Historic Bilateral Press Conference Between President Trump and President Putin at the Helsinki Summit

The biggest event of the year, by political standards, is finally here as the Presidents of two Super Powers, the United States of America and Russia, have gathered at Helsinki, Finland. The two have never been this close as the Presidents answer questions at the summit standing side by side.

While there were speculations, if not accusations, by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), on Russian President Vladimir Putin saying that Russia played a role in the 2016 Elections in the United States. In the press conference on Monday, the American President Donald Trump brushed aside the accusations leveled on President Putin, saying that he doesn’t ‘see any reason why’ the country would be interested in interfering in a foreign country’s elections. By doing so, the President refused to endorse the United States intelligence agency’s claims, which may come as a surprising move for so many of us, however, if the two countries are planning to move forward together, the move may well be for the greater good of both the nations.

“I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today,” said President Trump earlier today.

Earlier, the House Speaker, Paul Ryan bashed Russia on the elections interference, saying:

“There is no question that Russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world. That is not just the finding of the American intelligence community but also the House Committee on Intelligence”

While talking about his personal likings, President Putin said that he was in favor of President Trump winning the elections as his views on normalizing Russian relations coincided with his own views as this is the way forward for both the countries.

The first ever bilateral summit promises to be a game changer for the two nations as depicted by President Trump’s statements which show a strong desire to move forward instead of leveling accusations on each other.

“We should have, frankly, had this dialogue a long time ago. I think that we’re all to blame. I think that the United States has now stepped forward along with Russia,” believes the Republican, saying that the false probes have kept the two countries apart.

Who would have thought we’d see President Trump winking at his Russian counterpart? Well, the Finnish capital has something in the air that is making things happen. ‘I really think the world wants to see us get along’ said President Trump as he winked at President Putin during a photo-call in Helsinki.

The only anomaly at the event was observed when a man named Sam Husseini was forcibly escorted out of the hall where the summit was taking place as he flashed a banner reading ‘Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty’ seconds before the start of the press conference.

Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt, said the Republican hours before the big meet-up at Presidential Palace, Helsinki.
