Just before kicking off his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, former reality show star Donald Trump blamed America for the relationship between the two powers. Trump’s tweets were so disturbing that even Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade couldn’t justify them. America first, amirite? Unless he’s in Helsinki meeting with a hostile foreign power. Trump went from blaming former president Barack Obama to Hillary Clinton to blaming special counsel Robert Mueller for our relationship with Russia. Trump blamed the U.S. for poor relations with Russia just before his meeting with Putin.
For sure, this meeting should not have taken place, especially after 12 more Russians were just indicted by the U.S. and that no Americans, translators, or note takers were allowed to be present during Donald’s date with Vlad. This will go down in history as a dark day for the U.S. in which we looked weak, had no leader to speak of, and failed to hold Russia accountable for tampering with our presidential election.
And as if all of that wasn’t enough, Trump winked at Putin with the cameras rolling.

While Trump is on his ‘blame America’ tour, we have to wonder what Trump has on the former reality show star.
It makes dollars and cents. Trump owes Putin billions.

When was the last time a US president winked at Russian leader???

Ok Occam’s razor. Trump knows that Putin helped him. Putin knows he helped him. There wasn’t direct collusion. Both are awkward because they both know it happened, but Trump won’t bring it up as he is in denial. Putin won’t mention it either because he doesn’t need to.

Putin has near total control over his country, BILLIONS in the bank (stolen from his country) and he gets away with killing journalists who call him out.
He is living trump’s dream.

Trump literally winked at a dictator. This is just too much.
