Trump just sat down for an exclusive interview with Reuters and as per usual Trump made headlines.
Trump sells and he is not boring but more importantly, Trump is not afraid to tell the truth. Lessor politicians have to parse their words and focus group statements and take poll after poll to find the pulse of America.
Not Trump, he simply tells it like it is and America loves him for it.
First, he put Vladimir Putin on notice (and the Democrats for poisoning the relationship because they lost an election) for what he is doing in North Korea.
“Russia is not helping us at all with North Korea,” Trump said, “what China is helping us with, Russia is denting. In other words, Russia is making up for some of what China is doing. So the net result is not as good as it could be.”
Correct. Russia is not a world power and has been reduced to sneaky games to try to exert their waning influence.
The only people on the planet who are terrified of Russia is the Democratic party. Remember, Obama tried a reset with Putin too and Trump tried or is trying to do the same.
“He can do a lot,” Trump added about Putin, “but unfortunately we don’t have much of a relationship with Russia.”
Trump speaks straight and it is refreshing.
Speaking of someone who spoke out of both sides of his mouth, Barack Obama, Trump had some choice words for the former President.
And not only Barack but all the past administrations and the media apologists who did nothing for 25 years, except talk.
“I’d sit down, but I‘m not sure that sitting down will solve the problem,” he said before taking a well-deserved shot at Obama.
“They’ve talked for 25 years and they’ve taken advantage of our presidents, of our previous presidents.”
Trump then, unlike Obama who gave away his every move, stayed coy about military options in North Korea,
“We’re playing a very, very hard game of poker and you don’t want to reveal your hand,” he said.
Trump has to clean up their mess and at least they can do is say thank you.
If you thank God every day that we finally have the right guy sitting at the negotiating table share this everywhere.
