Trump’s friendliness to Putin is very alarming.
Q: Is Putin a friend or foe?
TRUMP: I really can’t say right now. As far as I’m concerned, he’s a competitor. I think that getting along with RUssia, getting along with China, is a good thing.

As Trump says of Putin meeting: "Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all." a reminder:
-Putin annexed Crimea
-Putin invaded E. Ukraine
-Putin interfered in 2016 to aid Trump
-Putin supports Assad in Syria & targets civilians to do so
-Putin used nerve agent to murder in UK

If someone in the UK had died in a terrorist attack (even if at the hand of another British citizen), Donald Trump would have belligerently weighed in by now. But when someone in the UK, a NATO ally, dies as a result of an attack on British soil by Putin's government…crickets.
