In his first interview on Fox News since his boycott, Trump talks with O’Reilly on The O’Reilly Factor. He says he supports Putin’s actions in Syria, and says Assad is preferable to ISIS.
If he [Putin] wants to fight ISIS, let him fight ISIS. I say there’s very little downside with Putin fighting ISIS…Personally, I’ve been looking at the different players and I’ve been watching Assad, and I’m looking at Assad and saying maybe he’s better than the kind of people that we’re supposed to be backing because we don’t even know who we’re backing. We have no idea.
Trump also says Putin is a better leader than Obama.
I will tell you that, in terms of leadership, he’s getting an ‘A’ and our president is not doing so well. They did not look good together.
