In what can only be seen as a betrayal to his own country, Donald Trump has just sided with Russian President Vladimir Putin over U.S. President Barack Obama.
After all major intelligence agencies determined that Russia did, in fact, interfere with the presidential election, President Obama began doing what needed to be done to retaliate. Which included expelling Russian diplomats from the United States.
Well, in response, Putin decided instead of retaliating, he would just try to pretend he’s above the situation. According to the New York Times:
“Mr. Putin, betting on improved relations with the next American president, said he would not eject 35 diplomats or close any diplomatic facilities, rejecting a response to actions taken by the Obama administration on Thursday.”
Clearly giving Putin and Russia more loyalty than his own nation, President-elect Donald Trump, who happened to be who Russia wanted as president, decided to tweet out approval of Putin’s actions:
“Great move on delay (by V. Putin) – I always knew he was very smart!”
Great move on delay (by V. Putin) – I always knew he was very smart!

And, by the way, that tweet is currently pinned to the top of his Twitter page, meaning he wants everyone to see it.
Oh, and Russia retweeted him:
If Trump actually cared about the cybersecurity of the United States and the very clear threat Russia has posed on how we operate as a nation, he would more than back President Obama, and follow through with a full investigation himself. However, since the election went his way, he seems to definitely be siding with the forces that allegedly helped get him into power.
This is outrageous and borderlines on treason.
