On the homestretch of his whirlwind trip to Asia, President Donald Trump tweeted a defense of his efforts to establish a rapport with Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying that the Kremlin “can greatly help” Washington with global trouble spots.
“When will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing[?]” asked Trump before accusing critics of “always playing politics — bad for our country.”
“I want to solve North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can greatly help!” Trump added.
The tweet was part of a series of posts Trump made from Vietnam early Sunday morning. They included criticism of “Crooked Hillary Clinton,” former President Barack Obama, and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
