"accusations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election."

It would be rude not to express his gratitude to Putin for having done so!

It's completely unnerving to have Trump and Putin talk without complete surveillance and recording.

No, he should show the real and true gratitude to Hillary for not visiting Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan.

Trump and his supporters will bend over for Putin.

Putin, Xi, and Kim all dictators who kill whomever gets in the way of their plans to rule for life. Trump hoping to follow in their footsteps but, luckily, the rule of law in the US still basically works.

So you acknowledge that if that's all Hilary Clinton needed to do to win Trump must have been a mediocre and undeserving candidate who won on account of his opponent's mistakes rather than his own merits.

A reply is optional. I won't be bothering to read it.

Mueller... Mueller... anyone?

Whatever happened to that guy?

Is he still stapling paperwork together?

ROFL.

Har!

"Trump has described a special counsel investigation into possible collusion between Trump campaign aides and Russia as a political witch hunt."

@burningbushcla68cochiseFritzX Mueller... Mueller... anyone?

Thanks for bringing up the ongoing Mueller investigation I know you all are just here to flame, but you bring up a good point. Trump has been effective at taking media attention away from the Mueller investigation, and also taking attention from his payments to porn stars and prostitutes, his ties to the underworld in the US and 'abroad', his nepotism, conflicts of interest, measures to undermine environmental, worker and consumer protection legislation, Americans losing healthcare with no adequate replacement, among so many others.

Of course Trump doesn’t see Putin as an “enemy” – how could your 2016 Shadow Presidential Campaign Manager be your enemy? Of course Putin is an enemy to all the democratic nations of the world and almost all of the Russian people who he lies, steals from, and denies basic human rights.

But after insulting our allies who have stood shoulder to shoulder with us for over 50 years, and contributed heavily after the Sep 11th 2001 terrorist attacks, Trump will grovel before Putin for his invaluable assistance in getting him elected, and the two will then collude to do the same thing in the 2018 and 2020 US elections.

Welcome to Amerika 2018…

He did a good job. That should put to rest any talk of him breaking the law to go after Trump.

Liberals and their supporters...support.......uhh....do they support anything besides taking other people’s money?

So you acknowledge that if that's all Hilary Clinton needed to do to win Trump must have been a mediocre and undeserving candidate who won on account of his opponent's mistakes rather than his own merits.

No, I forgot to add, she had the personality of a cactus.

Great.

So what do you think about Putin and what should our response be to the election meddling?

@Burning Bush

For someone who is under intense scrutiny for supposed Russia ties, is this really wise? Trump meeting with Putin alone for one-hour seems highly suspicious.

Trump planning one-on-one meeting with Putin without aides present: report

Not the actions of an innocent man!

Great.

What do you think Trump should do? He’s trying to get Europe to spend more money he’s trying to get Europe to buy gas from the US, so if he is a stooge of Putin and wants. to help Russia, this is not the way of going about it.

Bass: What do you think Trump should do?

Stop undercutting our own intelligence agencies. Stop praising Putun. Stop defending him.

That would be a good start.

No way!!We should all see other states as enemies otherwise how to get additional funding to NATO? How to justify having military bases around the world? And, most important one- if are not afraid of each other how will arms manufacturers make money?

Add more hatred, control the world.

So Trump's new best friends are Putin – khuilo, Xi and Chairman Cheato. Trump's New World Order.

@asakaze And, most important one- if are not afraid of each other how will arms manufacturers make money?

Good question. But on the flip side, if states don't have at least a modicum of fear of other states, especially a fear of states that want to expand their empires (looking at the US, Russia, China, Turkey, Iran, Israel and others), then what's to stop the predator states from overrunning states that are perhaps not 'afraid enough'?

Add more hatred, control the world.

I agree. Are you working to convince your country's political leaders to keep their military away from areas outside your borders?

There is no question the world's arms manufacturers have way too much power. And the world's oil and gas industries plus their financial backers are happy to see that.

I myself believe that European countries should slash taxes on the rich while boosting military spending and meanwhile balance the budget by eliminating programs that aid the public. It just makes sense (if you're the 1%).

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Of course your Master is not your enemy.

4 ( +4 / -0 )

Trump can't criticise Russian meddling in his election because he can't bear the thought that he owes them his victory. Similar to how he fired Comey when Comey admitted his actions also helped Trump to the extent that the election result was affected.

Trump says Putin 'not my enemy'

Trump has to see his master to get further orders for his part in distrupting world trade and turning alies against the USA.

Russia has suffered from sanction and Putin uses Trump to punish other countries for their actions.

“Please Tsar may I have some more ?”

Yeah, and quietly is right because we haven't heard a peep from him in months.

May I ask, how many more years will Mueller be "quietly doing his job"?

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

As much as he puts in the nail to the whole world be his enemy, why not Putin?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

I myself believe that European countries should slash taxes on the rich while boosting military spending and meanwhile balance the budget by eliminating programs that aid the public. It just makes sense (if you're the 1%).

I propose a flat tax across the board.

With Trump abroad and accusations about meddling proceeding a palace revolution may be under way....

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The dangerous embarrasment by the name of Donald J. Trumps serves two masters: Benjamin Netanyahu in occupied Jerusalem and Vladimir Putin in Moscow. He doesn’t care how much damage he causes to the United States of America or the rest of the world.
