Trump thanks Putin for booting United States diplomats out of Russian Federation

US Russia Sanctions

President Putin ordered 755 United States diplomats to leave the country after Congress passed the sanctions bill. "If the sanctions overwhelmingly passed by Congress last week have sent any message to Moscow, it was that Mr. Trump's hands are tied in dealing with Moscow, for years to come".

Trump said Democrats are the ones who should be investigated for collusion, not him.

Trump's reasoning for thanking Putin: The move would "save a lot of money" by cutting the federal payroll.

Of course, as the president was embarrassing himself and the country on the world stage, those who have some understanding of US foreign policy couldn't believe their ears.

Then in 2012, he chose to go back to the presidency, and by 2024, the country will certainly be thinking about his successor. The underlying message is distinctly authoritarian: If only the leader had total control, everything would be better for the country and the people. - Trump restated his ultimatum to North Korean leadership to stop threatening the USA or "face fire and fury like the world has never seen". Twenty-four hours later, he was repeating his "Russia hoax" talking points at a rally in West Virginia.

Ever since the DOJ and congressional Russian Federation probes launched, the question has been whether or not the Trump administration knowingly and intentionally colluded with Russian Federation. It was a dramatic escalation of the simmering rift between the US and Russia over many things, most recently, Russian election meddling. These are key American institutions threatened and potentially weakened by Trump, which is why I think Putin will still consider his bet on Trump worthwhile. Russian state media released several photographs this week of a shirtless Putin boating and fishing on a Siberian lake.

President Donald Trump and Russia's President Vladimir Putin speak during their meeting on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, on July 7. When Obama finally levied sanctions on Russian Federation over Putin's 2014 invasion of Ukraine and annexation of Crimea, Putin responded by banning many imported foodstuffs. Many of those affected are likely to be local Russian staffers. Russian Federation - is very important for Russian Federation - oil.

Amusing how nobody except Putin gets to push him around. Sanctions that strike at the gang's investments overseas are an excellent way to do that. "President Trump is dedicated to honoring these men and women who fought valiantly for our country". But he most definitely is working, not on vacation.

Other than to say she was doing a "very good job" and that he was "very proud" of her, the president provided no additional comment when asked if McConnell's wife, Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao could mediate the apparent tensions.

That'll teach the national security adviser to cross Trump's Kremlin cohort.

Employing a folk saying to describe how the turbulence inside the White House is viewed in Moscow's official circles, the source said: "The dog barks, and the caravan moves on". Trump reluctantly signed the legislation into law despite voicing serious reservations about its constitutionality.
