Putin Asked Austria To Set Up Summit With Trump In Vienna

And cue the cries of 'treason' from the left...

Just a day after praising "courageous and mature" President Trump for his plans to meet with North Korea's Kim Jong-Un and five days since The Wall Street Journal reported that The White House is planning a summit between Trump and Putin, The Wall Street Journal is now reporting that Putin is seeking a meeting with Trump in Europe.

So which is it WSJ?

Over the weekend, they reported the White House is planning for a potential summit between President Donald Trump and President Vladimir Putin of Russia, "a meeting that would bring to the international stage one of the world’s most enigmatic political relationships."

Citing sources, the WSJ reports that Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, and current US ambassador to Russia, has been on the front end of talks to bring the world leaders together, an official said.

“This has been an ongoing project of Ambassador Huntsman, stretching back months, of getting a formal meeting between Putin and Trump,” the official said.

Among the numerous potential topics for discussion, any meeting between the two presidents would bring up Syria, Ukraine and nuclear-arms control, with the stated purpose of the summit would be "to resolve longstanding differences."

And now they are reporting Russian President Vladimir Putin has asked Austria’s chancellor to organize a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump in Vienna this summer and the White House is pondering the offer, a senior European official said.

So is The White House 'planning' a Summit or 'pondering' one? Who knows... but it appears to be getting closer to reality.

Chancellor Sebastian Kurz reportedly accepted the request and pledged to approach Mr. Trump, the person said.

“The Austrians have conveyed their willingness to host a meeting between President Trump and President Putin,” a U.S. National Security Council official said.

“And, although the two leaders have previously discussed the possibility of arranging a meeting, we have nothing to announce at this time.”

We noted previously that when asked about a summit taking place amid Mr. Mueller’s investigation, another administration official said, “Of course there are discussions of the political perception.”

The Russia summit “will be focused on specifics, not grand bargaining,” the official said. “Those things need to be negotiated.”

Incidentally, both presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, each held summits with Putin within six months of taking office. So far, the "deep state" has managed to withhold Trump from doing the same 16 months into his tenure.

The Left and our Out-of-Control Deep State are the True Threat to the Freedom of the American People.  Not Russia.

 

The US and Russia are both Christian Nations (despite Liberals best efforts), there is no reason we can't be Allies.

Globalist's worst nightmare is the two Nationalist Leaders (Trump and Putin) becoming Allies; that's why the scum in our Deep State have broken every law in the book in order to keep these two apart.

Talking with Russia is another dagger in the heart of the globalist cabal, let the MSM scream collusion.

What's happening in Italy is another dagger in the heart of the EU elitists, lets hope the scream from their MSM is ignored. Great interview with a Italian politician and the lads at Rogue Money. Updating the moves that the government there are moving forward with.

Trumpster vs Vladiator

Real story here is that Trump is now the Global Rockstar and everybody who is anybody now has to meet with him to shore up their own bona fides.

The actual meeting will probably will be a big story, but non-event, of alpha male bonding except for the exploding liberal media heads.

Sorry trolls, but its true.

Trump has met with all the big significant leaders of the world and the rest are quickly requesting meet ups now that it's clear he's beating down the Deep State coup and is going to emerge even stronger.

News about Trump is sucking up all the oxygen from around the planet and the US economy is driving the global economy again. Office of POTUS is once again leader of the free world.

Only Merkel and the effetes are trying to marginalize him now -- with epic fail.

Months to set up a meeting?   How about months for a pomp & circumstance media show...

One phone call from Putin to Trump, or vice/versa, 'you got some time this weekend?  Sure!  Cool, I'm flyin' over'.  Done.

With the Mueller charade on it's knees, last legs, Trumpelthinskin may have more flexibility after the mid-terms, lol.

Grow a pair Trump, sit down, and learn from the Master. Especially how to disappear Treasonous Bastards.

You’d think they don’t already talk weekly from the thoughts spouted by media.  This will be a grand event.  Let’s hope trade doors open and trade wars close.  Fair trade, let’s get this party started.
