Former US ambassador to Russia lambasts Trump for thanking Putin over expulsion of 755 diplomats

Former US ambassador to Russia lambasts Trump for thanking Putin over expulsion of 755 diplomatsThe former US Ambassador to Russia hit out at Donald Trump after he thanked Vladimir Putin for ordering the US to pull 755 of its diplomats out of Russia.
