Fox News Host and Daughter of US Ambassador to Russia: Trump Threw His 'Own People and Country Under the Bus'

Abby Huntsman, a Fox New host who is the daughter of current Russian ambassador Jon Huntsman, sharply criticized President Donald Trump on Twitter for his traitorous behavior at a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"No negotiation is worth throwing your own people and country under the bus," she wrote.

Huntsman joins a chorus of criticism against the president, including former CIA director John Brennan and former GOP congressman Joe Walsh.

"I will never support Trump again," Walsh said before calling Trump a "traitor."
