While he was in the process of denying any connection to the Russian government during a press conference in Florida, Donald Trump asked Putin to hack the United States to find Hillary Clinton’s missing emails.
Trump said, “If it is Russia, which it’s probably not, nobody knows who it is, But if it is Russia, it’s really bad for a different reason, because it shows how little respect they have for our country. When they would hack into a major party and get everything, but it would be interesting. I will tell you this. Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you find the thirty thousand emails that are missing. I think you’ll probably be rewarded mightily by our press. Let’s see if that happens next.”
Donald Trump is about to get national security briefings, and he just invited the Russian government to hack the US government in an attempt to find Hillary Clinton’s emails.
Instead of proving that there was no relationship between his campaign and the Russian government, Trump confirmed it. Not only is there a relationship between Trump and Putin, but the Republican nominee is asking for favors on live national television.
If there was any doubt that Comrade Donald is working with Putin’s Russia, it was confirmed during the press conference.
Republicans thought that they were nominating a strongman, but what they’ve got is Putin’s puppet.
