Donald Trump Thanks Putin for Expelling US Diplomats: “Now We Have a Smaller Payroll”

Donald Trump thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin for expelling 755 U.S. diplomats in retaliation for the sanctions against his country, saying, “Now we have a smaller payroll.”

Here’s the full quote:  “I want to thank him because we’re trying to cut down our payroll and as far as I’m concerned I’m very thankful that he let go of a large number of people because now we have a smaller payroll. There’s no reason for them to go back. I greatly appreciate the fact that we’ve been able to cut our payroll of the United States. We’re going to save a lot of money.”

I am at a loss for words that any president would even utter such nonsense. Putin couldn’t have asked for a better stooge. By the way, these diplomats aren’t simply going to be fired. Again, complete ignorance from Trump.
