Hayden: ‘President Trump Admires President Putin, He Likes Strong Authoritarian Figures’

‘President Trump is a stubborn proud man that never admits he’s wrong’

RUSH EXCERPT:

BURNETT: "And why do you think it is that he won’t?"
HAYDEN: "Look, there may or may not be any dark secrets that Robert Mueller will disclose, I don’t know that, so I don’t go there. I think we have a position where frankly I think President Trump admires president Putin. He likes strong authoritarian figures. Already stated his affection for president Putin’s style. And now I think President Trump is a stubborn proud man that never admits he’s wrong. And he can’t allow his spokeswoman to say what is obvious to everyone. And, Erin, that’s not style. That’s substance when the American president doesn’t take this on personally."
