The White House on Wednesday responded to former President Donald Trump’s message to Vladimir Putin to release information about Hunter Biden’s business deals.
‘What kind of American, let alone an ex-President, thinks that this is the right time to enter into a scheme with Vladimir Putin and brag about his connections to Vladimir Putin?’ said White House Communications Director Kate Bedingfield when asked about Trump’s comments.
‘There is only one and it’s Donald Trump,’ she said.
She made the comment a day after Trump appeared to once again solicit information from Putin, this time during an interview with ‘Just the News.’
Trump brought up Hunter Biden’s lucrative business dealings, then accused Hunter of taking money from the wife of the late mayor of Moscow, Yury Luzhkov.
“She gave him $3.5 million so now I would think Putin would know the answer to that. I think he should release it,” Trump told journalist John Solomon in an interview at his own Mar-a-Lago home. ‘I think we should know that answer,’ Trump said.
‘Russia, if you’re listening,’ Trump famously said in his 2016 presidential campaign, where he asked Russia to find Hillary Clinton’s missing emails.
‘I hear that VERY low-rated “Morning Joe” and his psycho wife, Mika, think that I should not be asking Russia what the $3.5 million that Hunter and Joe got from the Mayor of Moscow’s wife was for,’ Trump said in a statement Wednesday. ‘In time, Russia may be willing to give that information.’
Then, Trump addressed his comment calling Putin a ‘genius’ – saying he was not referring to the invasion that has resulted in millions of refugees and thousands of deaths.
He said he was only referring to Putin’s decision to put 200,000 troops on the border to encircle Ukraine.
‘The Fake News is also saying I called Putin a “genius,” when actually, and to be precise, I called his build-up on the Ukraine Border before the war started genius because I assumed he would be easily able to negotiate a great deal for Russia,’ Trump said.
‘The U.S. and NATO would agree to give Russia what they wanted. Unfortunately, and tragically, Putin went too far, acting on the WEAK Foreign Policy of the Biden Administration. The Fake News said I called him a genius during the war. No, I was describing the great negotiating posture he had prior to the unfortunate decision to enter Ukraine and fight. There was nothing “genius” about that!
