Keating Criticizing Trump Following Putin Summit

Congressman Bill Keating

WASHINGTON –Bill Keating, the 9th district Congressman who represents the Cape and Islands and the South Shore, is calling on members of congress to denounce president Donald Trump for comments he made yesterday at a joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

During the appearance in Helsinki, Trump said Putin strongly denied meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump did not publicly challenge Putin’s claims, a move many in Congress in both parties are criticizing.

Keating is calling Trump’s actions at the summit an immediate threat to national security.

“Today, the President of the United States stood next to the person who directed an attack on our country and instead of standing tall for America, he blamed us and our past leadership for Russia’s aggression. It was impossible to distinguish his words from Russian propaganda,” Keating said in a statement.
