Dear Leader’s News Conference

Breaking News……

Trump, our Dear Leader, and Vlad held a news conference and it was nothing that was a surprise to anyone that has an IQ above their shoe size…..

Dear Leader did what I thought he would do….throw a hand-grenade into the pit of world affairs….

If you support dear leader’s meeting with Vlad went well….and if you oppose him then this was so many opportunities missed and nothing surprising…..for he is a weakling in the presence of Vlad…..

President Trump and Vladimir Putin met for two hours Monday—about 30 minutes longer than allotted—and both emerged afterward sounding dismissive about allegations that Russia meddled in the 2016 election. Some highlights:

  • Putin denial: The Russian president dismissed the notion of “so-called Russian interference” in the election. “I had to repeat that the Russian state never interfered, and does not plan to interfere in internal American electoral process,” he said, reports the AP.
  • Trump denial: “There was no collusion,” Trump said, per the Washington Post. “I didn’t know the president. There was nobody to collude with. There was no collusion with the campaign.”
  • A ‘disaster’: Trump said the two “spent a great deal of time” discussing the allegations, and he called the investigation into them “a disaster for our country” that has “kept us apart,” reports the Wall Street Journal. “We ran a brilliant campaign, and that’s why I’m president,” he said.
  • Desired outcome: Did Putin want Trump to win? “Yes, I did,” he said. “Because he talked about bringing the US-Russia relationship back to normal.”
  • Intel community: Asked whether he believed Putin’s denial or US intelligence reports concluding that Russia did, in fact, interfere in the election, Trump sounded skeptical of the intelligence reports. “I don’t see any reason why it would be” Russia, he said. Trump also complained about the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server in his response. Watch it here.
  • Cold War: It’s a “thing of the past,” said Putin, adding that he and Trump worked to “restore an acceptable level of trust.” On that note, Trump reiterated that he thought US-Russia relations had “never been worse” just prior to Monday’s summit. “That changed, about four hours ago,” he said.
  • A deal, with a catch: Putin suggested that US investigators could go to Russia to take part in the interrogation of 12 Russian intelligence officers recently indicted in the Robert Mueller investigation. But there’s a catch: “Let the Mueller commission send us a request, and we will do the work necessary to respond,” Putin said. “We can expand this cooperation—but we will then also expect from the US side access to people who we believe are members of the intelligence agencies.”
  • Similar praise: Putin called the meeting as “successful and useful” and said it took place in an “open and businesslike atmosphere.” Trump called the meeting “a good start, a very good start for everybody.” The two leaders met one on one, with only translators present.
  • Watch it: The White House has video of the full news conference here.

The president said that US-Russian relations have changed forever……

Personally, he looked like a star struck groupie when he was in the presence of Vlad……sad for this country…..sad for the future.

  1. He was definitely out of his league. Putin is an experienced, and supremely confident leader, whatever other countries think of him. He didn’t stay around so long by not knowing his business. I doubt he is even remotely bothered about Trump, and even less likely to be afraid of him.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Dear Leader and Vlad had review of Trump rally points……Trump is under the thumb for some reason…..we may never know but there is something hinky there….chuq

  2. I feel the talks had to start somewhere. This was not suppose to be a summit working out major problems, it was the first little step. But now that reporters didn’t get the answers they wanted – it’s back to condemnation. When Obama was there being arrogant and not-so-diplomatic in tone, relations became strained. One needs to understand the diplomacy accustomed in another country. Do you honestly feel that being critical of everything solves ANY problem?

    1. Condemnation is warranted…listen to the press conference… but neither does bowing to Vlad…..nothing good will come out of this meeting……the only thing that may be good is the Trump will bow to Putin and pull troops out of Syria. There is nothing good about what Russia has in store for the US. But I will bow to better people and wait and see. chuq

      1. Considering it was suppose to be a half hour meet and greet – they got to talk about more issues than I first expected. Like I said, one small step.

      2. The one after the dinner? It went on for quiet awhile……there is so much that should have been said instead we got what a great guy Putin is (a paraphrase not literally) chuq

      3. Plus we got a review of rally talking points about the 2016 election… many have told me….move on…LOL chuq

      4. The US has always been our way or highway….that has been the foreign policy for generations….and yes it does happen especially those that depend on us for the protection.

      5. Those that we give protection to are the first to condemn us – I’m not impressed with them in the least.
