By his attitude and behaviour towards Putin, Trump has just sunk his reelection chances. The country has probably now turned against him for such an abject and servile attitude towards Putin and Russia’s transgressions.
Putin stands there next to Trump lying thru his teeth about Russian military operatives interfering in the U.S. electoral process while Trump stands next to him nodding in agreement.
Trump and the White House cannot separate Russian interference in the 2016 election from collusion between his campaign and Russian personnel.
Remember: the Russians hacked into the Democratic database and did nothing to target the Republicans because they wanted Trump to beat Hillary Clinton.
Also Trump has failed, in his speech standing next to Putin, to directly condemn Russian interference in the 2016 election, despite all the US intelligence agencies stating they did.
Thank God Mueller is continuing with his investigation and Trump is unable to prevent him from finishing his work.
This is a very sad day for America when its President fails to condemn illegal actions by an adversary’s dictatorial leader. Fortunately Congress feels entirely differently about this.
