Picture of Trump with Putin meeting vs. Obama with Putin – See the Difference?


The 2017 G20 Summit should be remembered by the first face-to-face meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

If you ask our president what he has to say about that, it was a “tremendous meeting.”
As reported by the Los Angeles Times, President Trump and Putin agreed on a limited cease-fire in southwest Syria and discussed how to bridge their differences on Ukraine, how to end North Korea’s nuclear program and also cyber security threats.

This meeting continued longer than what was expected – almost two hours longer.
Sounds too good to be true, right?

Well, according to the left it did sound too positive.

Obtained by Reuters:

Andrew Weiss, a former National Security Council official responsible for Russia, said Trump had sent the wrong signal with upbeat body language and by not pushing Putin harder on alleged Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.

“The atmospherics were chummy,” said Weiss, who is now at Washington’s Carnegie Endowment for International Peace think tank in Washington. “The clear push from Trump to normalize U.S.-Russian relations was on display in the meeting.”

Well, maybe everybody would prefer former president Obama’s approach. Check out this comparison of how it looked the meeting between Trump and Putin versus Obama and Putin.



Now CNN comes up with a hilarious explanation, saying that Russia set a trap for President Trump and he fell right into it.

So, what was this trap again?

Jen Psaki who writes for CNN said: The Russians telegraphed in advance of the meeting that their agenda was to 1) publicly mend the relationship, 2) gain a better understanding of US policy, and 3) discuss joint concerns over terrorism. They scored on all three.

I don’t think this is a trap, since this is just what we would want to discuss.

Liberals of course got mad because their Russian interference narrative got short shrift. Russian President Putin claimed they didn’t have any connection with the election whatsoever; President Trump accepted his statement and the two presidents continued on some more pressing matters.
