Cheato is promising that he will win favors from Putin if elected

He's saying on his lies social that Putin will release the American journalist Evan Gershkovich for him if he wins the election. I'm almost never shocked by anything this person says and always assume that everything he says is a grift or a lie. So this is too, of course.

But to me it's a scary new turn where he is openly bragging about his ties with Putin, who has shown himself to be much worse than we knew about in 2016. He used to just be afraid to criticize Putin, but now he sees benefit in bragging about their friendship.

I wish his insane comments like this and many many others would be reported on seriously instead of ignored.

other heads of state try to win favor with he/she. trump running his stupid mouth about winning favor with Putin shows he's not gotten any wiser after years of being at the pinnacle of US politics.

Still a bloviating moron who thinks he's the smartest person in the room...except for Putin.

it should. CNN runs puff pieces about his "rally" in the Bronx instead of what he's actually saying and promising.

Reagan cut a deal with the Ayatollah not to release the 40+ American hostages until he was inaugurated. And lo and behold, they were.
