Putin doesn't love Russia and he doesn't fight for Russian interests at all, Kasparov said.
Trump admired Putin for 'loving his country' and 'fighting for its interests,' and in this case, former World Chess Champion, writer, and political activist Garry Kasparov shared on his Facebook page:
'Praising a dictator means praising dictatorship and envying his power. Trump has made this clear all his life, including similar remarks about the 'tough' Chinese leaders who massacred civilians in Tienanmen Square in 1989. This cartoon gets at other aspects of Trump's fatal case of Putin Envy, his desire to use state power for personal enrichment and personal power. Nearly every remark Trump makes about his plans and about the press confirms how much he would love to have the authority to silence his critics.
Earlier today on Twitter, another Trump defender said Trump admired Putin for 'loving his country' and 'fighting for its interests.' This is incredibly ignorant and wrong, beyond even the insanity of American pundits and politicians praising a brutal KGB dictator. Putin has led Russia to ruin! He had a few years of glory thanks to skyrocketing oil prices, but his authoritarian kleptocracy has gutted Russian industry and education and Russians are leaving at a record pace to escape the failing economy.
Putin doesn't love Russia and he doesn't fight for Russian interests at all. He loves only money and fights only for his own interests. And that Russia has become a noisy troll on the global stage thanks to Putin's aggression against his neighbors and brutality abroad is nothing to be proud of and nothing to admire.
I'm still in shock that Trump and his supporters can continue to repeat their praise for a thug like Putin, who is actively attacking the US and US interests, without being destroyed. Dislike Obama and Hillary as much as you want--I'm certainly no fan--but a candidate defending dictatorship and praising a vicious dictator is should be absolutely disqualifying.'
As reported earlier by 1492news.com, Garry Kasparov: 'Putin isn't a military dictator, he's a KGB guy.'
