Trump Claims Putin Is ‘Doing a Better Job’ Than Obama

Donald Trump declared Thursday that Russia’s Vladimir Putin is a more effective president than Barack Obama, according to The Hill.

“He’s certainly doing a better job than Obama is, that’s all,” the Republican presidential nominee said on Fox News. “He’s a better leader than Obama because Obama’s not a leader.”

Trump called for more U.S. cooperation with the former Soviet Union. “Now look, you have to understand, Putin — if we could get along with Russia, I think that would be a good thing, not a bad thing,” the candidate said. “We don’t get along with Russia. We practically don’t get along with too many.”

Trump told Fox News host Brian Kilmeade that Russian planes recently buzzed U.S. ships because Obama is weak. “You know why they do that?” he asked. “They have no respect for our leader. They have zero respect for our leader. That’s why they do that.” The nominee boasted that if he was the president, “I don’t think they’d be doing that; I don’t think they’d be doing that for one minute.”

The billionaire businessman disclosed three years ago that he had “a relationship” with Putin. In November, he said he and the Russian president met when they were guests on CBS’ “60 Minutes.” However, during a recent press conference, Trump remarked: “I never met Putin. I don’t know who Putin is.”
