Mayk. "They use tapes for everything else, but they didn't use tapes to interview Hillary Clinton? Why isn't she on tape?"

Trump also commented about what he would do about his businesses, should he be elected, to avoid conflict with the White House.

"I would put myself in a trust and I would have no involvement," he said. " I've looked at everything. It's such an important job, an unbelievable amount of work to be done. The last thing I care about is my company. I'll have my kids run it, I'll put it in trust, and be done with it. Don't forget, as I bring the country back, as I create jobs, that's good for me, that's good for everybody."
