Donald Trump Appears to Draw Parallels Between U.S., Vladimir Putin’s Russia – WSJ

WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump appeared to draw an equivalence between Russian President Vladimir Putin and the behavior of the U.S. when he responded to a remark about Mr. Putin being a “killer” by saying: “We got a lot of killers—what, you think our country’s so innocent?”

“I say it’s better to get along with Russia than not,” Mr. Trump said, though he added that he didn’t know whether he and Mr. Putin would hit it off.

“But he’s a killer,” Mr. O’Reilly interjected.
“We’ve got a lot of killers,” Mr. Trump responded after a short pause. “What, you think our country’s so innocent?”

O’Reilly question is foolish and draws an equally foolish response.
You can’t be a hero without being a monster. Russia is punished and ostracized not because Putin is a killer but because Russia refuses to play by the rules.

Вопрос Билла О’Райли глуп, как и ответ Трампа на него. Ты не можешь быть героем не будучи чудовищем. Россию наказывают и делают изгоем не потому, что Путин убийца, а потому что Россия отказывается играть по правилам.
