Krauthammer Slams Obama on Russia: 'We Have Done Nothing Against Putin'
Charles Krauthammer reacted on "Special Report" tonight to comments President Obama made at the G7 summit in Germany regarding Russia and President Vladimir Putin.
"Does he continue to wreck his country’s economy and continue Russia’s isolation in pursuit of a wrong-headed desire to recreate the glories of the Soviet empire? Or does he recognize that Russia’s greatness does not depend on violating the territorial integrity and sovereignty of other countries?" Obama said.
"Obama's arrogance on this is really incomprehensible," Krauthammer stated. "He tells ISIS it's not Islamic. He tells the Israelis that he knows Jewish ethics and interest more than they do. And now he's instructing Putin on what the essence of Russian greatness is."
Krauthammer noted that Putin currently has an 80 percent approval rating in Russia, almost twice what Obama has in the U.S. He said that Putin, not Obama, knows what Russians want.
"They want the Crimea and Ukraine. They're willing to suffer economically if necessary," Krauthammer said. "We have done nothing against Putin. And there are a lot of options on the table that we have ignored."
