Sally Yates just sent a strong message to Trump on his romance with Putin
Donald Trump is embracing Putin without any shame. It also means he has no respect for American institutions and the people of America. Former Attorney General Sally Yates blasts Trump for his unpatriotic acts in Vietnam and the support he has extended to Putin for his continuous denial that Russia did not interfere in the 2016 election.
Sally Yates tweeted “POTUS embraces Putin yet again telling world he believes former KGB agent’s denial of attack on our election over our own Intel public servants, calling them ‘political hacks.’ Disturbing and shamelessly unpatriotic, on Veterans Day no less,”.

Donald Trump told reporters, that he would not argue with Putin over Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.
President said “He said he didn’t meddle, he said he didn’t meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times,”
“Every time he sees me he says, ‘I didn’t do that,’ and I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it,” he continued. “I can’t stand there and argue with him, I would rather have him get out of Syria, I would rather get to work with him on the Ukraine.”
