President Trump has taken much backlash from both sides after he said Tuesday that he called Russian President Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on his re-election win.

Media reports emerged afterward that Trump had been told by his advisers NOT to congratulate, and Wednesday it was reported that White House chief of staff John Kelly was furious over leaked reports from the White House.

President Trump slapped down the whole debacle in a two-part Wednesday afternoon Twitter post:

“I called President Putin of Russia to congratulate him on his election victory (in past, Obama called him also). The Fake News Media is crazed because they wanted me to excoriate him. They are wrong! Getting along with Russia (and others) is a good thing, not a bad thing…….”

…..They can help solve problems with North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, ISIS, Iran and even the coming Arms Race. Bush tried to get along, but didn’t have the “smarts.” Obama and Clinton tried, but didn’t have the energy or chemistry (remember RESET). PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH!
