On Thursday, President Trump thanked Vladimir Putin for his decision to expel all American Diplomats from Russia, saying that doing so was a cost-saving benefit for the U.S. Government.
The President spoke with reporters on Thursday while on his two-week golf vacation. The POTUS addressed the decision by Putin which was made late last month.
Trump made the following statement regarding Putin’s decision:
“I want to thank him because we’re trying to cut down our payroll, and as far as I’m concerned I’m very thankful that he let go a large number of people because now we have a smaller payroll,” Trump said. “There’s no real reason for them to go back. I greatly appreciate the fact that we’ve been able to cut our payroll of the United States. We’re going to save a lot of money.”
