President Donald Trump seemed to come to the defense of one of his Democratic rivals Monday after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accused Russia of "grooming" that candidate as an agent.

"She's accusing everyone of being a Russian agent," Trump said of Clinton. "These people are sick. There's something wrong with them."

Trump's comments came during a cabinet meeting at the White House that was partially open to the media.

Last week, Clinton referenced a female Democrat running for president who Russia seems to be targeting. She did not mention a name, but it's assumed that she was talking about Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, who has garnered support among Russian online trolls.

"I'm not making any predictions, but I think they've got their eye on someone who's currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate. She's the favorite of the Russians," said Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 election and who insists the Russians have compromising material on him.

Clinton also said Jill Stein, who ran for president as a Green Party candidate in 2012 and 2016, is a "Russian asset."

"Yeah, she's a Russian asset — I mean, totally. I don't know who it's going to be, but I will guarantee you they will have a vigorous third-party challenge in the key states that they most needed," Clinton said.
