President Trump has been furiously working the phones in his first few days at the desk in the Oval Office, and no phone call was more highly anticipated than the one that he made to Vladimir Putin.
The democrats used Trump’s proposed diplomacy with Russia as a scapegoat for their embarrassing electoral loss in 2016, blaming Putin and the Kremlin for “interfering” in the U.S. election – a claim that has been thoroughly debunked and denied by those truly in the know. Now, as their first phone call has been documented, only positive reactions are being had by those who witnessed the historic event, while the liberals continue to sully the very notion of diplomatic relations with the Asian superpower.
“As his top aides looked on, Trump sat in the Oval Office and spoke with the Russian president on his desk phone, at one point peering out the windows at the White Housejournalists watching from across the Rose Garden.
“The pair discussed combating terrorism, confronting Islamic State militants, the crisis in Ukraine and the Iranian nuclear deal, according to a statement from the Kremlin. Moscow said the topic of easing U.S. sanctions against Russia over its 2014 annexation of Crimea did not come up.
“And the men agreed to a set a possible date and venue for a personal meeting, and vowed to maintain “regular personal contacts,” the Kremlin statement said.
“In its own statement after the one-hour phone call, the White House said, ‘The positive call was a significant start to improving the relationship between the United States and Russia that is in need of repair. Both President Trump and President Putin are hopeful that after today’s call the two sides can move quickly to tackle terrorism and other important issues of mutual concern.’”
Again, the nonsensical non-sequiturs of the left bear no true resemblance to the reality of the political situation between the U.S. and Russia. With Barack Obama finally gone from the White House, the hard work of brokering peaceful relations with Putin can truly begin.
