Chuck Todd to Sen. Roy Blunt: Do You Worry Trump Could "Hand Crimea To The Russians" At Putin Meeting? (RealClearPolitics)
As the U.S. summit with Russia draws closer, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) joined 'Meet the Press' host Chuck Todd to warn President Donald Trump to remember Russian President Vladimir Putin is not his friend.
"I think it’s fine to talk to the Russians, but the president should clearly understand that neither the Russians nor dictators like Kim Jong Un are going to be charmed by anybody," Blunt told Chuck Todd on Sunday. "They are very cold-blooded, calculating. Putin would be in that category."
"Are you nervous considering how the Kim Jong-un meeting went where the president gave a lot more than what was expected including getting rid of the military exercises? Are you concerned, for instance, he's going to hand Crimea to the Russians?" the 'Meet the Press' host asked Sen. Blunt.
