President Trump has just made what many will consider to be his most outrageous statement to date. A statement so observably false, that one can only conclude that Trump is reaching his breaking point, as the Russia collusion scandal further causes chaos inside the White House. It’s so bad in the White House, that Trump has even been pictured bowing in prayer in the Oval Office. The photo below went public today.
Today President Trump claimed and made an argument that Russian President Vladimir Putin would have preferred that Hillary Clinton won the election, rather than himself. We barely need to discuss the patently false nature of this assertion. We’ve all seen with our own eyes, that Russia meddled in the 2016 campaign to help get Trump elected, and to damage Hillary Clinton.
“If Hillary had won, our military would be decimated. Our energy would be much more expensive. That’s what Putin doesn’t like about me,” Trump said in an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network founder Pat Robertson, “And that’s why I say, why would he want me? Because from day one I wanted a strong military — he doesn’t want to see that.”
President Trump further claimed in the interview, that Putin “probably” did not want him to become president, because of his push to expand U.S. oil and gas production, which he said could hurt Russian energy exports. “So what I keep hearing about that he would have rather had Trump, I think ‘probably not,’” Trump said.
President Trump has refused to accept the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia meddled in the 2016 election to help him and hurt Clinton, despite most people in his administration agreeing with U.S. intelligence.
It’s hard to imagine any reason that Putin would have preferred Trump over Clinton, as Clinton made it clear that she was ready and willing to put a stop to Putin’s undermining of our democracy. We really don’t even need to entertain the President here, this is so ridiculous that it would be beneath us to list out all the ways in which his statement is completely false.
President Trump must be doing this out of desperation. This is like a child putting their hands over their eyes to pretend that something happening right in front of them, isn’t really happening. But this scandal is real, and has been given a full jolt of life thanks to the President’s own son, just yesterday. The walls are closing in, confirmed by this desperate statement Trump made today.
