Reagan 2.0: Trump tells his pal Putin to hold off releasing US hostage

Donald Trump would no doubt tell you he was a better president than Ronald Reagan … and Abraham Lincoln … and George Washington. But, as we all know, Trump just says things, and if they’re even tangentially connected to the truth, it’s usually just an accident.

That said, in at least one significant way, Trump is hoping to seriously one-up the Gipper, who—not for nothing—led us down the faux-patriotic primrose path to the front gate of the abattoir

Wednesday night, after a long day putting the finishing touches on his health care, infrastructure, and reproductive rights plans (all available in two weeks!), Trump promised that Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich, who’s currently being detained in Russia and has been jailed for a year, would be released “almost immediately” after the November election—but only if Trump wins.

“Evan Gershkovich, the Reporter from The Wall Street Journal, who is being held by Russia, will be released almost immediately after the Election, but definitely before I assume Office,” Trump wrote on Truth Social. “He will be HOME, SAFE, AND WITH HIS FAMILY. Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, will do that for me, but not for anyone else, and WE WILL BE PAYING NOTHING!”
