Donald is lying about his ties to Russian president Vladamir Putin, and MSNBC just nailed him for it.
For days, the Republican nominee has been trying to dispel reports that he and Vladamir Putin are linked through Russian oligarchs that are aligned with Putin.
Not only is Trump is debt to Russian businessmen, some of his own campaign staffers have ties to Russia as well. Trump has been trying for three decades to build a Trump Tower in Moscow but has repeatedly failed. Gaining the presidency and becoming Putin’s puppet would definitely help Trump achieve that goal.
Trump has also made policy suggestions that align with Russian interests, including Trump changing the GOP platform to support lifting sanctions placed on Russia because of the invasion of Ukraine and Trump threatening to pull America out of NATO, which would embolden Putin to be more aggressive in Eastern Europe.
Trump has since denied even knowing Putin and claims he has nothing to do with Russia despite evidence to the contrary.
But MSNBC’s Thomas Roberts called out Trump on Thursday and he brought video footage of an interview he conducted with Trump in Moscow three years ago in which the mogul clearly brags that he has a “relationship” with Putin.
ROBERTS: “Do you have a relationship with Vladimir Putin? A conversational relationship or anything that you feel you have sway or influence over his government?”
TRUMP: “I do have a relationship and I can tell you that he’s very interested in what we’re doing here today He’s probably very interested in what you and I am saying today, and I’m sure he’s going to be seeing it in some form.”
Here’s the video via MSNBC.
So either Donald Trump was lying then or he is lying now. Either way, he’s a liar who should never be allowed to set a single toe inside the White House. Because if Trump has a relationship with Putin, it’s a risk the United States cannot afford to take.
