President Donald Trump told world leaders at the G7 summit that Crimea, a contested territory south of Ukraine, is part of Russia because everyone there speaks Russian, two diplomatic sources told Buzzfeed.
Trump made the remarks at a Friday night dinner during the recent G7 summit in Québec, Canada, according to one of the sources.
This is one of the talking points that Putin used to justify invasion and annexation of Crimea.
Oy. Didn’t Dan Quayle once say that they spoke Latin in Latin America?
In related news, Comrade Trump wants to have a summit with Putin (annual employee review?), because, you know, he did so well with Kim.
