During a call-in to 'Fox & Friends' that lasted an hour, Trump says next call is with Putin.
Impeached toddler president Donald Trump says he and his boss, Russian crimelord-president Vladmir Putin, will talk on the phone today about trade.
While babbling on the Fox News show 'Fox and Friends,' Trump suggested that he has plans to lift U.S. sanctions against Russia.
“The whole [Russia] thing turned out to be a hoax,” Trump said.
Yes, America, this is really happening. Remember, Trump promised that Putin would be coming for an official state visit, to Washington, DC, in September. Buckle up.
Just moments earlier on Fox & Friends, when asked about disinformation campaigns pushed by Russia, Iran and China, Trump shrugged it off as commonplace.
"They do it and we do it," Trump said. "Hey, every country does it."
Who initiated the phone call? For what stated purpose? Will we know what was said?
.@kilmeade repeatedly presses Trump on Putin, reminding the president of the literal murder the Kremlin has gotten away with.
"I'm not saying that they're perfect," Trump says.
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt cuts in and ends that line of questioning.

President Trump says his next phone call this morning will be to Vladimir Putin and they will discuss the price of oil and trade. He says the Russians very much wants to trade with the US. (The Russians want to get out from under US sanctions.)

"I've been tougher on Russia than any president in the history of the country."
He says Putin will probably ask him to lift sanctions, "he's been asking that for two years," but he, Trump, put sanctions on, and he's "not the soft guy."
