Lovers' quarrel: Trump accuses Russia of cheating on him with Assad
MOSCOW -- In a lovers' quarrel that's rocking D.C.'s foreign policy establishment, on Tuesday, failed candidate Donald Trump accused Russian President Valdimir Putin of "cheating" on him with Syria's Bashar al-Assad.
"It's as though I'm not the only man Putin loves," Tweeted an angry Trump.
"Putin is breaking international law, undermining democracy, and generally doing everything he can to support Assad - an aspiring dictator who's been rejected by his own people," wrote Trump. "Damn it, Vladimir: That was OUR love story, you bastard!"
In a series of Tweets, Trump - who moved to Russia and rescinded his American citizenship over a month ago after losing November's election to President Hillary Rodham Clinton by 3 million votes - announced he won't "tolerate being treated like Putin's sidepiece."
"Don't treat me like I treat my wives!" he said. "How come you never gave me chemical weapons?"
The Tweet storm remained unfinished as of Tuesday 4.20 p.m. EST. This story will be updated throughout the evening as new information comes in.
