President Elect Donald Trump has on several occasions defended Vladimir Putin. I would not class this move as suspicious, but I would consider it foolish to admit this, since Putin has such a bad reputations. He may have claimed his support to get more Republican votes though, you can never be sure.
Donald Trumps love for Putin was well known even before he won the U.S. election. The fact he has now continued to defend Putin despite the governments defence agencies making it clear that Russia had their hackers at work during the election is even more worrying. Trumps attitude towards Russia was suspicious in 2016, it is even more suspicious now in 2017.
Yes, Donald Trump's defense of Vladimir Putin on several occasions is suspicious. Why is he so attached to a dictator from a country that is often at odds with the United States? Why does he refuse to believe that Putin or his country were involved in hacking during the election?
Donald Trump has often been criticized for his apparent affinity for Russian President Vladimir Putin.On several occasions, Trump has heaped praise on Putin and the Russian president has reciprocated. The mutual platitudes have been questioned by many, but a new CIA report alleging Russia tried to help him win the US election has thrust their rhetorical liaisons back into the spotlight. So yes, the move definitely looks suspicious
