Putin Praises 'Very Talented' Trump, Says He's 'Absolute Leader' in Presidential Race
Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump has plenty of admirers, and you can apparently count Russian President Vladimir Putin among them.
Putin praised Trump as "very talented," describing him as the "absolute leader" in the Republican race for the White House.
"He is a very flamboyant man, very talented, no doubt about that," Putin told journalists after a press conference in Moscow. "But this is not up to us to decide if he is worthy. It is up to the voters in the United States. He is an absolute leader of the presidential race, as we see it today."
Carl Cameron said on "Shepard Smith Reporting" that every presidential candidate has condemned Putin, except Trump.
Cameron pointed out that Trump has often said along the campaign trail that he believes he could get along well with the Russian president.
"I will get along - I think - with Putin, and I will get along with others, and we will have a much more stable - stable world," Trump said in September. "I would talk to him. I would get along with him."
Cameron said that Putin's "endorsement" of Trump is likely to surface in attack ads, either from his fellow Republican candidates or, if he wins the GOP nomination, from Democrats as Election Day nears.
