With an administration as messy as Donald Trump's, it is no wonder the president requires his staffers to keep their mouths shut about what they see. John McCain, who strongly condemned the call in a statement on Tuesday, saying an American president shouldn't congratulate "dictators on winning sham elections".
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida disapproved of Trump making the call, but he said he was more disappointed by leaks from the White House that revealed Trump's national security advisers urged the President not to congratulate Putin before the call.

According to accounts from the White House and the Kremlin, Trump did neither.
Allies, most notably in Britain, were furious about Trump's lack of solidarity after a chemical weapons attack on double agent Sergei Skripal in a small English town.
Trump's call came at a period of heightened tensions between the two nations after the White House imposed sanctions on Russian Federation for its interference in the 2016 USA election and other "malicious cyberattacks". Sanders insisted that the administration has scolded Putin at the appropriate times.
