Video: Menendez Reacts to Putin Meeting Cancellation, Michael Cohen

“It is ironic that this President cannot find his spine to confront Vladimir Putin, but can challenge the closest allies the United States has across the globe.”

WASHINGTON – Today, Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, spoke to CNN’s Kate Bolduan and responded to the news that President Trump cancelled his planned meeting with Vladimir Putin at the G20. Menendez also reacted to news about Michael Cohen’s guilty plea. 

“This was [President Trump’s] opportunity to redeem himself, stand up for American values, stand up for international law, stand up for our own national security interests, and he had that opportunity and instead he's abdicating it.” Menendez said. “It is ironic that this President cannot find his spine to confront Vladimir Putin but can challenge the closest allies the United States has across the globe.”
