Does Trump Believe Putin?

Trump was played by Putin? Not compared to Obama

Believing Vladimir Putin's denials of Russia's election meddling.

One amendment reportedly being considered in the State Duma would allow the state's Prosecutor General's office to block "undesirable organizations" from posting their content on Russia's internet. Clapper also said it is "astounding" that Trump speaks only ambiguously about Russian espionage in the U.S.

The issue of Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election followed President Donald Trump on his 12-day trip through five Asian nations.

Like Gogol's character, he avoided all major events on the first day of the summit and ignored two "program" meetings not to come across his Russian counterpart once more (Vladimir Putin participated in both of them). Vedomosti later reported that the Dumawas considering a much broader move, covering other Western and global press outlets.

Whatever the explanations of USA intelligence officials, there will be little to cavil about if it's true that Putin has moved to put the squeeze on Pyongyang. Putin tapped Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to represent Russian Federation in the historic meetings.

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.

"What I said is that I believe [Putin] believes that", he said.

For those who no longer find it jaw-dropping to hear a USA president go to such lengths to defend such an unsavory foreign leader who has demonstrated so frequently that he is no American ally, or even particularly trustworthy, pay attention to the words of warning from Messrs. "It's something that I think that Mr. Trump should be ashamed of", Brennan said on CNN.

To the editor: I thought I had heard everything until I read that our president believed Putin over his own intelligence agencies.

In a declassified report released in January, four US intelligence agencies said the Russian government interfered in the the 2016 presidential election to undermine Hillary Clinton, and help Trump. All presidents have had bad, look at the last 8 years of the previous administration for proof. Donald told friends he accepted what the girls told him: "She said it's her, not me". What if it's not just that he's being "played" by Putin, as former intelligence officials say, but that he's a willing organ? Trump had much to say Saturday about last week's smiles and handshakes with Putin and repeated denials of interference in the US from the former KGB spymaster.

Now, I'm not saying Trump is risking anything like what Stalin was faced with, at least not at this point. On Face the Nation on CBS, panelist Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic told host John Dickerson that Trump, "in his heart", seems to believe that the Russian Federation controversy is manufactured by his enemies.

The Presidents' statement is posted to the State Department website and on the Kremlin website.

But in every country Trump visited, none of the leaders entered trade negotiations or offered significant concessions to the former real estate magnate and Art of the Deal author.
