Rubio: I Wish What Trump Said Yesterday Would Have Been Said in Helsinki

‘Because it would never have had this sort of notion that he was siding with Putin against the U.S. intelligence community’

EXCERPT:

SMITH: "Is this president tough on Russia? Is he as tough as you want him to be based on what you just said?"
RUBIO: "As I said I wish what he said yesterday would have been said in Helsinki because it would never have had this sort of notion that he was siding with Putin against the U.S. intelligence community. But I also — I think it’s important to point to policies. This president has provided and this administration has provided lethal weapons to Ukraine to protect itself from Russia. They’ve imposed sanctions that in many cases go beyond what Congress had asked for. So the actions have been strong. Obviously, you know, I’m a strong supporter of NATO. I think that’s something we need to recommit ourselves to, but in some instances this administration’s policies have been stronger than the previous administration when it comes to Russia and more forward leaning."
