Trump Sides With A Foreign Hostile Power Against The United States of America
Dear sweet Jeebus.
I never thought I'd see the day when an incoming American president would take the side of a foreign leader's reaction to sanctions for interfering in our presidential election and at the same time denigrate our own American president.
In fact, that's what Trump did today. He praised the ex-head of the Communist KGB as "smart," and slandered the United States of America by doing so. Some people would call that madness. I call it treasonous.
The Russians must have gawd-knows what sort of intelligence on Trump to make him say such an unprecedented statement against the United States of America.
Think about that. The in-coming president-elect just slandered the United States of America in favor of a Russian thug and murderer.
President-elect Donald Trump made a stark departure from members of his own party Thursday by praising Russian President Vladimir Putin for his response to U.S. sanctions against the country.
Trump hailed Putin's decision not to respond to the Obama administration's measures -- meant to counter cyberattacks against the U.S. government and Democratic officials -- as a "great move," adding, "I always knew he was very smart!"

Trump 'pinned' the tweet to remain at the top of his Twitter feed and even received an approving retweet from the Russian Embassy in the United States' Twitter account.
The tweet follows a two-sentence statement Thursday night reacting to the sanctions, where Trump repeated his call for the country to "move on" while agreeing to meet with intelligence agencies next week for a full briefing.
