Former WH Press Sec Stephanie Grisham Says Trump Admired Putin’s ‘Ability to Kill Anyone’

Donald Trump “admired” Vladimir Putin’s ability to kill anyone he wanted, according to his former White House press secretary, Stephanie Grisham.

In an interview with The View on Tuesday, Grisham discussed Trump’s relationship with the Russian president, saying: “I think [Trump] feared [Putin]. I think he was afraid of him. I think that the man intimidated him. Because Putin is a scary man, just frankly, I think he was afraid of him.” Grisham went on to add just how Putin continues to have a hold on Trump: “I also think he admired him greatly. I think he wanted to be able to kill whoever spoke out against him. So I think it was a lot of that. In my experience with him, he loved the dictators, he loved the people who could kill anyone, including the press.” Trump has always highly praised Putin for his actions, and called him a “genius” for invading Ukraine.

Trump and Putin first met in 1987, and it’s been documented that Trump most likely helped the former KGB agent gain footing in America via the Russian mob in New York City. He constantly praised the Russian dictator during his 2016 presidential campaign and then throughout his administration, with many assuming he was secretly doing Putin’s bidding. Trump is openly supporting the Russian invasion of Ukraine, which has resulted in more than 1,300 civilian casualties, including 474 killed and 861 injured.

In an interview last month with a conservative radio show, Trump couldn’t stop himself from openly praising and complementing Putin, saying: “I went in yesterday and there was a television screen, and I said, ‘This is genius.’ Putin declares a big portion of … Ukraine. Putin declares it as independent. Oh, that’s wonderful. So Putin is now saying, ‘It’s independent,’ a large section of Ukraine. I said, ‘How smart is that?’ And he’s gonna go in and be a peacekeeper. That’s the strongest peace force. We could use that on our southern border.” Trump continued his grandstanding for the dictator, saying: “There were more army tanks than I’ve ever seen. They’re gonna keep peace all right. No, but think of it. Here’s a guy who’s very savvy, I know him very well. Very, very well.”
