“Your life is in danger, come here” After the prisoner swap with Brittney Griner, arms dealer Viktor Bout is urging former President Donald Trump to seek asylum in Russia
Former US President Donald Trump has been in a bind lately, but it probably wasn’t time for a notorious Russian arms dealer, Viktor Bout, to have to give him migration advice!
Viktor caused a stir when the US government had to trade him for bringing WNBA star Brittney Griner home from a Russian prison. Brittney was arrested for transporting illegal substances into Russia through the airport and taken to a maximum security prison.
Later, in December, the Russian and US governments agreed on a prisoner swap and the arms dealer was finally freed after 14 years in prison. In a recent interview, he spoke about the situation with the former president.
What did Viktor Bout say about Donald Trump?
In an interview with a Russian state TV channel, the 56-year-old suggested Donald seek asylum in Russia because he believed the former president’s life was in danger. The 45th President of the United States has been arrested and faces multiple charges on multiple fronts ahead of the national election.
“The legal battle now initiated in New York will not only end with a conviction and a ban on voting for Donald Trump,” said the arms dealer. “He’ll probably just be eliminated there.”
“So I think it’s in the best interests of all of humanity, and especially all of the American people, to invite Donald Trump over here to Russia to give him safety and security here,” Bout added. “To lead this uprising against the globalists and, most importantly, not to allow the American people to be eliminated.”
“Merchant of Death” Viktor Bout says he sent Donald Trump a message offering him political asylum in Russia

He also claimed to have sent Trump a telegram describing the imminent danger to his life and urging him to leave America as soon as possible. The Dealer of Death believes the US government will stage the death of their former president to secure their political agenda.
No matter how bizarre it may sound, Donald Trump faces serious charges and this legal barrier could very well hamper his campaign and greatly benefit the opposition party.
