Report: Trump Insisted Crimea Is Russian Because Crimeans Speak Russian

President Donald Trump told leaders at a G7 summit dinner that Crimea is Russian because its people speak Russian, diplomatic sources told Buzzfeed. Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, which led to sanctions and its removal from what was then the G8. Trump also told leaders at the dinner last Friday that “Ukraine is one of the most corrupt countries in the world,” according to a diplomat.
