Fox News’ Shepard Smith went off on Donald Trump today for his capitulation to Vladimir Putin during their joint press conference in Helsinki.
Smith began his Monday summit coverage by reviewing the avalanche of criticism Trump has received so far by drawing a US-Russia moral equivalency and siding with Putin’s insistence that Russia didn’t meddle in the 2016 elections. He also took a critical tone as he noted that Trump used the presser to go after his political enemies instead of acknowledging the American intelligence community’s findings and indictments against multiple Russian nationals.
“There’s no question, none at all, from [Trump’s] own employees, his own intelligence services, and members of his own party,” Smith said. “Russia interfered in our 2016 election and is interfering in the democratic process right now.”
