CHRIS CHRISTIE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE/VLADIMIR PUTIN: “Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie writes in his new memoir that former President Donald Trump believes Russian President Vladimir Putin is ‘just like him.’

Trump thought ‘that if he complimented Putin enthusiastically enough, the Russian president would behave,’ Christie writes…

But Trump turned out to be wrong: his flattery of Putin ‘never ceased and neither did Putin’s ruthlessness,’ Christie writes.”
