Meyers pointed to footage of Trump at a super PAC fundraiser at his Florida resort Wednesday. As Ukrainians waited fearfully for its neighborâ€™s imminent assault on their country, Trump was on the event stage lauding the Russian presidentâ€™s strategy.
â€œI mean, heâ€™s taking over a country for $2 worth of sanctions, Iâ€™d say thatâ€™s pretty smart,â€ Trump told attendees. â€œHeâ€™s taking over a country … a great piece of land with a lot of people, and just walking right in.â€
Meyers expressed disgust at the property mogulâ€™s thinking.
â€œFirst of all, stop talking about everything like itâ€™s a fucking real estate deal. Itâ€™s an illegal war against a sovereign nation, not an empty lot in Atlantic City,â€ he said.
