In an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network’s president Pat Robertson, Donald Trump said Vladimir Putin would have preferred Hillary Clinton in the White House.
“If Hillary had won, our military would be decimated. Our energy would be much more expensive. That’s what Putin doesn’t like about me.”
“And that’s why I say, why would he want me? Because from day one I wanted a strong military — he doesn’t want to see that,” Trump added.
One must wonder who Trump thinks he’s fooling? His base is already behind him no matter what he does, but they’re in the minority.
Trump’s assertions follow a series of devastating New York Times reports showing that his eldest son, Donald Jr., agreed to a meeting in June of 2016 with a Russian lawyer connected to the Kremlin — who promised dirt on the Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
It’s been suggested by some in the media, as well as by congressional representatives, that Donald Jr. may have committed treason by taking that meeting; and it’s clear the Trump desperately wants to change the narrative.
