President Trump is defending this week's phone call to Russian President Vladimir Putin. Trump took heat from senior Republicans and others after mentioning that he congratulated Putin for his re-election victory. Trump tweeted yesterday that getting along with Russia is a good thing. He said the "Fake News Media is crazed." Trump argued that Russia can help solve problems with North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, ISIS and Iran.
He then reminded his followers that former-President Barack Obama called Putin as well to congratulate Putin for a previous election victory.
