Trump attacks U.S. foreign policy, political press corps on state-owned Russian television network

Trump attacks U.S. foreign policy, political press corps on state-owned Russian television network
By Jose A. DelReal September 8 at 8:38 PM

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump criticized U.S. foreign policy and the American political press corps Thursday during an interview on RT America, a state-owned Russian television network.

In a wide-ranging interview that aired Thursday evening, Trump spoke with journalist Larry King about the presidential race, American intervention in Iraq and the Middle East, and the potential intrusion by Russian hackers into Democratic Party databases. RT, which airs in several countries in English and Russian, is funded by the Russian government; though it characterizes itself as independent, the network has been regularly accused of pro-Kremlin bias.

The interview came as Trump faced sustained criticism for praising Russian President Vladimir Putin, which he has regularly done on the campaign trail to the discomfort of many members of his own party, who have distanced themselves from the comments.

2. Trump is a Putin puppet

 

If he is elected Putin will be our de facto leader IMO.

3. The most mind blowing thing I'm seen in awhile is Trump supporters defending Russia Today

... formally known as Pravda. They're even more loyal to the Russian government than Russia's own citizens are

8. In what world is Larry King a "journalist"?

But I think he qualifies to interview Big Orange when Geraldo Rivera's not available.

9. At the core of all of this is racism. Trump is racist and so are his supporters.

Russia is a deeply racist country that openly demoralizes minorities. It's not a stretch that Trump supporters can look at Russia and find common ground; even admire them. They're easily manipulated and as far as I'm concerned un-American.

10. Maybe we ought to exile Trump and his Trumpanzees to Russia

They'll all be happy there and we'll be rid of the greatest threat to American democracy since the Civil War.
