It's so nice
to see the president of the US and the president of our closest ally see eye to eye:

Russian President Vladimir Putin says his first summit with U.S. President Donald Trump was “successful” and is accusing Trump’s opponents in the U.S. of hampering any progress on the issues they discussed.

Putin told Russian diplomats Thursday that U.S.-Russian relations are “in some ways worse than during the Cold War” but that his meeting with Trump on Monday allowed them to start on “the path to positive change.”

He added, “We will see how things develop further,” expressing concern about unnamed “forces” in the U.S. trying to prevent any improvement in relations, notably cooperation in the Syria war or arms control.


Vladimir Putin is obviously Trump's political mentor. He's not too bright and he's very clumsy but he's on the same page.
