Today President Trump has his private pow-wow session with President Putin of Russia. Never minding the traitorous implications of insisting there be no other American’s in the private 2 hour discussion; upon completion, President Trump had some new things to say about the Russia interference in the 2016 Presidential election.

With Trump’s pending ties to Russia meddling in the US election it’s not surprising that he wants to discredit anything tying him to evidence of tampering. That said every major US intelligence agency (Intelligence office, FBI, CIA, NSA) have all agreed that Russia meddled in the 2016 US election. There is no denying this fact.

So why today, did President Trump take President Putin at his word when he was done with his private meeting today? He came out and said that “President Putin says it’s not Russia. I don’t see any reason why it should be” (Trump, NBC, 7/16/2018). What does Putin have over Trump, or is there really a full collusion thing going on here? After his saying that he believes Putin he went on to blame democrats in his typical fashion.

It does seem pretty suspicious that he’d agree to a meeting with someone, known to have messed with our elections to tip the scaled in his favor, and with no other American’s present. It seems even more suspicious that he’d go as far as to attempt to discredit, his own intelligence agencies in favor of the word of the person who actually did the meddling, not to mention, if he stood for the United States the way he claims, he should have used this chance to rebuke Putin for interfering in our election process.

This November can’t get here soon enough. Make sure you get out and vote people. We need our Republicans put back into check because they obviously cannot run our country and they are led by someone who has no loyalty to the United States.
