Stephanie Grisham, a former White House Press Secretary to former President Donald Trump when on ‘The View’ today and has clearly turned on him, she claimed that Trump was “afraid” of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Grisham said that Trump “really admired Putin and I saw that firsthand” and that he “feared him. I think he was afraid of him. I think the man intimidated him.”

She continued, “He loved the people who could kill anyone, including the press,” Grisham said. “Donald Trump would be 54 feet below ground hiding [if his country was invaded]. And [Ukrainian president] Volodymyr Zelensky is out there fighting for his country.”
Grisham also touched on Trump and Putin’s relationship saying, “I also think he admired him greatly. I think he wanted to be able to kill whoever spoke out against him.” Some may find it important to note that Putin invaded countries under Obama and Biden, but not under Trump.
Former President Trump didn’t have kind words for her, “She had big problems and we felt that she should work out those problems for herself. Now, like everyone else, she gets paid by a radical left-leaning publisher to say bad and untrue things.”
Grisham said that Trump “loved the dictators” and those who could “kill anyone including the press”. Many former officials part of the Trump administration have appeared to turn on the former president and become “television liberals” who make appearances and get paid to smear Trump.
While Grisham claims that Trump was “afraid” of Putin the evidence doesn’t seem to be pointing in that direction.
