This is priceless! President Trump just gave the best response ever to a reporter’s question! He said he wanted to thank Russian President Vladimir Putin for reducing his payroll by firing U.S. embassy staff in Moscow. Hysterical and so quick! Watch how Trump doesn’t skip a beat with his response:
After Sanctions on Russia were put in place in July, Putin ordered 755 embassy personnel out of Russia.
President Trump was asked today during a press conference what he thought of the firing. His response was quick and decisive. He said he wanted to thank Putin for the firing: “No. I want to thank him, because we’re trying to cut down on payroll. And as far as I’m concerned, I’m very thankful that he let go of a large number of people because now we have a smaller payroll.”
He continued: “There’s no real reason for them to go back. So I greatly appreciate the fact that they have been able to cut our payroll for the United States. We’ll save a lot of money.”
