    Default Trump sides with Russia against FBI at Helsinki summit

    Quite a time in to be living in.



    “The White House played down expectations ahead of the event, with Jon Huntsman, the US ambassador to Moscow, going as far as saying it was not a summit but a “meeting”.”

    The correct term is “18-month performance appraisal”.

    We in Germany had once a russian spy who was secretary of the chancellor. The US is topping this, they have a russian sleeper as president, and they even dont realize it. Very funny.

    US President Donald Trump has defended Russia over claims of interference in the 2016 presidential election.

    After face-to-face talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Mr Trump contradicted US intelligence agencies and said there had been no reason for Russia to meddle in the vote.

    Mr Putin reiterated that Russia had never interfered in US affairs.

    The two men held nearly two hours of closed-door talks in the Finnish capital Helsinki on Monday.

    At a news conference after the summit, President Trump was asked if he believed his own intelligence agencies or the Russian president when it came to the allegations of meddling in the elections.

    "President Putin says it's not Russia. I don't see any reason why it should be," he replied.

    US intelligence agencies concluded in 2016 that Russia was behind an effort to tip the scale of the US election against Hillary Clinton, with a state-authorised campaign of cyber attacks and fake news stories planted on social media.

    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Top trolling from the Russians:

    Trump tweets that the difficulties between Russia and the US are all the fault of the US;

    Russian Foreign Ministry retweets, “we agree”!

    Pulling Russia away from Iran and China. Class move.

    Look at the post-meeting press conference, Putin can hardly mask his relief.

    I wonder how many Gazprom executives have property in London bought via offshore companies?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Do you geniuses realise both things can be true and both criticised?

    I’m sure they do.

    If you’re so concerned about balanced criticism, why didn’t you raise it in your original post?
