Yarmuth Statement on Trump-Putin Summit

WASHINGTON – Today, Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-03) issued the statement below regarding President Trump’s remarks following his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin:

“The President of the United States made his choices clear today in Helsinki. He chose a murderous dictator over his own intelligence community, propaganda and bullying over a Constitutional free press, his own political aspiration over U.S. election security, and frankly, Russia over America. President Trump showed the free world today that they cannot rely on the U.S. as an ally because Vladimir Putin now calls the shots.  This is a disgraceful chapter in American history and proof that U.S. interests are not even a factor in the decision making of this president. I don’t know what else my Republican colleagues need before they raise their voices in defense of their country against this treachery.”
