Donald Trump says he discussed 'Russia hoax' with Putin – but didn't raise election meddling

General May 5, 2019

Donald Trump says he discussed 'Russia hoax' with Putin - but didn't raise election meddlingPresident Donald Trump said he discussed special counsel Robert Mueller's report with Vladimir Putin on Friday, but did not warn against the Russian president against meddling in US elections.  The White House said the two leaders spoke for more than an hour, during which they discussed the long-awaited report into Russian election interference as well as the crisis in Venezuela and the possibility of a nuclear treaty.  Mr Mueller's report was finally published earlier this month after an almost two-year investigation into Russia's attempts to sway the 2016 US presidential election and the Kremlin's potential collusion with the Trump campaign. Mr Trump said Mr Putin described the Russia investigation as "something to the effect that it started off as a mountain and it ended up being a mouse", adding the Russian president "knew there was no collusion whatsoever." The report concluded that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 election in “sweeping and systematic fashion” to aid Donald Trump and harm Hillary Clinton. It also found that members of Mr Trump's campaign "expected" to benefit from Russia's actions but did not co-ordinate or conspire with Moscow.  It was the first conversation between the pair since the release of the Mueller report Credit: Yuri Gripas  During a brief Oval Office session with reporters Friday, Mr Trump was asked if he warned Mr Putin not to meddle in the 2020 elections and he said, "we didn't discuss that." "We didn't discuss that. Really, we didn't discuss it. We discussed five or six things. We also went into great detail on various things," Mr Trump said.  Mr Trump said the bulk of the conversation focused on the ongoing crisis in Venezuela but the pair also discussed North Korea and a new arms control treaty. Mr Trump said they discussed the possibility of a new agreement limiting nuclear arms that could eventually include China in what would be a major deal between world's top three atomic powers. ….We discussed Trade, Venezuela, Ukraine, North Korea, Nuclear Arms Control and even the “Russian Hoax.” Very productive talk!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 3, 2019 "We're talking about a nuclear agreement where we make less and they make less and maybe where we get rid of some of the tremendous firepower that we have right now," he said. "So I think we're going to probably start up something very shortly between Russia and ourselves maybe to start off, and I think China will be added down the road. We'll be talking about non-proliferation, we'll be talking about a nuclear deal of some kind, and I think it'll be a very comprehensive one," he said. Mr Trump later tweeted that he and Mr Putin "had a long and very good conversation" in which they discussed the "Russian hoax" as well as trade, Ukraine and nuclear weapons treaties. In the Kremlin's readout of the phone call, the Mueller report was not mentioned. Moscow said Mr Trump had initiated the phone call and that the pair had discussed "the current state and prospects for bilateral relations with an emphasis on economic cooperation."

  • Michael Bloomberg robbed the DNC

    by on August 22, 2020 - 0 Comments

    Michael Bloomberg robbed the DNCWe now know how much the going rate is for a spot at the Democratic National Convention. Michael Bloomberg spoke for five minutes on Thursday night not long before the nominee itself, a role arguably more prominent than that of Bernie Sanders, the much-abused runner-up.The former New York mayor's remarks were exactly what you would expect. He began by pointing out that he is not a Democrat. He gloated about the vast amounts of money he has given to buy politicians in all parties. He quoted a children's book. He talked about the importance of experts, like the ones he deferred to when he doubled down on the brutal policing tactics that have been the subject of protests across the country. He even said "hell" twice.The best part is that he didn't even have to pay for it. Bloomberg reneged on his promise back in March to keep the thousands of paid staff members who carried him to his towering victory in the 2020 American Samoa Democratic primary onboard until the general election. He has given a whopping $18 million to the party itself and just over $4 million to other grassroots organizations this year. He also offered them some useless free office space during the lockdown.At least President Trump was watching. > After the worst debate performance in the history of politics, Michael Bloomberg, commonly known as Mini Mike, is trying to make a comeback by begging the Democrats for relevance. They treated him like a dog - and always will. Before politics, he said GREAT things about me!> > -- Donald J.
