Trump Reiterates Desire To Work with Putin Against Terror

Feb. 6,, 2017 (EIRNS)—Fox News released a preview of Bill O’Reilly’s interview with President Trump ahead of its airing in which Trump was asked if he respected Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“Well, I respect a lot of people but that doesn’t mean I’m going to get along with him,” Trump said. “He’s a 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 Islamic terrorism all over the world—that’s a good thing. Will I get along with him? I have no idea.”

“But he’s a killer though,” O’Reilly said. “Putin’s a killer.”

“There are a lot of killers,” Trump responded. “We’ve got a lot of killers. What do you thin—our country’s so innocent?”
