In a preview of the sit-down released by Fox News, the O’Reilly Factor host asks Trump about Vladimir Putin, and whether he respects the Russian president.

“I do respect him… I respect a lot of people, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to get along with him,” Trump says. “He’s a leader of his country. I say it’s better to get along with Russia than not. And if Russia helps us with the fight against ISIS — which is a major fight — and Islamic terrorism all over the world, that’s a good thing. Will I get along with him? I have no idea. It’s very possible I won’t.”

“But he’s a killer, though,” O’Reilly then notes. “Putin’s a killer.”

“There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers,” Trump responds. “What do you think — our country’s so innocent?”

    Trump did NOT defend Putin but merely said the obvious, it is better to keep your enemies closer and that America is not an innocent babe, it does hold lots of killers, throw a few letters together to get the organisations.

      Thanks Gunjo.
      I’m not sure by any means that Trump views Put in as “the enemy”, but nor do I think they’re in cahoots as Hillary’s lot would have us believe. Trump’s man Rex Tillerson likes to keep close to Russia for obvious reasons. It will be interesting to see how US – Russia relationship progresses under Trump’s presidency.
