Trump’s post followed an earlier one Friday in which he praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for not expelling American diplomats in retaliation for President Barack Obama‘s sanctions on Thursday in response to the breach at the Democratic National Committee and other party operatives.
The later post also came as CNN’s Jim Sciutto interviewed former Republican House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra, who once served as a Trump surrogate, on Putin’s response.
Sciutto challenged Hoekstra’s assertions that U.S. intelligence agencies have hacked other world leaders.
In addition, The Washington Post reported Friday that Russia slammed CNN and the Obama administration for falsely reporting that it was closing an American school in Moscow in response to Obama’s sanctions.
“U.S. officials ‘anonymously informed’ their media that Russia closed the Anglo-American School in Moscow as a retaliatory measure,” Maria Zakharova of the Russian Foreign Ministry said Friday on Facebook, the Post reports.
“That’s a lie. “Apparently, the White House has completely lost its senses and began inventing sanctions against its own children,” he said.
CNN was one of the first news organizations to report the school’s closure:
