Donald Trump To O’Reilly: “You Think Our Country Is So Innocent?”

President Donald Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly something quite defensive in response to a comment by the TV host. The interview will be aired today, prior to the Superbowl.

You think our country is so innocent?

Donald Trump said the above to Fox News host Bill O’Reilly in an interview. The quote that will soon be plastered on the front pages of every major newspaper in America is in response to a comment O’Reilly made about Russian President Vladamir Putin, who Donald Trump has defended in the past.

He once again reinforced the perception that he respects Putin, and that he admires him.

I do respect him. Well, I respect a lot of people, but that doesn’t mean I’ll get along with them,”

O’Reilly pressed Trump even further about Putin, saying that “Putin is a killer.”

Trump didn’t back down, instead he compared Putin’s reputation to that of the United States.

There are a lot of killers. We have a lot of killers. Well, you think our country is so innocent?

Trump also said that he thinks the United States is “better” off getting along with Russia than not.

If Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS, which is a major fight, and Islamic terrorism all around the world, major fight. That’s a good thing.

It wasn’t the first time that Trump touched on the subject of Putin’s political killings.

Note: Donald Trump isn’t fazed at all by Putin’s journalistic murdering? Even the notion of it?

During an interview with Morning Joe in 2015, Trump was pressed on the same issue by Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough.

He kills journalists that don’t agree with him,”

Trump retorted with an answer almost identical with the one he gave to O’Reilly.

Well, I think that our country does plenty of killing too, Joe,”

This week, an eminent Putin critic had symptoms of poisoning for the second time since 2015. Republican Senator John McCain (Arizona), who is openly anti-Russia, tweeted newspaper editorials that call for the United States to formally denounced the incident as an act of political retribution. He called both editorials “a must-read.”
