Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge Releases Statement Following Trump-Putin Press Conference in Helsinki


WASHINGTON – Congresswoman Marcia L. Fudge (OH-11) released the following statement after the President sided with Russian President Vladimir Putin while refusing to hold him and the Russian government accountable for interfering in the 2016 presidential election.

“It is a national embarrassment for the President to take the word of a despot, dictator, murderer and former Russian spy over the investigative and fact-driven work of his own intelligence and law enforcement agencies.  The President used the world stage to blatantly disrespect those who vowed to protect and defend this country.  Clearly, the President is a willing marionette for Putin.  Today’s defense of Russia’s reprehensible actions in our 2016 election is detrimental to our nation.  His allegiance to Putin shows us, once again, that the President cares nothing for this country or its citizens. It’s all about him.”
