Trump Defends “Killer” Putin On National TV: “We’ve Got A Lot Of Killers – You Think Our Country’s So Innocent?”

Zero Hedge

In a Fox News interview set to air at 4pm on Sunday, just ahead of the Superbowl, and which is sure to unleash a fresh firestorm of accusations that president Trump is a Kremlin puppet, the US president will defend Vladimir Putin on national TV, saying he respects the Russian leader and accusing the US of not being as innocent as it may seem. 

In the interview, Bill O’Reilly asked if Trump respects Russian President Vladimir Putin, to which the he replied, “I do respect him. Well, I respect a lot of people, but that doesn’t mean I’ll get along with them.”

After O’Reilly asks why, Trump answers: “He is the leader of his country. I say it’s better to get along with Russia than not, and if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS – which is a major fight – and the Islamic terrorism all over the world, that’s a good thing. Will I get along with him? I have no idea.”

O’Reilly pressed Trump on his statement, saying, “But he’s a killer though. Putin’s a killer.”

Trump shrugged the comment off, saying: “There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country is so innocent?”

As RT reminds us, it is not the first time that Trump has made such comments when journalists question his stance regarding the Russian leader. At the end of 2015, the host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe told Trump that Putin “kills journalists,” to which the unfazed then-presidential candidate replied, “I think that our country does plenty of killing, too, Joe.”

“I’ve always felt fine about Putin. He’s a strong leader. He’s a powerful leader,” Trump added.

At the end of January, Putin and Trump held their first official phone call, which, according to the Kremlin, was “good and constructive.” “Over the past years, the lack of mutual respect became the main reason for the deterioration of relations,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov added. Another important thing is that Washington is prepared for dialogue, the spokesman concluded.

“This is what President Putin called for rather consistently but where unfortunately he did not see reciprocity over the past years,” Peskov said.

Earlier in January, however, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov emphasized that the first meeting between Putin and Trump may “happen in months to come,” not “in a matter of weeks.” Peskov also said, “it is maybe the biggest mistake on the part of Western analysts to think that Trump is ‘our man.’ He is an American man.”

  1. I’ve never seen the media nitpick a president and what he says quite like Trump. It’s amazing. The way the media spins these things is what’s actually causing all of this division and hate.

  2. WHEN ;YOU HEAR TRUMP SPEAK ITS ALL LOGIC, AND THEN COMPARE IT TO OBAMA AND HILLARY WHO SO WANTED TO START A WAR.—PUTTING PEOPLES LIVES IN DANGER, THAT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE AT ALL.!!

  3. Wait…. what?
    Intellectual honesty from a President?
    Isn’t that what put him in office?
    Isn’t it what we, the patriot community have questioned over many years of The Shrub and the Black Caesar?
    As our liberties have degraded since the Patriot act, patriots have been concerned that our government had taken a bad turn.
    The confessions of an economic hit man, put it pretty succinctly, that we are an empire of money, we want to be The Hegemon of the World, at the extreme cost of its citizenry. Globalization is, and was, the FedCorpGov’s policy for distributing its power through money around the world by ‘spreading the wealth’ and putting other countries into unpayable debt. Then, we own them, or rather, our corporate masters do.
    If they don’t go along, they died. By Black Op or Drone, or outright invasion(Iraq anyone?) How many innocents have we killed, ah, but it doesn’t matter because they are ‘dirt people’, right?
    Trump, is calling out The Elite… on ALL levels.
    He is a Man on a Mission… but that mission is also practical politics, or what used to termed; realpolitik
    Why would McShame, and Graham, and The Elite want to start WWIII with a man who has nuclear missiles?
    Who benefits from that?
    Only The Elite. Trump knows that.
    I quit listening to the Media, it is nothing but background noise in the Washington DC echo chamber.
    Trump chooses life, for Americans, and looks like he will go after Islam with a purpose.
    Putin also knows, Islam is the Enemy of the world.

    Read Revelation 10, tell me, what is ‘The Little Book’?
    “sweet words on the tongue, like honey, that grow bitter in the belly”. The most perfect definition of political correctness I’ve ever read… now, who allies themselves with Islam? The Left, Globalists? Now, white nationalism(being a red blooded American), is cursed by them? Do they understand they are committing political suicide? Or are things getting simply darker and more sinister… CWII anyone? Is Trump simply pushing buttons in a national chess match? Causing them to reveal their true selves? Hmm.

    The Last Trump said he is just a ‘messenger’, did he not? We heard that message; SLEEPERS AWAKEN, and delivered him to power. Now, it is our job, to understand that mission, and that mission, is to defeat the evil ones, those who worship death, and they are the Left, those who live by coveting, that is the foundation of the left, and, so is Islam. They are united by The Little Book, and the Doctrine of Envy and Coveting what is yours. They are a global Beast System… a system of animals, that the left invites in to live in their house, look at Europe, and this is what the Trump fears… animals defecating on the carpets, and raping and killing the inhabitants of the house, yet the left ignores it, and thinks they can make friends with those that want to kill or subjugate them…

    Russia is now, thanks to Putin, a Christian nation again… Russia is paranoid, and always has been, because they have always been surrounded by enemies. All they want is respect, and our war mongers, the Globalists, want chaos, from sea to shining sea, and from continent to continent, so that only They, can restore order from Chaos; Ordo Ab Chao.
    White nationalists, patriots, Christians, no matter how the leftists denigrate us, must be met with sincere resolve, we must either come together, or we will become individual victims. These attacks by the left are only intensifying, soon they will become violent. We must stand in the gate, or be defeated in our own land. God gave US this land, and we weren’t perfect in its management, the cups of karma are full to over flowing by our own ignorance and inaction, but that doesn’t mean we cannot recognize our imperfections, try to put The Elite out of business and help to make America Great again, by making a stand;

    A Stand For Trump.

    It should be obvious now, that he will be fought at all levels… and will need all the continuing support and even active actions he can muster. Be part of the solution, or part of the problem, there is no longer the option to sit home and watch. The Beast System doesn’t want Trump, or us. Know that we are their enemy, who have declared war in the street, and prepare accordingly. Know that they only win, when good men do nothing…
