Trump’s Putin Illusions

Will someone—calling Ivanka—please tell Donald Trump that Vladimir Putin is no friend of America, or for that matter of Donald Trump? An intervention is needed after the Republican’s mouth-in-foot press conference Wednesday in which he invited Russia to turn over Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 missing emails from her private server.
“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press,” Mr. Trump said at his South Florida resort. “They probably have them. I’d like to have them released.”
The man who is representing millions of Republican voters between now and November added, when given a chance to reconsider, that “If Russia or China or any other country has those emails, I mean, to be honest with you, I’d love to see them.” So would we, and everyone else in the media if they’re honest, but that doesn’t mean a presidential candidate should appear to invite a Kremlin hack.
