Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump defended Russian President Vladimir Putin against accusations that he has assassinated political adversaries and journalists, responding to criticism from his rivals over his embrace of praise from the Russian leader.
"Nobody has proven that he's killed anyone. . . . He's always denied it. It's never been proven that he's killed anybody," Trump said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday. "You're supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, at least in our country. It has not been proven that he's killed reporters."
