Trump, Xi and Putin: The new triumvirate

Trump, Xi and Putin: The new triumvirate

A fly in the ointment was Senator John McCain, who urged Trump to take off his rose-tinted glasses by saying that the naive faith of the U.S. president in the sincerity of Putin's intentions threatens the United States national security. To be sure, Brennan worked under former POTUS Barack Obama.

In Tokyo, no sooner did Trump's plane leave the tarmac than the finance minister declared that "We won't do an FTA". Trump had much to say Saturday about last week's smiles and handshakes with Putin and repeated denials of interference in the USA from the former KGB spymaster.

In February, when Bill O'Reilly pointed out to Trump that Putin is "a killer", the president replied: "There are a lot of killers". Or at least to make an effort not to sound weak and naïve. We also have proof and admission now that Russian Federation bought targeted ads on Facebook and Twitter. I'd rather have him get out of Syria, to be honest with you.

First of all, clearly, if Putin and his cronies tried to influence the USA election, Putin knows all about it. "And this artificial Democratic hit job gets in the way".

November 11, 2017 (EIRNS)-Russian President Vladimir Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump signed a Joint Statement calling on all countries to build up humanitarian assistance to Syria. Is he that gullible?

TRUMP: Well, look, I can't stand there and argue with him.

"Reprehensible", Brennan said regarding Trump's attack on Clapper.

"Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?' Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!" "You can only ask so many times". "He said he didn't meddle". He did not do what they're saying he did.

Of course, Trump's willingness to be played by Putin has nothing to do with the fact that he (Trump, that is) could not say much other than "I believe him" without adding fuel to the fire of an ongoing investigation that threatens to consume Trump and his cadre of government haters, racial bigots and climate-change deniers over the issue of Russia's meddling. Trump sort of, kind of, lamely clarified that he didn't necessarily believe that Putin and Russian Federation didn't try to influence the election, just that he believed that Putin believed he didn't.

Recently, U.S. lawmakers questioned representatives of tech giants Facebook, Twitter and Google about Russia's use of their social media platforms to spread disinformation during last year's presidential campaign. This is why top intelligence officials appointed by Trump have confirmed those findings.

During his opening monologue, Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon also joked about Trump asking Putin whether he meddled in the election. CIA Director Mike Pompeo echoed those views: "I am confident that the Russians meddled in this election, as is the entire intelligence community". FBI Director Christopher Wray testified that he had "no reason to doubt the conclusions that the hard-working people who put that together came to".

On the first day of the APEC summit, Donald Trump was reminiscent of a character from Gogol's "The Marriage", who, being terrified with the ides of married life, escaped from his bride through the window. "I really believe that when they said it was just a peace offering, they meant it".
