President Trump and Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin talked on Saturday. This will be their first official communique, despite leftists accusing the two of spooning during the campaign.

Trump Putin riding horseOne thing is for sure. Putin will meet with a real pro, and not Obama or some other Obama administration hack who can’t even translate “easy” into Russian.

After Putin and Trump have a good laugh about Hillary Clinton’s loss, the pair will likely toast President Trump’s win. They will drink black Russians and laugh at the irony that there really are no black Russians, so no racism in Russia!

“Here’s to never having an Obama for president of Russia!” {hearty laugh by both men}

Fox News billed the meeting as:

“…a much anticipated talk about future relations between two world powers with a complicated history, including recent reports that Putin and Russia tried to influence the 2016 White House race in favor of Trump.”

trump-in-oval-officeUndoubtedly the two will discuss the sanctions Obama imposed on Russia for annexing Ukraine’s Crimea Peninsula in 2014. The annexation was widely reported by the American media as an act of aggression toward Ukraine. The media touted Ukraine as wanting a democratic government. And we all know that we can believe the American “media.”

President Trump addressed what other countries do in his inauguration speech. He said the United States will no longer impose our way of life on anybody. Don’t think leftists who call America interventionists, colonizers, or worse to appreciate President Trump minding his own business.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the president gave Putin a pass on this so-called act of aggression.

Whatever the context of the meeting, Trump will be prepared. He will know the Russians’ weak spots, as well as their strengths. Trump will play to their weaknesses, and never take his eye off their strengths.

The concern I hear is that President Trump might lift the sanctions Obama imposed on Russia. This is almost a foregone conclusion, as Obama had no reason to do so. Yet, Democrats and Republicans  have voiced widespread concern, even criticism. After all, lifelong bureaucrats should know more than a self-made billionaire when it comes to negotiating.

Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain said in a statement:

“For the sake of America’s national security and that of our allies, I hope President Trump will put an end to this speculation … and reject such a reckless course.  If he does not, I will work with my colleagues to codify sanctions against Russia into law.”

The last thing Americans need is to hear Trump takes McCain seriously.

Trump knows what he’s doing. He has said that he is prepared to review the sanctions, as part of a large effort to improve relations with the United States’ former Cold War rival. However, in typical Trump fashion, he was noncommittal recently, saying,

“We’ll see what happens. As far as the sanctions, very early to be talking about that.”

Trump made the remarks Friday alongside British Prime Minster Theresa May, whose country — as part of the European Union — also levied sanctions on Russia following its provocations in Ukraine. May has said the sanctions should remain in place. She’s also gone against Trump in his recent temporary ban on Muslim immigration.

The call to Putin is just one of five conversations that Trump had on Saturday with world leaders.  He’ll also speak with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe; German Chancellor Angela Merkel; French President Francois Hollande; and Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

You can bet that each of these world leaders wishes they were hosting “easy button” Hillary. How bad would that be for America?
