Ivanka Trump is hanging out with Vladimir Putin's girlfriend, which is only perpetuating rumors that Donald Trump has strong ties and a personal relationship with the Russian leader. Back in March, US Weekly reported that Wendi Deng Murdoch, ex-wife of Rupert Murdoch, started dating the autocrat. Well, everyone has a type—hers just happens to be "evil."
Wendi Deng Murdoch and Ivanka Trump have been friends for years, but their very public joint vacation is definitely raising eyebrows. The timing could not have been worse, seeing that the Republican nominee is in the midst of dealing with allegations that he has a vested interested in Russia.
On Sunday, The New York Times reported that a secret ledger shows that Trump’s current campaign manager, Paul Manafort, accepted over 12 million dollars in payments from Pro-Russian Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.
Also worth noting is the speculation that Trump is refusing to release his tax returns because they would reveal debts owed to Russian business interests.
And we can't forget that Trump has often flip-flopped about having a personal relationship with Putin.
At this point, Putin and Trump are acting like middle schoolers who obviously have a crush on one another, but refuse to say it out loud.
It's also being reported that Wendi Deng Murdoch set up Ivanka Trump with her husband Jared Kushner. Maybe The Donald thanked her for the son-in-law by setting her up with Putin.
