Yep. Another completely secret meeting with Donny and Vlad. Two men we can all completely trust.

Trump said he would meet with Putin on the sidelines of next week's G-20 summit in Osaka, Japan, but the Kremlin noted that the White House hasn't formally requested the meeting yet.

The Kremlin is sincerely hoping the request comes soon.

Putin on one shoulder. Bolton on the other. Which voice will Trump heed?

He does, on the other hand, what’s the Democrats excuse for lacking one?

The same thing is happening with regard to Russia and it will keep going. So if we want to win a place under the sun, we simply need to get stronger, primarily in the economic sphere," he said.

So true

Trump makes decisions based on what's good for the American people. A lot of people don't seem to get this.

Because it's in their best interest.

I see that as Putin saying don't attack Iran or else. Does Russia currently have any troops stationed in Iran? If not, they probably soon will. Stupid America helping Russia extend their reach.

Nah, you're just wearing your usual partisan blinders while going down the tunnel of small vision. Those of us who are suffering directly from his administration and the GOP's actions and "policies" do get that he's only doing whats good for Trumps self and his cronies, not the American people (ALL OF US, not just the select few). You don't seem to get it because you apparantly aren't being affected by it negatively. The rich get richer, the middle class and the poor get poorer. How was that tax cut? And now trying to milk for a war? Apparantly the lesson hasn't been learned from the Bush Jr. era. The GOP cut taxes, put up a war, drove up the deficit, broke the economy (for a cash grab for the wealthy and corporate elitists)... and the exact same thing is being set up to happen again. There are warnings that our country is going to be hit again starting next year. With the trade war going on that Trumpy boy started it's questionable if the US will be able to recover like last time barely a decade ago...

Are Trump, Bolton, and Pompeo ready to fight a war against Iran and Russia with backing from Xi? The distance from Russia to Iran is shorter than America to Iran.

They would also need congress and the UN on board.

Now Puuti kins needs to see Dump in person for more instructions in Japan!

Russia's Putin says ready to hold talks with Donald Trump

https://ca.news.yahoo.com/russias-putin-says-ready-hold-125031438.html

LOL! The US currently has a weak incompetent leader!

And the Republicons are selling out the US for personal gain, so they really don't care.

Putin is thinking about that pipeline, Iran, Syria and collapse of his government. Russia hasn't been as industrial as Communist China. China is also putting the screws to Russia. The locals are complaining about Chinese companies shipping tons of people to their projects in Russia. They are screwing the locals out of jobs and sending the money back home to China.

Russia's economy is hurting something serious. They need control of that pipeline through Syria, they need the EU to collapse because their new Soviet union is sucking, and they need US to lose their credibility and allies. Dump is Puuti kins' gift that keeps on giving!

Republicons helped a traitor get elected into office.

Feel better now that you've gotten in a dig at democrats? Never mind democrats were completely irrelevant to the conversation.

Would love to see something similar here in Japan... Shinzo answering calls from the public about low wages, high taxes, govt waste of public funds etc......will never happen here of course. Ive seen similar debates / QA sessions with PM,s in other central European countries....What a difference a couple of decades make.

The US will not go to war with Iran or North Korea regardless of what they do. The US will just go as far as sanctions and empty threats. So no worries.

I keep tellin' ya'll Trump has Bolton on a tight leash. He has called off ordered strikes against Iran.
