Trump Blames Obama — Not Putin — For Russia Illegally Invading Ukraine and Annexing Crimea
President Trump concluded his G7 trip on Monday by repeating Russian propaganda, claiming once again that Russia had been kicked out of the Group of 7 in 2014 because Russian President Vladimir Putin had “outsmarted” and “embarrassed” President Obama when Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine.
“President Obama was pure and simply outsmarted,” Trump concluded. “They took Crimea during his term. That was not a good thing. It could have been stopped with the right whatever. It could have been stopped. But President Obama was unable to stop it and it’s too bad.”
