President Donald Trump meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin during their bilateral meeting at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany July 7, 2017.
Vladimir Putin would be better off with Hillary Clinton in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump said in an interview with The Christian Broadcasting Network.
Trump told CBN, in an interview published Wednesday, that his focus on defense spending and energy is “what Putin doesn’t like about me.” The president also asserted that Clinton “wouldn’t have spent money on the military.”
Regarding the energy sector, Trump told CBN: “When I want tremendous energy, we’re opening up coal, we’re opening up natural gas, we’re opening up fracking, all the things that he would hate, but nobody ever mentions that.”
