Trump On Putin “Lose With Dignity” Comment: “So True”

4

President-elect Donald Trump late Friday praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for attacking Trump’s former Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

The incoming U.S. president tweeted that he agreed with the Russian leader’s assessment that Clinton and the Democratic Party generally have not shown “dignity” following widespread losses in the November election.

“So true!” Trump tweeted of Putin’s comments, apparently referencing statements the Russian made at his year-end news conference: “Vladimir Putin said today about Hillary and Dems: ‘In my opinion, it is humiliating. One must be able to lose with dignity.’ So true!”

Trump’s admiration of Putin came only hours after he released to the media a warm letter the Russian sent him.

In Putin’s letter, dated Dec. 15, the Russian leader wrote that he hopes he and Trump can act “in a constructive and pragmatic manner” following the Jan. 20 inauguration. Trump was pleased with the correspondence, saying in a statement Friday, “A very nice letter from Vladimir Putin; his thoughts are so correct.”

  1. seeing that this story comes from the washington prust, do not be fooled that this “news”paper is just innocently reporting that trump got a nice letter from putin and when putin is telling hillary to “lose with dignity”, trump agrees. sounds like a human interest story, right? don’t be fooled. read in between the lines. the washington prust is trying to embed in their reader’s mind that putin and trump are so much on the same wave length and that they both really “love” each other. they are sending a very subtle message criticizing trump for buddying up to putin. this was one of hillary’s attacks on trump, remember? and now the washington prust is proving that hillary was right.

  2. No question chaimle is right, the picture posted with the article shows both Trump and Putin puckering. All a subliminal message trying to get conveyed.
