Trump Launches Attack Over Russian Meddling on Day of Putin Summit

Last week, President Donald Trump made news when attacked NATO and European countries on Twitter ahead of and during meetings with those countries. Today, on the day he is meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump went to Twitter again and brought up Russia’s interference with the 2016 election.

But unlike with NATO, President Trump didn’t bring up a contentious issue to attack those with whom is meeting, but instead to attack the United States.

“Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity,” he said, “and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!”

Our fault. Not theirs. Our foolishness. Our stupidity.

The Blame America tweet came shortly after this mess:

“President Obama thought that Crooked Hillary was going to win the election, so when he was informed by the FBI about Russian Meddling, he said it couldn’t happen, was no big deal, & did NOTHING about it. When I won it became a big deal and the Rigged Witch Hunt headed by Strzok!”

That one blamed Obama, Hillary, and Strzok for screwing up the investigation into Russian meddling, but was apparently still a little too “blamey” of Russia. The follow-up above made it clear it was America at fault in any bad relationship with the murderous Vladimir Putin and Russia.

Don’t forget that Russia is not our enemy, after all. The EU is. Also the FBI is our foe, President Obama is our foe.

But the problems with Russia? That’s on us, says Trump.
