President Trump was in Vietnam (Vietnam!) when he ran into Russia’s President Vladimir Putin.
The purported occasion was the annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation conference in Da Nang, South Vietnam.
The president said about the visit that Vladimir Putin once again denied meddling in the U.S. election.
This is something we already know. Also, Putin says ‘hi.’
Despite President Trump and Russian President Putin wearing “matching outfits” and waving at the same time, the Resistance media still didn’t find any proof of “collusion.”
However, the left-wing, dishonest media did try to pretend that Donald Trump said he “believed” Putin when he said that he didn’t meddle in the U.S. election.
“Every time he sees me he says, ‘I didn’t do that,’ and I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it,” Trump said onboard Air Force One. “But he says, ‘I didn’t do that.’ I think he is very insulted by it, if you want to know the truth. Don’t forget. All he said was he never did that, he didn’t do that. I think he is very insulted by it, which is not a good thing for our country.”
President Trump thus said that Putin claims he didn’t meddle in the election and he believes that Putin means it. He also said that “insulting” Putin isn’t helpful for the country. Furthermore, he adds context to what he means when he refers to the Democrats’ involvement in the Russian election meddling story.
“I can’t stand there and argue with him,” Trump continued, “I would rather have him get out of Syria, to be honest with you. I would rather have, I would rather him—get to work with him on the Ukraine rather than standing and arguing about whether or not—because that whole thing was set up by the Democrats. I mean, they ought to look at Podesta, they ought to look at all the things that they have done with the phony dossier. Those are the big events.”
ABC News admitted that Trump did not dispute Putin meddled in the election: “Asked if he believed Putin’s denial, the president didn’t directly answer but suggested he didn’t directly counter Putin’s denial.”
This is called diplomacy. Until investigation produces a smoking gun that leads directly to the Kremlin, the U.S. can only cast aspersions and pressure Putin about the issue.
It is undeniable that the Russians did try to influence the election, but it is also unclear what the motive was. Whether it was the general prosecutor Yuri Chaika being involved with Natalia Veselnitskaya attempting to bait the Trump campaign with Hillary dirt to patently ridiculous Facebook ads, we know that Russians got involved.
However, the notion that Putin and Trump struck some secret deal before the election is absolutely without legs at this point.
If one considers the Clinton State Dept.-appoved deal that turned over Uranium supplies to the Russians after hefty donations to the Clinton Foundation, one can confidently say there is more proof of Putin-Clinton collusion than Putin-Trump.
Overall, it cannot be claimed that Putin wanted Trump anymore than he wanted Hillary Clinton; the goal of Russian active measures was to sow chaos in the U.S. election system, undermine the legitimacy of the president, and weaken any incoming president.
Thanks to the dishonest and one-sided U.S. media, this has largely been “mission accomplished.”
Contrary to the Obama exchange with a Russian leader, Trump did not promise Putin more “flexibility” after his “last election.”
It seems like the Russia collusion stories in the media all point in one direction: Towards Trump.
No chance of collusion here, on the streets of Da Nang in South Vietnam.
If you examine these pictures, it’s almost like Putin and Trump set them up to drive his political adversaries wild.
One can only speculate about what is being said with each gesture.
Each facial expression and exchanging glance.
Each secretive smile and fist pump.
The knowing laugh. What could it be about? You’ll read all about some more speculative theories in the U.S. press, no doubt.
On the other hand, it could be that it was a typical conversation between two world leaders.
But when President Trump’s involved, nothing can be typical.
There is just so much that is suggestive about the president’s meeting with Vladimir Putin.
If there is anything that would fuel the Russia speculation further, it’s secretive photos like these.
