Russian President Vladimir Putin responded to a question about meddling in U.S. politics on Wednesday as he usually does: With a trolling joke.

“Is Russia, as Robert Mueller alleged, attempting to influence the 2020 elections in the United States?” NBC News correspondent Keir Simmons asked Putin during a forum in Moscow.

“I’ll tell you in a secret: Yes, we will definitely intervene,” Putin whispered into the mic. “It’s a secret, so that everybody can laugh and so we’ll go big. But don’t tell anyone, please.”
