NYT’s Sanger: Trump Tougher on Putin Than Obama

Trump expelled the most Russian diplomats in a single day than any other president in history.

The New York Times’ David Sanger told CNN on Tuesday that President Trump had offered a tougher response to Russian aggression than President Obama did following Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“When have we ever done more?” CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked. “[The] Obama administration got rid of people but nowhere near this many.”

Cuomo was referencing Trump’s decision to expel a record number of Russian diplomats.

“In terms of expulsion of diplomats, I’m not sure we ever have,” Sanger said. “It is getting harder to make the argument that the president has not gotten tough with Putin.”

“This is certainly a tougher move for example than President Obama took when he expelled [35] diplomats after the election issues,” he said.
