Trump Hilariously Claims Russians Will Be ‘Fighting Hard’ For Democrats in Midterm Elections
Donald Trump is somehow claiming that the Russians will help Democrats if they get another chance to interfere with America’s elections.
I’m very concerned that Russia will be fighting very hard to have an impact on the upcoming Election. Based on the fact that no President has been tougher on Russia than me, they will be pushing very hard for the Democrats. They definitely don’t want Trump!

Just over a week ago, Trump held a press conference with Vladimir Putin where he took the Russian president’s side over U.S. intelligence findings about meddling in the 2016 election. This was the same press conference in which Putin said that he wanted Trump to become president instead of Hillary Clinton.
Since then, Trump has been slammed by critics for being wishy-washy and going back and forth on whether he accepts the intelligence assessments about Russia’s ongoing efforts to meddle with foreign democratic processes. In some of his most recent remarks, Trump accused former president Barack Obama of being a “total patsy” for Russia who never tried to stop their meddling “because it is all a big hoax.”
