UKRAINE/VLADIMIR PUTIN: “During a lengthy interview with Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Thursday night [March 10, 2022]… Hannity tried to elicit Trump into calling Putin evil or something amounting to it. And repeatedly, Trump declined, instead focusing on tangential issues. When he did lament the atrocious scenes in Ukraine, he talked about it merely as something ‘sad’ or regrettable that was happening, rather than attaching it to Putin…

Trump instead re-upped his claim that this wouldn’t have happened on his watch… Trump’s only mention of Putin: ‘And I know him well, and this was not something that was going to happen at all.’”
