Fmr. Fox News Analyst Ralph Peters: Trump Betrayed U.S. in Putin Summit, POTUS Was ‘Licking His Boots’

Former Fox News analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters is calling President Trump a traitor to America for groveling at Vladimir Putin‘s feet in Helsinki.

The ex-intelligence officer spoke to CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday night, and Peters got very direct by stating, “Putin pitched a shut out, Trump got beat up in the locker room.” He maintained that the summit was “a disgrace to the office of the presidency,” yet the manner in which he believes Trump supporters will nonetheless gloss over the meeting’s failures suggests that the president is somehow “indebted” to Putin.

“We have a president who appears not merely willing but eager to compromise our security, to betray our national interests, to betray our country,” Peters said. “I believe as an American who really cares about this country that we have a president who is betraying us.”

Peters went on to say that Americans “cannot have the least faith in their president,” saying there should be major concern about what Trump might’ve said or promised to Putin during their closed-door meetings before the widely-panned press conference.

“Today, we watched an American president grovel, grovel before the leader of the most hostile foreign power in the world, licking his boots.”
