CLEVELAND (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, Trump’s top military advisor, Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn told Sputnik that he did not intend to "telegraph" Trump’s Russian strategy to the world.
"He wants to be more like Putin," Gohmert said of Trump on Thursday.
Gohmer explained that Putin "makes moves he didn’t really announce," citing the Russian leader’s response to the Ukraine crisis and surprise military engagement in Syria last November.
"So I think they have got a lot in common," Gohmert stated.
In a Friday interview, Trump refused to answer a question on his approach toward Russia saying, "I don’t want to tell you what I’d do, because I don’t want Putin to know what I’d do."
