Stephanie Cutter, President Obama's 2012 deputy campaign manager and an ABC contributor, said that there is a "growing sense" in the country that President Trump is being played by the leaders of North Korea and Russia, on ABC's 'This Week' roundtable:
STEPHANIE CUTTER, ABC NEWS: Yes, you know, I think that there is a growing sense, and I think the poll numbers show it, that President Trump is being manipulated by Vladimir Putin and being manipulated by North Korea.
That he’s lost hold of our national security. Alex [Castellanos, a Republican strategist], I know what you’re going to say, and I think the – the fact that you did see Republicans speaking out this week more so than they have previously to stand with our intelligence and to say that what Donald Trump did standing next to Vladimir Putin and siding with the Russians and using Russian talking points against American interests was a mistake.
Now the question is whether or not Republicans will actually do something about it rather than just saying it’s – giving a statement.
