President Donald Trump has told the Christian Broadcasting Network’s (CBN) Pat Robertson that Russian President Vladimir Putin preferred Hillary Clinton in the recent election.
In the interview with Robertson, Trump disputed the rather infamous claim and common misconception that Putin was fighting for Trump to win, and that he wanted Hillary in the White House instead.
This makes perfect sense considering Hillary Clinton is weak and would have likely run our country into the ground. The weaker America is, the stronger Russia grows.
Trump said on Thursday, “So what I keep hearing about that he would have rather had Trump, I think ‘probably not,’” he continued, “When I want a strong military, you know she wouldn’t have spent the money on military.”
Of course Putin doesn’t want us to have a strong military, like I already stated above. That would have been their opportunity to sail past our defenses.
The Republican said that his support for a strong U.S. military and export-heavy energy policy is opposed by Putin.
Trump continued, “If Hillary had won, our military would be decimated. Our energy would be much more expensive. That’s what Putin doesn’t like about me. And that’s why I say, why would he want me? Because from day one, I wanted a strong military. He doesn’t want to see that.”
