Matt Haggman: Trump’s Meeting With Putin is an
Attack Against Our Own Nation

Miami, FL – Matt Haggman, candidate for Florida’s 27th Congressional District, had the following statement regarding yesterday’s meeting between President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin:

“Yesterday, Donald Trump had the opportunity to confront Vladimir Putin on his government's meddling in the 2016 election. Instead of taking the opportunity to condemn these actions and the role the Russian government had, Trump went the opposing route and praised Putin every chance he had," said Haggman. “Even with the recent indictment of 12 Russian spies by Robert Mueller, Trump still had the nerve to take Putin’s word when he stated Russian was not involved in 2016 election meddling.”

“For the President of the United States to publicly say he believes a foreign leader over his own intelligence team is deeply troubling and crosses the line. Attacking our justice system and intelligence community while taking Putin's word is unprecedented and constitutes treason against our nation,” continued Haggman. “These type of measures by a United States President is nothing short of shameful and a disgrace to the highest office of this great country.”
