Billionaire turned presidential candidate Donald Trump just can't stop making sense. In an interview with Fox News last week, Trump once again refused to apologize for saying he was "honored" by Russian President Vladimir Putin's praise. 

Mr. Trump strongly challeneged the Washington political establishment line on Russia, telling the interviewer that "smart people" understand a hardline approach to Russia doesn't serve America's interest.

He also asked why the United States needs "more problems" with a country that could have (and wants to have) amicable relations with the West.
