Trump on Putin’s Bounties on US Troops: ‘I Have Never Discussed It with Him’

Trump has had eight conversations with Vladimir Putin since he learned that Russia paid Taliban militants to kill U.S. troops in Afghanistan. But during an interview with Axios’ Jonathan Swan on Tuesday Trump admitted that in all these conversations with Putin he never broached the subject of the bounties.

“I have never discussed it with him,” Trump said.
