A conservative host on Friday was left stunned after President Donald Trump admitted that he had talked to Vladimir Putin about Robert Mueller’s investigation — but had not challenged the Russian president for meddling in U.S elections.
Todd Schnitt of Newsmax TV said on his show that it was clear Putin was not a friend of the United States.
“The president spent about an hour on the phone with Putin… he is as anti-American as it gets… Putin is essentially the head of state-sponsored election terrorism, you name it,” he said.
“I just don’t find a lot of comfort that the president did not talk about this with Putin,” Schnitt said. “Trump needs to tell Putin to knock it off.”
“The president sees all this intelligence — or has access to it — [showing] that they continue to interfere, and the president needs to tell Vladimir Putin to cut the crap and knock it off.”

Three judges suspended for drunken 3 AM fight at White Castle — that ended with two shot
Three judges were suspended after engaging in a drunken shooting outside a White Castle.
"Three Indiana judges involved in a Downtown Indianapolis fight in May that ended with two of the judges shot have been suspended without pay after the Indiana Supreme Court determined they committed judicial misconduct," the Indianapolis Star reports. "In an opinion issued Tuesday, the court said judges Bradley Jacobs, Andrew Adams and Sabrina Bell 'engaged in judicial misconduct by appearing in public in an intoxicated state and behaving in an injudicious manner and by becoming involved in a verbal altercation.'"
What Zelensky knew: The devastating and darkly ironic impact of Trump’s attempt to bribe Ukraine
In their effort to exculpate President Donald Trump in the impeachment inquiry, Republicans put Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s denial that he ever felt pressure from the White House to open up investigations into Democrats at the center of their argument. A new GOP memo says that both leaders have acknowledged “there was no pressure” on the famous July 25 call that sparked the inquiry and thus argues that the allegations made by Democrats that Trump abused his power don’t hold.
Greta Thunberg says ‘people must finally wake up’ to the fact Trump is ‘so extreme’ on climate change
Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg said Tuesday that US President Donald Trump's climate change denialism was "so extreme" that it had helped galvanize the movement to halt long term planetary warming.
She spoke in an interview with AFP on the eve of her departure from North America where she has spent almost three months.
"He's so extreme and he says so extreme things, so I think people wake up by that in a way," the 16-year-old said from on board a sailboat preparing to depart from the East Coast town of Hampton, Virginia for Europe early Wednesday.
"I thought when he got elected, now people will finally, now people must finally wake up," she continued.
