Donald Trump Slams Brittney Griner, Implies He Wouldn’t Help Get Her Out Of Russia

If former president Donald Trump was in office, Brittney Griner would likely have no hope of getting out of Russia any time soon.

When speaking during a podcast appearance, Trump slammed Griner as “spoiled”, and implied that he wouldn’t make deal with Russia for her release.

“She knew you don’t go in there loaded up with drugs, and she admitted it,” Trump told the Clay Travis & Buck Sexton Show. “I assume she admitted it without too much force because it is what it is, and it certainly doesn’t seem like a very good trade, does it? He’s absolutely one of the worst in the world, and he’s gonna be given his freedom because a potentially spoiled person goes into Russia loaded up with drugs.”

Donald Trump continued his rant against Brittney Griner:

“She went in there loaded up with drugs into a hostile territory where they’re very vigilant about drugs,” Trump added. “They don’t like drugs. And she got caught. And now we’re supposed to get her out — and she makes, you know, a lot of money, I guess. We’re supposed to get her out for an absolute killer and one of the biggest arms dealers in the world. Killed many Americans. Killed many people.”

Obviously, Donald Trump doesn’t agree with Joe Biden’s proposal of sending Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout back in exchange for Griner, but he doesn’t have a say in the matter at this point.

Regardless of how, I think most of us are hoping for a safe return of Brittney Griner ASAP.
