Trump Thanks Putin For Ordering 755 US Diplomats Out of Embassy: ‘We’re Trying to Cut…Payroll’ | Mediaite
“I want to thank him because we’re trying to cut down on payroll,” Trump said. “And as far as I’m concerned, I’m very thankful that he let go of a large number of people, because now we have a smaller payroll.”
Again, Trump did not offer a hint of a smile, or anything else to indicate that he was being sarcastic as he spoke on the topic. His response appeared to be genuine.
