Trump Slams Brittney Griner: She Hates Our Country!!

Media Take Out Staff |

Brittney Griner is home free but Donald Trump is not happy about her release from Russian prison.

Trump suggested Paul Whelan, a former Marine who was arrested in Russia in 2018 on espionage charges convicted in 2020. Whelan received a 16-year prison sentence.

“What kind of a deal is it to swap Brittney Griner, a basketball player who openly hates our country for the man known as ‘The Merchant of Death,'” Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social.

“What a stupid and unpatriotic embarrassment for the USA!” Trump wrote.

Griner was arrested in February for bringing vape cartridges with hashish oil into Russia. She was released in exchange for Russian arms dealer, Viktor Bout, who was serving a 25-year sentence for conspiring to kill Americans.

Trump also slammed Griner over the summer.

“She knew you don’t go in there loaded up with drugs and she admitted it. I assume she admitted it without too much force, because it is what it is,” he added. “It certainly doesn’t seem like a very good trade does it? He’s an absolute one of the worst in the world and he’s going to be given his freedom because a potentially spoiled person goes into Russia loaded up with drugs.”
