Ad trolling Trump about Jan 6 commission developments

Donald Trump has praised Russian President Vladimir Putin as “smart” and described his move toward Ukraine as “genius” in a new interview.

Putin’s moves toward a possible full-fledged invasion of Ukraine have led a number of Republicans to seek to blame Joe Biden for the crisis, arguing that Russia had not invaded any country while Trump was president — despite the fact that he has repeatedly sided with Mr. Putin on the US military and intelligence agencies, disdain for NATO, and tried to blackmail the Ukrainian government to investigate the Biden family.

Trump initially broke his silence on the Russia-Ukraine crisis Tuesday morning with a tweet posted by his spokesperson claiming that his relationship with Putin would have prevented the crisis.

Last night, White House press secretary Jen Psaki spoke to Trump about his characterization of Putin, saying in her briefing: “As a political matter, we try not to take advice from anyone praising President Putin and his military strategy, which I believe is what happened there.”

Regarding concerns that Mr. Trump’s comments could help turn the Russian invasion into a wedge issue in American politics, she said: “You know, I think it’s up to members of the Republican Party to decide and make the decision.”

Since then, several party members have spoken out about the president’s comments.
