Paul Ryan Criticizes Vladimir Putin Amid Trump's Praise for Russian Leader

A spokesman for Republican US presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Friday that North Korea's nuclear test was an example of the "catastrophic failures" of his Democratic rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Whether or not Hugh Hewitt will admit it, if he wants to advocate for the candidate who would show the most backbone in our country's perennial confrontation with Russian Federation, he's with her.

Clinton and her top aides have sought to disqualify Trump's ability to handle national security and military issues, questioning his temperament and qualifications.

After zealously greeting Trump's arrival on stage with raucous chants, shrieks and cries, the supporters cheered as he accused Clinton of being a corrupt criminal who could shoot someone with impunity. Her tenure has brought us only war, destruction and death. "Her judgement is flawed", he said.

And while she's apologized for a long list of past policy ideas and personal choices, including her use of a private email account while serving as secretary of state, he's acknowledged just once that there are statements "I do regret".

LAUER: Did you learn new things in that briefing? "National security experts on both sides of the aisle are chilled by what they're hearing from the Republican nominee".

Thursday night Donald Trump called into Larry King's show on RT, the Russian-backed news network largely known to spread pro-Kremlin, pro-Putin propaganda along with dezinformatsiya, Russian disinformation. Lauer also could have pointed out Thursday that Trump's statement about Iraq had been fact-checked and voters could investigate it for themselves, said Alan Schroeder, author of "Presidential Debates: 50 Years of High-Risk TV".

"If he wasn't good with Hillary Clinton, he was bad when handling Donald Trump", the host said. "And it's a war that, when we got out, we got out the wrong way. Vladimir Putin is violating the sovereignty of neighboring countries", Ryan said at his weekly news conference.

American presidential candidates are not prone to condemn their country before a foreign audience, even if they are fierce critics of the current administration while campaigning in the United States. Trump said it was "probably unlikely".

Dispiritingly, Trump's man-crush on Russian strongman Vladimir Putin still burns brightly. So, this is just more of his loose talk, his kind of reckless pontificating that really doesn't have any substance to it.

Morell's comments come the day after The Washington Post published a letter to Trump from Morell and Mike Vickers, the former undersecretary of Defense for intelligence, that was critical of Trump's comments about Putin.

On Larry King's RT show "PoliticKING", Trump told the veteran host that it's "probably unlikely" Putin is trying to influence USA elections. He suggested on Kremlin television that Russian Federation wasn't actually behind the hack of Democratic National Committee emails, in direct contradiction with what top US security officials believe.
