Even though his national security team told Donald Trump specifically not congratulate Russian President Vladimir Putin on his election “win,” in that it was neither a free nor fair election, Trump went ahead and did exactly that, according to The Washington Post.

Trump also ignored the direction to chastise the Russian president for the recent poisonings in the U.K., including one earlier this month of an ex-Russian spy with a nerve agent.

Although several world leaders including Prime Minister Theresa May condemned Putin for the near-deadly attack, Trump did not mention the topic.

Nor did he bring up Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. election or attacks on the U.S. power grid.

The president characterized his phone call with the Russian dictator as “very good call,” and added, “We’ll probably be meeting in the not-too-distant future.”
