Once again going out of his way to defend Vladimir Putin, Republican President Donald Trump, in a sit-down with Fox News on Sunday, “appeared to place the US and Russia on the same moral plane,” according to The Guardian.
When informed by host Bill O’Reilly that Putin was ‘a killer’, Trump replied:
“There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country’s so innocent?”
“Trump’s respect for and willingness to work with Putin was a familiar theme during an election that the US intelligence agencies believe their Russian counterparts sought to influence on Trump’s behalf.”
