President Donald Trump‘s shrug at the description of Russian President Vladimir Putin as a “killer” drew a Twitter rebuke from Sen. Marco Rubio today.
In an advance clip of a Fox News interview set to air in full at 4 p.m. today, Bill O’Reilly described Putin as “a killer” after Trump said he respects the Russian leader and believes he can work with him on combating Islamic terrorism.
“There are a lot of killers,” Trump replied. “We’ve got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country is so innocent?”
Trump’s remark has drawn much criticism, including a morning tweet from Rubio, who accused Trump of being soft on Putin when they were Republican presidential rivals.
“When has a Democratic political activists been poisoned by the GOP, or vice versa? We are not the same as #Putin,” Rubio tweeted.
