Donald Trump’s penchant for friendliness toward brutal dictators who terrorize and kill their own people is a massive embarrassment to the United States. Trump and his administration keep claiming he talked to said dictators about their crimes, when he never actually did – and then getting exposed.
On Veterans Day weekend – a day we set aside to give thanks to the men and women who defend our freedom against such autocracy – Trump made this blunder not once but twice. Trump went out of his way to attack our intelligence officers and cover for Putin by citing words that Putin did not even say. “
But Trump was not done embarrassing our country. The icing on the cake is that Trump cannot even be bothered to have those shallow, perfunctory conversations he claims he had.
The American people have suffered enough indignities.
