ANKARA — Donald Trump will soon hold a new position in Russian President Vladimir Putin’s administration, as Putin announced that he has re-appointed the U.S. president-elect to replace slain Ambassador to Turkey, Andrey Karlov.
“Donald has done [a] very good job as my President of America, but now we need him elsewhere,” Putin told The Mideast Beast. “I know that he will make Turkey great again.”
Putin’s reassignment of Trump, who was set to take office a month from Tuesday, reflects not only the void created by Karlov’s assassination but some disappointment in ‘The Donald,’ who received just 46.2 percent of the vote in November’s election.
“I knew I should have picked Ramzy instead,” Putin acknowledged, referring to Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov, who received 98 percent of the vote in the last election. “He would have never allowed voter turnout to drop below 107 percent.”
