Trump Gets Plane of Med. Supplies from Russia; Critics: Trump Fell into a Russian Publicity Ploy

Russia claimed today (April 1, 2020) that it sent a plane full of medical supplies to the U.S. -- two days after a secret phone call between President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin, according to the Daily Beast website.

Footage from the plane  broadcast by Russian state media showed stacks of cardboard boxes in the cargo hold, but it was not known exactly what these hundreds of boxes contained.

Critics have said that, in accepting help from Russia, the White House is falling for a Kremlin public relations ploy.

Putin spokesman Dmitri Peskov told reporters that Trump "gratefully accepted" the aid during a phone call between the two on March 30.
