US President Trump said Friday that he’s looking to meet sometime this Summer with Russian President Vladimir Putin, and that the U.S. should move beyond its objections to Moscow’s annexation of Crimea in 2014 because then-President Barack Hussein Obama failed to stop it.
“It’s possible that we’ll meet, yeah,” President Trump told reporters at the White House.
Noting that he has proposed for the G7 nations to readmit Russia, which was kicked out of the coalition over the illegal taking of Crimea from Ukraine, President Trump said, “I think it’s better to have Russia in, than to have Russia out.”
“President Obama lost Crimea long before I got here,” President Trump said. “It’s his fault. President Obama lost Crimea, because President Putin didn’t respect President Obama, didn’t respect our country. President Obama, not Trump. When it’s my fault, I’ll tell you.”
He said the episode was just part of Mr. Hussein Obama losing international respect during his Presidency.
President Trump raised Mr. Hussein Obama’s infamous “Red Line” in Syria, when he vowed to attack Syria if it used chemical weapons in its civil war, but then backed off the threat when Syria did use chemical weapons.
Mr. Hussein Obama’s promises made as US President turned out to be promises broken.
President Trump is a businessman, Russia back in the G7 to be G8 is good business
