Congressman Evans statement on President Trump's meeting with Russia's President, Vladimir Putin

July 16, 2018
Press Release

Today, President Trump held a summit with Vladimir Putin, whose country was deeply entrenched in our 2016 U.S. Presidential election. Despite their obvious attack on our sacred election process, Mr. Trump called our country’s previous relationship with Russia “foolishness and stupidity.”

The only “foolishness and stupidity,” I see is that our President has more loyalty to Russia than the United States of America!

After special counsel Robert Mueller issued a staggering 12 indictments on 12 Russian intelligence officers last week, President Trump should have canceled the summit and any talks with Putin.

Instead, Trump shook Putin’s hand and praised him while criticizing America.

President Trump embarrassed the U.S. on the global stage.
