Maybe Trump is a Hero, Admits America’s Role in Killings

At the end of 2015, the host of MSNBC’s Morning Joe told Trump that Putin “kills journalists,” to which the unfazed then-presidential candidate replied, “I think that our country does plenty of killing, too, Joe.”

These types of statements I feel are encouraging, if Trump can admit the mistakes of regimes past, he may well be able to put America and the world back on the road to peace.

America has done plenty of killing, Presidents Obama and Bush started horrendous wars in the name of Democracy, they created and armed and named the Arab Spring, they sought regime change in other Sovereign nations, millions have died, ISIS was born and 10s of millions were displaced.

Trump is now in charge and it does appear correcting those errors is on his to do list, about time there was some honesty in the White House on these issues.

Trump’s Position on Putin

“I’ve always felt fine about Putin. He’s a strong leader. He’s a powerful leader,” Trump added.

The US is not as innocent as it may seem, according to President Donald Trump. When Fox News host Bill O’Reilly called Vladimir Putin “a killer,” Trump responded: “We’ve got a lot of killers.”

In an interview to be aired ahead of the Super Bowl later on Sunday, Bill O’Reilly asked if Trump respects Russian President Vladimir Putin, to which the he replied, “I do respect him. Well, I respect a lot of people, but that doesn’t mean I’ll get along with them.”

“He is the leader of his country. I say it’s better to get along with Russia than not, and if Russia helps us in the fight against ISIS – which is a major fight – and the Islamic terrorism all over the world, that’s a good thing,”

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov emphasized that the first meeting between Putin and Trump may “happen in months to come,” not “in a matter of weeks.”

Peskov also said, “it is maybe the biggest mistake on the part of Western analysts to think that Trump is ‘our man.’ He is an American man.”
