Trump Slams Grinner ‘Potentially Spoiled Person’ While Criticizing Prisoner Swap

Published on

Former President Donald Trump criticized a proposed deal to swap WNBA player Brittney Griner for a Russian arms dealer, calling Griner a “potentially spoiled person.”

The Biden administration said it is willing to trade Griner and detained former marine Paul Whelan for Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout, who is currently serving a 25-year prison sentence.

Trump weighed in on the disgraced WNBA star who walked off the court in 2020 during a pregame warmup before the playing of the national anthem, during an interview on “The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show.”

“She went in there loaded up with drugs into a hostile territory where they’re very vigilant about drugs. They don’t like drugs,” Trump said. “And she got caught. And now we’re supposed to get her out – and she makes, you know, a lot of money, I guess – and we’re supposed to get her out for an absolute killer and one of the biggest arms dealers in the world.”

Among other things, Bout was accused of selling weapons to Al Qaeda and the Taliban, the New York Times reported.

“He’s going to get a free card, and we’re gonna get her,” Trump said. “She knew you don’t go in there loaded up with drugs, and she admitted it. I assume she admitted it without too much force because it is what it is.”

The former president added: “It certainly doesn’t seem like a very good trade, does it? He’s an absolute– one of the worst in the world, and he’s going to be given his freedom because a potentially spoiled person goes into Russia loaded up with drugs.”
