I am so proud of President Trump! He ignored the obvious political move made by the FBI and put them all in their place and the left is just beside themselves! It is so fun to watch! I love that we finally have a real and strong President handle these nincompoops! He just moves forward, bares the truth, and keeps improving our country, the world and our status in the world. The lefties are just annoying little pests with big mouths who yell and bite at him and he just swats them away. Keep up the good work President Trump!

    "I would rather take a political risk in pursuit of peace than to risk peace in pursuit of politics."

    Sounds like a Goldwater speech.
    Trump appeared entirely "presidential" (and I expect that will be entirely ignored by the MSM.)

    I loved that the first question for Trump from a Russian journalist went right to the point on his comments on the Russian Gas pipeline to Germany. On the other hand the first question from Reuters was typical liberal biased political propaganda commentary with no basis in fact. Actually all the western press questions were on these issues; remarkable that the western press had absolutely nothing to say about any substantive issues whatsoever. Embarrassing when the Russian press is more open and rational than that of the MSM press.
    Putin appears to be a canny politician. Very interesting the way Putin avoided answering the question regarding collection of blackmail material on Trump.
    The two of them were wise to have a statement on humanitarian aid helping reduce immigration to Europe and allowed the Russian leader to take credit for it.

    It's unfortunate that those who dislike Trump will not watch this without bias.

    Thanks for posting the link to the press conference, ycandrea.

      I saw the press conference. The MSM was pretty disgusting and boring. I could tell Trump was tired out after 4 hours talking privately with Putin, but I bet a LOT of stuff got discussed very frankly !! The dems would love to know what went on, and I hope they cant get it. The whole idea of a private meeting is to allow the leaders to work together without worrying about political twisting and turning of the press. I hope Trump told Putin what WE want as a country, and Putin did the same for Russia. I also hope that Trump acknowledged the political problems that resulted from whatever interest Russia had in the election (which is no different from USA interests on other countries elections- but we do it more quietly and secretly). I also hope he mentioned to Putin that this visit couldnt be made earlier because of political heat, and even this visit will create more political heat. BUT, we need to talk and not fight over things if at all possible...

    President Trump is, after all, just human. How much more of being treated like the Devil in the flesh can he take before he has been eroded into a George Bush? He has been remarkable so far. But, I wonder if he can keep up this pace with the kind of obstruction he contues to have with the full term of his presidency? He's in his 70's, after all and the human body doesn't get stronger with age. I should know.

    My fundamental belief regarding the governmental structure of the world is that there only three countries that matter the US, Russia and China. Each has the capability to reduce civilization to rubble. Loyalty to government has been fueled in each of these countries in a 1984 manner by feeding the citizens a line that only we are right and the others are wrong and a danger. My belief is that we are historically alike and no different than Greece, Rome, Persia, Arabia, Frankia, Great Britain and every national power in history. It is common that a group gains strength, conquers neighboring territory, absorbs those that assimilate and execute those that don't. The USSR based its power on an unworkable philosophy and disintegrated but the desire for the territory with ports and natural resources remains. Their philosophy is in transition but their advances are inevitable. The question is whether or not there will be a peaceful solution or a devastating war. Until there is no hope for a solution it is wise to have an open dialogue and to engage in trade.
    I sometimes think that Levi Strauss had more to do with the collapse of the USSR than Ronald Reagan. Once their teens got their hands on jeans, Big Macs and rock and roll Communism was dead.
    The quote sometimes attributed to Bastiat that, "If goods do not cross borders, soldiers will" seems very true to me in this regard. Negotiations based on free trade can do more to reduce tensions and bring countries together peacefully more than any threats or debates on territory realignments, human rights or governmental organization. Trade with China has changed their country tremendously and reduced their threat of starting a war. Sure they cheated trying to catch up and that needs to be reined in but tariffs and sanctions will not be nearly as effective as discussion of mutually beneficial trade.
    In the case of both Russia and China we need to talk. If threats are side issues without becoming warlike, so be it. Meddling in our politics is no reason to do anything other than saying If you don't meddle in our internal affairs, we won't meddle in yours and I haven't heard anyone promise that yet. Our "deep state" is just as dirty as anyone else's if not more so. At one point Putin started to take that tract when he said "after all I was once an intelligence agent with the KGB" but he didn't hit us with the hammer like the idiots are demanding that Trump should have done.

      Communism is far from dead in the Russian Federation. All they did was replace the Politburo with an oligarchy run by big oil and the KGB. There is no free market there (but there is a rampant black market) and political opponents are still getting killed or prosecuted to put them out of business. I agree that Western items like jeans and such on the black markets did much, but the bigger move was the military investment spending which channeled valuable resources away from infrastructure development and markets and finally bankrupted the government.

      One other aspect that frequently gets overlooked in the United States (because we are a young nation) is that most other nations have histories and cultures that go back 1000 or more years and include boundary shifts and power shifts between nations. Russia has shifted its borders numerous times - contracting and expanding - with the changing militaries of the times. The Chinese were at one point a threat to take over the world until one emperor decided to abandon invasion plans and go home for nearly a century. And time and technology changed. But amidst the shuffling of borders, the base culture and national identity of many of these nations hasn't changed in centuries. Hitler played upon the national identity of the Germans when he riled them for war just as Stalin did even after the Bolshevik Revolution changed the power structure. Communist China is the very same story - they just traded one emperor for another with a more populist title.

      "In the case of both Russia and China we need to talk."

      Yes, we do. But it has to be action associated with talk as well. Bill Clinton talked a lot to the Chinese and pushed through Most Favored Nation trade status - all the while selling them proprietary wing technology. Obama talked to Iran and ended international sanctions on that nation - right before giving them $400 million and setting them up through a disastrous deal to get nuclear weapons. One thing I will give Trump credit for is that at least his actions are taken with the purpose of "making America great again" even though his eloquence is not what we have become used to from our heads of State.

      In my opinion there is only one deep state comprised of many people from many countries. Their goal is to get rid of freedom and free thinking men because this thwarts their desire for world power. Trump has messed up their plans.

      Well said. I think the tariffs are STUPID and wont work. All that will happen is prices will go up for USA citizens and our government profits from it.

        Government intervention in economics at all is the evil. Everything they do, here and around the world, adds to costs and inefficiencies. A tariff, a subsidy, a minimum wage, actions to make trade between consenting partners "fair", protection of unions, restrictions on market share, and many more common practices to select winners and losers, costs consumers. All of these actions have unintended consequences that require more meddling which keeps the vicious circle going.

          Absolutely This tariff on chinese imports will result in 5% increase in our prices and will result in lower export sales we now have to countries other than china. Stupid in thst we will still buy the same amount frim chins for the products that we still sell.

          Makes me dislike usa workers more for being so uncompetitive and entitlement oriented. We spend time trying to get paid family leave while chinese workers just buckle down and increase their priductivity

    The democrats wanted Trump to lose the opportunity to have a respectful meeting of the minds with Putin by hammering him right out of the gate with the collusion and hacking diatribe put forth by the left.

    Trump didnt do that, fortunately. He had a nice 4 hour meeting of the minds, hopefully laying out what we want, what Putin wants, and how we will avoid accidental wars over mistakes and misunderstandings.
