President Trump's trust in Putin questionable | Letters


"Iran has never had a better friend than Obama", Donald Trump tweeted in December 2013, as US negotiators were finalizing a deal with Iran over the country's nuclear program. To be sure, Brennan worked under former POTUS Barack Obama. The White House hurried to dot the i's, saying that the meeting between Trump and Putin would not take place because of the busy schedule of the United States president.

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" puzzled over President Donald Trump "cozying up to Vladimir Putin" over the weekend despite the indictments and guilty pleas of campaign associates in the Russian Federation investigation. "And once again, we're in November of this presidency and still struggling with that". Or at least to make an effort not to sound weak and naïve. When asked whether he raised the matter of Russia's interference in the 2016 US elections, the president responded: "Every time he sees me, he says, 'I didn't do that.' And I believe, I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it".

A USA intelligence official told VOA there has been no change to the assessment about Russia's efforts to influence last year's election. "And this artificial Democratic hit job gets in the way".

Trump's latest statement that he believed the former secret police operative's denial of election interference rather than our 17 intelligence agencies says everything we need to know about this president. "He said he didn't meddle". "He's like, 'She looked in my eyes and said she wasn't cheating, '" Noah joked as he mocked Trump, before adding, "And then the guy in the bed said so too and I don't even know him so why would he lie?" "And now, if you don't mind, I believe it's time for me to be-leaving".

"I have been asked it a million times; it is true, yeah of course. He did not do what they're saying he did".

The Reuters/Ipsos poll was conducted in early November online in English throughout the United States. And, of course, nearly all of the tax cuts will go to the top one percent.

"What do you mean you believe him?"

"It's really confounding... It would be so much simpler if the president would just come out and say Russian Federation obviously interfered with our election and we're going to investigate that and stop them from doing it going forward, and I'll tell that to Vladimir Putin's face", said Pace. Trump has given credence to Putin's statements but also said Sunday that he believes in USA intelligence agencies, which have said Russian Federation was involved in the election. So did former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who appeared on "State of the Union" at Brennan's side. But that doesn't invalidate the findings of dozens of intelligence professionals who looked at Russia's activities throughout the election process and concluded that Putin had directed a campaign to influence the 2016 presidential contest.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats has said there is no dispute in the intelligence community about Russia's meddling in the election.

At the same forum, CIA Director Mike Pompeo was asked whether Russian Federation intervened in the 2016 election. "This threat is real".

The Russian issue has clouded Trump's first year in office.

"He said he didn't meddle", Trump told reporters on an Air Force One flight to Hanoi, Vietnam. 'I believe he believes what he believes and he believes that I believe what I believe even though he believes what I don't believe. As to whether I believe it or not, I'm with our agencies, especially as now constituted with their leadership. This is a contradiction to all the information that our intelligence agencies have amassed.

In Hanoi on Sunday, Trump also pointed to sanctions the United States has imposed on Russian Federation as punishment for election meddling. "People don't realize Russian Federation has been very, very heavily sanctioned". "They were sanctioned at a very high level, and that took place very recently", he said. Those are very important things. "Every time he sees me, he says, 'I didn't do that....' Putin said he did not do what they said he did". Speier said Trump's attitude is rooted in his election victory over Hillary Clinton.

It was clear that Trump did his best to avoid serious negotiations with Putin.

"Vladimir Putin does not have America's interests at heart", McCain added. For example, the head of the White House believes that the Russian Federation did not interfere in the U.S. presidential election. "The President is not the chairman of the board of elections in this country", Kellyanne Conway remarked to Martha Raddatz on ABC News' This Week.

Nevertheless, even during a brief dialogue, the two presidents gave the go-ahead for the publication of the text of the joint statement on Syria, which had been carefully coordinated the foreign policy departments of Russian Federation and the United States. "He wants to deal with President Putin and other world leaders. on major issues like global security, on trade, perhaps, on-in other countries, on combating ISIS, on a nuclearized North Korea".
