WATCH: Trump thanks Putin for sending home our diplomats, laments Manafort raid…

Trump was asked about Putin sending home many American diplomats in response to American sanctions. Trump responded by thanking Putin for helping cut down his payroll:

Ok that was clever.

He also weighed in on the FBI raiding Manafort’s home in the early hours of the morning:

Trump lamented that it was a very tough thing for the FBI to do and said he was very surprised to hear it happened. He also defended Manafort, suggesting that he’s always known him to be a decent man and that he’s probably taken consultant fees from all over the place like many businessmen.
