BREAKING: Watch Trump Give Absolutely JAW DROPPING Response To Putin’s Expulsion of US Diplomats
To Russia, With Love, From Trump
There are so many “Wait, what?” moments that happen daily in the Donald Trump presidency.
And this? This is definitely one of the bigger ones.
Just last month, Russian leader Vladimir Putin, in a tiff over Congress’ decision to impose new sanctions on Russia, announced he would expel 755 US diplomatic staff. The sanctions were imposed to punish Russia for their interference in the 2016 election.
“We waited for quite a long time that, perhaps, something will change for the better, we held out hope that the situation would somehow change,” Putin said in an interview on state-run television. “But, judging by everything, if it changes, it will not be soon.”
The Trump White House response to the expulsion was initially muted, with the State Department releasing a statement.
“This is a regrettable and uncalled-for act. We are assessing the impact of such a limitation and how we will respond to it.”
But Donald Trump decided that the initial statement from the State Department wasn’t enough, because on Thursday, he finally responded to Putin’s retaliation against the sanctions.
By thanking him.
Trump Blows Kisses To Putin From His Golf Club
From his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club, Trump stated the following:
“I want to thank [Putin], because we’re trying to cut down our payroll, and as far as I’m concerned I’m very thankful that he let go of a large number of people because now we have a smaller payroll. There’s no real reason for them to go back. I greatly appreciate the fact that we’ve been able to cut our payroll of the United States. We’re going to save a lot of money.”
Do you hear that sound?
That’s the sound of American heads exploding while Russia laughs.

And yet, this is the guy that will scream “witch hunt!” when people question why he is so friendly to the Russians.

On a near-daily basis, Donald Trump reminds the world that he is unfit to be a leader. On Tuesday, he threatens nuclear war. On Thursday, he publicly blows kisses to Russia over the expulsion of American diplomats.
Perhaps we shouldn’t get so upset when he balks at talking to the media – especially if this is the sort of nonsense that is going to come out of his mouth.
