ThinkProgress stating the obvious: Trump Appears To Be Ignorant of a Major International Conflict.
Asked about the scrubbing of pro-Ukrainian language from the Republican platform, Trump offered up a word salad in which he seemed unaware that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been meddling in Ukrainian politics for years.
‘[Putin’s] not going into Ukraine, okay, just so you understand. He’s not going to go into Ukraine, all right? You can mark it down. You can put it down. You can take it anywhere you want,’ Trump said.
Stephanopoulos pushed back, reminding Trump that Putin’s ‘already there, isn’t he?’ Trump quickly changed the topic to Obama bashing.
‘Okay — well, he’s there in a certain way. But I’m not there. You have Obama there,’ Trump said. ‘And frankly, that whole part of the world is a mess under Obama with all the strength that you’re talking about and all of the power of NATO and all of this. In the meantime, he’s going away. He takes Crimea.’"
We have 99 days left of increased scrutiny on Trumps knowledge, abilities and past. This should be fun (at least it had better be).
