You know, you would think that Trump might criticize Putin a few times just to keep up appearances, but nope he will not.
Courtesy of the BBC:
President Donald Trump has refused to condemn Russia over the poisoning of opposition figure Alexei Navalny, saying he has not seen proof.
He said the case was “tragic” but urged reporters to focus instead on China, which he said was a bigger threat to the world than Russia.
Nato and Germany say there is “proof beyond doubt” that Mr. Navalny was attacked with a Novichok nerve agent.
His team says he was poisoned on the Kremlin’s orders. Russia denies this.
Here is what Trump said:
“So I don’t know exactly what happened. I think it’s tragic, it’s terrible, it shouldn’t happen. We haven’t had any proof yet but I will take a look,” he said.
He also stopped short of criticizing Mr. Putin and said Beijing posed a greater threat.
“It is interesting that everybody’s always mentioning Russia and I don’t mind you mentioning Russia but I think probably China at this point is a nation that you should be talking about much more so,” he said.
Keep in mind that this is the guy who falls for almost every conspiracy theory on the internet, but when American allies report that Russia did a bad thing, that he simply refuses to accept.
At this point, I will be very depressed to learn that there are still some of you who do not realize that Donald Trump is Putin’s puppet.
However, if you still need convincing here is yet more evidence that Trump is totally compromised by the Kremlin.
