Trump Just Posted Something So Horrific and Shocking on Truth Social That Americans Are Stunned He Actually Wrote It

Another day, another Donald Trump rage fest on Truth Social. This one was normal for the most part, typical grievances and memes calling him the greatest president of all time.

But on Monday, Trump went too far and said something so shocking, people can’t believe it. We all knew Trump thought this way…but to actually say it out loud?

Trump took to Truth Social and said that he trusts Russian president Vladimir Putin more than the “lowlifes” who work in U.S. intelligence.

Those “lowlifes” are American men and women who have devoted their lives to keeping our country safe. And the former president actually calls them lowlifes, and says he trusts a dictator and murderer like Putin over his own American intelligence officials.

Trump referred back to comments he made after meeting with Putin in Helsinki, Finland, in 2018 when he said that he didn’t “see any reason” why Russia would have meddled in the 2016 election, despite what the FBI stated.

Trump once again suggested he trusts Putin over U.S. intelligence while sharing an article about former FBI official Charles McGonigal, a leading figure in the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia ahead of the 2016 election. McGonigal was recently arrested on suspicion of a number of offenses, including working with sanctioned Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska.

And there’s much more to the McGonigal scandal that Trump is leaving out:

Trump wrote, “Remember in Helsinki when a 3rd rate reporter asked me, essentially, who I trusted more, President Putin of Russia, or our “Intelligence” lowlifes. My instinct at the time was that we had really bad people in the form of James Comey, McCabe (whose wife was being helped out by Crooked Hillary while Crooked was under investigation!), Brennan, Peter Strzok (whose wife is at the SEC) & his lover, Lisa Page. Now add McGonigal & other slime to the list. Who would you choose, Putin or these Misfits?”

Trump has repeatedly been criticized for siding with Putin both as president and since he left the White House. In 2018 following his disgusting defense of Putin in Helsinki, Chuck Schumer said that “in the entire history of our country, Americans have never seen a president of the United States support an American adversary” in the way Trump has Putin.

“For the president of the United States to side with President Putin against American law enforcement, American defense officials, and American intelligence agencies is thoughtless, dangerous, and weak,” Schumer tweeted. “The president is putting himself over our country.”

Trump did eventually say he misspoke, but with this newest post on Truth Social, we see that he was telling the truth at the press conference in Helsinki.

And people on Twitter were equally disgusted, and shocked:
