President Trump said that Russia annexing Crimea was an “Obama disaster” Friday.
“What is your thinking about improving your relations with Russia while they continue to illegally occupy another country?” a reporter asked.
“Yes, they do if you are talking about Crimea primarily, but President Obama failed very badly with Crimea. I don’t think he would have done that if I were president. He took over Crimea and he actually took it over during the Obama administration, I think you will admit.”
“How do you get him out?”
“We have to see what happens. I’m not bad at doing things. If you look at what I’ve done compared to what other people have done 160 days in there is nobody close, I don’t believe. Let’s see what happens but this was an Obama disaster and I think if I were president then he would not have taken over Crimea. During the Obama administration, he essentially took over Crimea. I don’t think he would have done that with me as president, John.” (RELATED: Trump Unapologetic: Immigration Is ‘A Very Negative Thing For Europe’)
