What Trump sees in Putin | TheHill

Donald Trump is not backing down from his praise of Vladimir Putin – even if his embrace of the Russian president is sparking media criticism and causing his GOP colleagues obvious unease.

Trump told NBC’s Matt Lauer that Putin “has very strong control over a country,” during a forum on national security and foreign affairs on Wednesday evening. He also praised Putin for having an “82 percent approval rating” among his own people.

During another interview this week with Larry King, the GOP nominee insisted that the idea of Russian interference in the U.S. election was “pretty unlikely.” The interview stirred more controversy because it was rebroadcast on RT, a Kremlin-backed TV network.
