Although the US President invited Vladimir Putin to America according to news making the rounds, he still had harsh words for the Russian leader after the latest atrocity committed on the innocent civilians of Syria. The visit was offered by telephone last month, the official said when Trump called to congratulate Putin on his re-election.
Many dead, including women and children, in mindless CHEMICAL attack in Syria. Area of atrocity is in lockdown and encircled by Syrian Army, making it completely inaccessible to outside world. President Putin, Russia and Iran are responsible for backing Animal Assad. Big price…

While “Trump proposed holding a meeting at the White House in Washington,” Putin foreign policy aide Yury Ushakov told reporters in Moscow that some issues need to be resolved. According to a press statement released on Monday, Mr Ushakov said he expects “serious and constructive dialogue” between the two countries. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed that President Trump called Mr. Putin and extended an invitation to America.
The United States and its allies have officially condemned the poisoning to death of Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter; Russia on its part has rejected the allegations and plans to begin the process for the deportation of US diplomats from their country, a move that has been sanctioned by the Trump led administration
The case of the Russian interference and the role it played in the 2016 US Presidential Election especially in favor of the Trump campaign is still on the front burner in the United States. In all sincerity, it seems the long-standing alliance between the two gentlemen has no end in sight.
Assad and Putin committed war crimes against the people of Syria last night and Trump is tweeting about Hillary Clinton. How long will GOP leaders remain quiet about his unfitness to govern?

President Trump said in recent weeks that he wants to meet with Putin to discuss current issues, including the campaign to pressure North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program.
Some Republican Party politicians, have criticized him for congratulating Putin’s on his re-election. Senator John McCain then said, “The US president is not leading the free world by congratulating dictators for winning the elections.” Then, with Vladimir Putin, President Trump insulted all Russian citizens who were denied the right to vote in free and fair elections. ”
Trump calls out Animal Assad for the chemical attack on Douma and actually criticizes President Putin by name. With John Bolton set to begin his tenure as National Security Advisor tomorrow, the chances of war against Iran and Syria are pretty darn high.

Although Senate Sen. Mitch McConnell said that Putin’s appeal “would not be a priority on my list.” Mr. Trump defended his decision on Twitter, noting that President Barack Obama did it in 2012. He wrote on Twitter: “The Fake News Media is crazed because they wanted me to excoriate him. They are wrong! Getting along with Russia (and others) is a good thing, not a bad thing.”
The latest chemical attack in Syria is horrific—70 dead including many children. Trump did the right thing by calling out Putin for supporting Assad. But then 5 minutes later did the wrong thing by blaming the attack on Obama. This president just can’t get out of his own way.

The man in the eye of the storm seems to be on a “no retreat no surrender” mission in mending the age-long broken walls between these two eternal rivals. Let me leave you with this as I sign off, “when was the last time a Russian leader visited the US”?
