Maryland Gov. Hogan criticizes Trump, calls Putin a 'thug'

Gov. Larry Hogan added his voice to widespread criticism of President Donald Trump's Monday appearance with Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying Trump "failed to stand up for our country."

In a tweet posted Tuesday morning, Hogan wrote:

“I remember when President Ronald Reagan called the Soviet Union the evil empire. Not much has changed. Putin is a thug & his actions against our democracy are despicable. On this I agree with our intelligence community. President Trump failed to stand up for our country yesterday.”
