Reporter Pushes Prez on Crimea at G-7 Summit

Trying to trap President Donald Trump with a trick question doesn’t always work so well, as one reporter just found out.

During a news conference at the G-7 conference of the world’s top economic nations, a journalist tossed out a “gotcha” question about Russia, but Trump deflected it toward former President Barack Obama instead.

“There’s something that happened that got (Russia) kicked out of the G-8 … it was the invasion, annexation of Crimea,” the reporter said to Trump as the president listened. “Do you think that Crimea should be recognized as Russia at this point?”

Crimea has been disputed between Ukraine and Russia for years. The journalist seemed to imply that the president was conceding Russian victory in that part of the world by inviting the large nation to the international summit.

Trump didn’t play the reporter’s game, however. He instead pointed a finger at Obama.

“Well you know, you’d have to ask President Obama, cause he was the one who let Crimea get away. That was during his administration,” Trump answered, referencing the 2014 takeover of Crimea by Russia.

***********

Yup, that Obama didn’t like crossing those red lines.
