Former national security adviser John Bolton went after former President Trump on Sunday, warning that the Russian government would cheer on Trump’s reelection because they see him as an “easy mark.”

“If Trump is elected, there’ll be celebrations in the Kremlin,” Bolton said in an MSNBC “Inside with Jen Psaki” interview Sunday. “There’s no doubt about it because Putin thinks that he is an easy mark.”

Russian President Vladimir Putin has praised Trump in the past but nearly endorsed President Biden last week. The Russian leader said Biden would make a “more predictable” president, and is whom he would prefer to win the election.

Bolton brushed the comments off, however, saying Putin “really outdid himself” in the statement’s “disinformation.”

Trump has long held up his good relationship with Putin as an example of his foreign policy expertise, but Bolton said the former president is merely playing into Putin’s hands.

He specifically criticized Trump for refusing to pin the death of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny on Putin. Navalny was reported dead on Friday, and domestic Putin critics and foreign leaders, including President Biden, have labeled it a likely political assassination.

“Well, heaven forbid [Trump] say anything critical of Vladimir Putin,” Bolton said. “Look, accidents don’t happen in those kinds of Russian prison camps.”

Trump made his first comments on Navalny’s death Monday, after Bolton’s interview, comparing the death to his own legal situation. He did not call out Putin, as other leaders have.

He's not wrong.

Trump will likely cut funding to Ukraine, which Putin will love.

So this dumb arse wants 4 more years of Biden? Bolton is a war monger and hates trump because trump won’t start wars all over the place.

Serious question: In Trump’s four years what did he do to help the Russians or go easy on them in any way? Can anyone answer this? Let’s have specifics.

Left can’t give specifics. They never could. It’s all shot thrown against the wall hoping it sticks.

Can't believe he does NOT want a war!

Shame the $$ he's leaving on the table.
