Fuming Donald Trump Defends Vladimir Putin Embrace After Damaging Leak

24 March 2018

Since his recent phone call congratulating Vladimir Putin on his re-election as Russian president, US President Donald Trump has faced backlash for his alleged fraternisation with a foreign dictator.

Trump's defence through his tweets came even as news filtered to USA news media that Trump was furious over the leak that he had not read the security briefing prior to the phone call to Moscow.

"MEDIA SO DISHONEST: (Flashback) Obama calls to congratulate Putin", Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted. He began Wednesday by railing against special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation.

The Kremlin described the phone call to congratulate Putin on his victory in the election, as "constructive" and "focused on addressing the problems in Russia-US relations", Sputnik News reported. The ABC reported administration officials as saying that it was unclear if Trump had seen the briefing memo.

September 12 - Authorities announce that the state Bureau of Criminal Investigation has handed the case over to Freeman's office. Harrity said he perceived that his life was in danger and unholstered his gun, holding it to his rib cage, pointing it downward.

"We had a very good call and I suspect that we will probably be meeting in the not too distant future to discuss the arms race... to discuss Ukraine and Syria and North Korea and various other things", Trump said. Sources also stated that U.S. president asked his new secretary of state nominee Mike Pompeo to reach out to the Russians to start to organize face-to-face between president Trump and Putin. He was also concerned about the leak as he believed continuing to leak things out is unsafe. There's nothing "special or pleasant" about Putin's winning, there's no "achievement" in winning a rigged election, and there's no "pride" or "satisfaction" to feel from a predetermined outcome (these are all the reasons the dictionary give for "congratulating" someone).

Chief of Staff John Kelly is furious that the Trump's congratulatory call was leaked, along with the content of the briefing instructing Trump not to congratulate Putin.

As he defended his actions, Trump mentioned the presidents before him and called them out for their supposed inability to "get along" with Putin and Russian Federation, in general.

The Foreign Secretary also revealed that the applications for fans to travel to Russian Federation to watch the soccer matches had fallen precipitously, from 94,000 for the World Cup in Brazil four years ago to around 24,000 this year.

If Trump isn't Putin's lackey, it's past time for him to prove it. Three of Trump's associates - former national security adviser Michael Flynn, deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates and campaign aide George Papadopoulos - have pleaded guilty to lying to investigators and agreed to cooperate.

The call revived questions about Mr. Trump's stance toward Mr. Putin just after his administration had taken its most aggressive steps against Moscow, moving last week to impose sanctions for Russia's interference in the election and other "malicious cyberattacks". "If you don't like the guy, quit!" said Republican Senator Marco Rubio.

Sanders was pressed on Trump's call with Putin, but said that the White House believes maintaining a relationship with Putin is worth it, despite some outstanding issues. One of those officials was responsible for British soccer fans headed to Russian Federation for the games, according to Johnson.
