Trump Loves Putin: A Video History
The GOP nominee has a long and well-documented history of gushing over the Russian dictator.
When Donald Trump declared on Tuesday that he considers Vladimir Putin a stronger leader than President Obama, it seemed unprecedented. Sadly, it wasn’t. Throughout his campaign, the Republican nominee has repeatedly praised Putin to the heavens, complimenting his strength and decisiveness, and has more than once expressed his preference for him over his own country’s president. In fact, before he was called out in the media for exaggerating his “relationship” with the Russian leader, Trump used to brag that he and Putin were “stablemates”—whatever that means—because they appeared on the same episode of “60 Minutes.” In this video, take a horrifying look back at all the most memorable moments of the Trump-Putin bromance.
