This is the U.S. president speaking when asked if he had a response to Putin expelling more than 750 U.S. mission staff members in retaliation for the veto-proof sanctions bill Trump was forced to sign:
“I want to thank him because we’re trying to cut down our payroll and as far as I’m concerned I’m very thankful that he let go of a large number of people because now we have a smaller payroll. There’s no real reason for them to go back. I greatly appreciate the fact that we’ve been able to cut our payroll of the United States. We’re going to save a lot of money.”
