As criticism continues to fly over President Donald Trump's obsequiousness towards Vladimir Putin, a White House official said Friday that Trump was being "sarcastic" when he thanked Putin for expelling U.S. diplomatic staff from Russia. On Thursday, Trump broke nearly two weeks of silence on the Russian president's order, which cut U.S. embassy and consulate staff by nearly two thirds. Trump said, "I'm very thankful that he let go of a large number of people because now we have a smaller payroll," adding "there's no real reason for them to go back." His remarks were immediately denounced by current and former U.S. officials who have served both Republican and Democratic administrations.
