There have been many questions surrounding Donald Trump’s relationship with Russian president Vladimir Putin as well as his connections in Russia. His campaign manager, Paul Manafort, is linked to Putin and the Ukraine. Sources also reported that, when it came to the Republican Party Platform, the Trump campaign’s only demand was a gutting of the GOP’s anti-Russia stance.
Speculation as to any connections between Donald Trump and his key campaign operatives to Putin, Russia, Ukraine, and Crimea grew louder after Russian hackers hacked the email of the DNC and the Clinton campaign. Perhaps that series of events is what led a heckler to yell a statement telling it like he thinks it is.
While Donald Trump speaking Thursday night at a rally in Kissimmee, Florida, a heckler suddenly yelled, “You love Russia! You’re Putin’s bitch!”
Of course, the crowd came to Trump’s defense and Trump’s response to the heckler was light by his standards. Trump said, “Goodbye.” He also added, “Where the hell did he come from?”
Trump has not been shy about his desire for a positive relationship with Russia, which is led by former KGB agent Putin. At this very rally, Trump said, “I get a lot of heat over Russia. Wouldn’t it be nice if we actually got along with Russia?”
Trump’s words and stance towards Russia has prompted newly declared Independent Presidential candidate Evan McMullin, who is a former CIA agent and counter-terrorism expert, to declare that Trump is being manipulated by Putin and he doesn’t even know it.
