Trump Says Putin's Assassinations Can't Be Proved
Donald Trump says he hasn't seen proof that Vladimir Putin has killed journalists. Though he's right, Putin's critics are often silenced violently.By Grant Suneson | December 20, 2015
Donald Trump said he was honored by an endorsement from Russian President Vladimir Putin. But when he was asked about allegations that Putin had stifled and even killed members of the press, here's what he said.
"In all fairness to Putin, you're saying he killed people. I haven't seen that. I don't know that he has. Have you been able to prove that? Do you know the names of the reporters that he's killed?" Trump said in an interview from "This Week" on ABC.
While there's never been any direct proof that Putin has had anyone killed, some of his enemies have met untimely deaths.
