The Trump/Putin Saga: A Song of Ice and Fire

If you are not a Game of Thrones fan, you are missing out on a chance to witness one of the greatest shows these days. A Song of Ice and Fire is a series of fantasy novels on which the epic season is based.

American President Donald Trump and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin fit right into the novel but the fact that these two are willing to work together now makes this all the more interesting.

President Trump has been facing a barrage of propaganda not just from the local and international media, but his own administration as well. Him going forward and strengthening the ties with the once rivals Russia isn’t sitting well with the Republican Party as well as the Democrats.

How The American News Media Embarrassed Themselves and Their President in Front of president Putin and the World at the Helsinki Summit

“In Helsinki, I had a great meeting with Putin. We discussed everything. … We got along really well. By the way, that’s a good thing, not a bad thing. Now we’re being hindered by the Russian hoax — it’s a hoax, OK?”, Trump said while addressing a rally in Pennsylvania.

The President decried the trick used by Trump’s National Security team which earlier briefed the White House on the pervasive scheme used by Russia to interfere in the US political system in a bid to divide the country. However, ever since the meeting with his Russian counterpart, President Trump has been firm as a rock on his stance that it is time the US should move forward with Russia instead of playing the blame game.

President Putin has also been quite welcoming of the President Trump willing to strengthen the bilateral ties between the two superpowers on all fronts despite competing for the global crown, much like the Game of Thrones.

Gone are the days when the President and his administration used to have unified views on key issues like the Russian ties, aren’t they? With President Trump’s views in complete contradiction with his administration, it is time for the two to get on the same page before there are any further speculations of something cooking up.

With media and the outside world saying that there are two foreign policies, Trump’s and his administration’s, the situation is not well as these might well keep President Trump form going on and develop a strong relationship with Russia, which is the need of the hour. The United States does not need more enemies than it already has and making an enemy a friend with both sides benefitting is a good bargain, isn’t it?
