Trump gave his boss Putin a free pass. To target American troops. Or his incompetence is criminal.

Kinda doubt anyone in the military would vote for him after this.

Whoops...

Trump's head buried in the sand with Russia and Hong Kong and Uighurs.

I find the uproar over this incomprehensible.  In a war zone isn't the purpose of the whole thing to kill the other side.?  How does offering a bounty make any difference? 

And as for this coming from Russia, haven't we by now fully overdone the whole Russia/Putin thing?  Does anyone really believe the drivel Pelosi spouts about Russia having something on Trump?

Anyway, even if this is true and he was briefed and it is something we should care about, what exactly does anyone expect him to do?  Declare war?  Protest?  He has already slapped some pretty tough sanctions on Russia.

As an American citizen, I can say without hesitation that Putin has something on Trump. An American President does not act this way. Trump is a slave to Russia.

yet America isnt at war with Russia, yet Russia is targeting American troops and Trump does nothing about it. Same as US intelligence confirming Russian interference in US elections now this with Russian targeting US troops, Trump chooses to ignore it

Trump, top officials defend response to Russia bounty threat

Are we ever going to see anything else but fake media lies when it concerns Trump? All there is is a claim by the NYT (with its impeccable record of never publishing fake news, lol) that an unidentified source told them something. That does not pass the sniff test right there.

As for the content of the claim, it is absurd right off the bat. So the Taliban now needs a "bounty" to kill infidel soldiers? Since when? As if that is not what they do anyway, every time they get a chance. And a bounty from their arch-enemy, who is battling islamist jihadis in Syria right now? How absurd can you get?

interesting. So the pro-Trump argument is that it is now OK for foreign countries to put bounties on the heads of US soldiers?

Um....OK then. Not much else to say to that.

Every serviceman and woman should be mad at this excuse of a child. Spineless, selfish, unintelligent, uncaring, evil excuse of a child.

It's got to be much much worse than pee-pee tapes. Right at this moment, pee-pee tapes wouldn't even be embarrassing to him - more like something to brag about.

This is just BS. This isn't all just some figment of the NY Times imagination, even White House officials quoted in this very article if you bothered to read it admit that these intelligence reports from US agencies in fact exist.
