This is an epic take-down of Trump’s clumsy clueless response to Putin ordering 755 US Embassy staff out of Russia by (lamely) thanking him for reducing US payroll. Donald Trump would rather trash US Embassy staff than say anything remotely negative about Putin. 

Ex-Russia ambassador rails against Trump over praise of Putin

BY BROOKE SEIPEL 

Former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul railed against President Trump on Thursday after he thanked Russian President Vladimir Putin for ordering the U.S. to cut its diplomatic staff by 755 people.

McFaul, who served as ambassador from 2012 to 2014, has previously spoken out against the Trump administration, saying in May of this year that he thinks “Russians are laughing” at the U.S.

Trump just applauded  cuts of 755 in Russian embassy. Maybe he should look to trim his own staff? https://t.co/KKF0tP0PL2

You realize Mr. President that the State Dept organizes US delegations to GES — those same people you just said were not needed in Russia. https://t.co/wCGRJrkcO0

That @realDonaldTrump praised Putin today for cutting 755 people from our embassy in Russia shows that he doesn't understand diplomacy.

Our diplomats, professional staff, and military serving in Russia provide Washington with invaluable information about Russia. https://t.co/6XHtSZkSWm

Imagine dissing Americans –patriots serving our country under difficult conditions in Russia -to praise Putin. Our president did today. https://t.co/KovoLuMISa

Our Embassy staff know how to do their jobs, unlike president Trump who doesn’t even seem interested in (or capable of) learning how to do his demanding job.
