Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on Helsinki: Trump Was Putin’s ‘Useful Idiot’

‘He wants to separate us from our allies in Europe’

EXCERPT:

ALBRIGHT: "Putin has a plan. He wants to undermine democracy. He wants to separate us from our allies in Europe. He wants to reassert influence in the Middle East. And our president is a help in all of this. There is a term that the Russians use, it’s called 'useful idiot.' I do think that whatever President Trump thought he was saying, he definitely helped Putin’s plans for getting back into the game and for undermining democracy in Europe. We cannot allow that to happen."
