Trump is a big liar just as is his newfound buddy Vladimir Putin. Both are compulsive liars that will say what ever is needed to suit their objectives and goals at the time. It's nothing to them to tell barefaced lies right in your face even if the whole world is looking. Pay greater attention to what they actually do rather than what they say.
