Donald Trump repeatedly made the claim during the election that he was willing to normalize relations with Russia in the interest of keeping Americans safe.
Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin have announced a joint effort to eradicate the threat of ISIS.
Now, not even a week after Americans stood up and said “enough is enough” in regard to cronyism and corruption in Washington D.C., Trump is making good on those promises. It has been revealed that Trump and Vladimir Putin are collaborating on a plan to end ISIS once and for all – something Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton could never have accomplished.
“President-elect Donald Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin have vowed to tackle ISIS together after holding breakthrough talks on the telephone.
“Less than a week after the billionaire’s election, the Kremlin said Putin called Trumpyesterday to begin negotiations over how best to tackle to terrorism.
” The Russian is reported to have said he is ready for dialogue with the US ‘on the basis of mutual respect, non-intervention into each other’s internal affairs’.
“According to the news agency Kremlin, Putin and Trump have agreed to ‘work to channel bilateral relationships into constructive cooperation, to combine efforts to tackle international terrorism and extremism, and to continue contact by telephone and to work towards meeting in person.’”
This quick strike diplomacy has been extraordinarily effective for Donald Trump, as world leaders needn’t concern themselves over the ulterior motives or nuanced double-speak of the usual suspects who make up the Washington elite. With Trump in the driver’s seat, America’s place at the head of the global table will finally be filled.
Putin and Trump Discuss the Future
President Vladimir Putin and the United States’ relationship with Russia were prominent topics of discussion during the general election between President-elect Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Now that the dust has settled, Putin called Trump on Monday to congratulate him on his victory and to discuss how the two countries will move forward.
Trump’s transition team released a statement saying that both parties spoke about “a range of issues including the threats and challenges facing the United States and Russia, strategic economic issues and the historical U.S.-Russia relationship that dates back over 200 years.” Putin also “underlined, in particular, the importance of creating a solid foundation of bilateral ties through the development of their trade and economic components.” In addition, Putin commented that he looks forward to working with the Trump administration to focus on “principles of equality, mutual respect and non-interference in the internal affairs of each other.” Also, he added that there needs to be a return to “pragmatic, mutually beneficial cooperation, which would meet the interests of both countries, stability and security through the world.”
Trump criticized Obama’s relationship with Putin and Russia throughout the campaign season, and he ran a campaign reassuring that he was going to have a stronger relationship with Russia than Obama has had.
