‘Kowtowed’ Trump Gets Well-Deserved Smackdown From Nancy Pelosi For Sucking Up To ‘Thug’ Putin

Nancy Pelosi and Donald Trump

During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) scorched former president Donald Trump over his subservient relationship with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin.

“Well, I’m very proud of the fact that the president [Joe Biden] is in Europe saying we’re back,” the Democratic leader told host Dana Bash. “We’re back for climate. We’re back for an open society.

Addressing President Biden’s plans to meet with Putin, Pelosi said it was a good idea before she launched into a scathing review of Trump’s relationship with the Russian strongman.

“Now let’s just make a contrast,” she began. “The president — former president of the United States, for whatever reason, whether the Russians had personal, political or financial leverage over him, kowtowed, catered to Putin in a way that was humiliating to the United States of America. And when, when Putin hears about some of the violations of the rights of his own people, he laughs.”

“This is a thug. This is a thug,” she repeated. “But he is head of an important state in terms of the issues you raise. The president should meet with him, and I think he’s going to meet a very different president than one who was at the mercy of Putin.”
