The Senate Intelligence Committee’s report showing how President Donald Trump and members of his campaign team and family colluded with Russia also included an embarrassing letter from Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The 2007 letter congratulates Putin on being named TIME magazine’s “Man of the Year.” Many are calling it fawning.
“As you probably have heard, I am a big fan of yours!” Trump says in the letter, underlining those words with his iconic Sharpie.
Here’s what some are saying in response:
Holy Lord. I never even wrote something like this to The New Kids on the Block. Wow. https://t.co/BVM8TgRtJh

OMG! Trump sent a fawning little letter to Putin in 2017…”I’m a BIG FAN of yours”. A big fan of a heinous, murderous dictator who put bounties on the heads of US soldiers. #PutinsBigFanTrump@GOP should hang their heads in shame for enabling the Trump Horror Show. https://t.co/xBohTO3Xu7

OMFG. 2007. I mean, everyone jokes about Trump’s love letters to Putin. But that’s actually, literally a love letter. Who needs a pee-pee tape. This should be on the front page of every major newspaper.
