His campaign statements and his actions as president appear to suggest that Donald Trump is a Russian surrogate!


trumpputinmeet-620President Donald Trump appears to be a Russian surrogate, a puppet of Russian president Vladimir Putin. Trump’s White House staff is said to include people who have close relations with Russia and the Russian government, and President Trump’s own foreign policy statements seem to align with those of Putin and of the Russian government.

President Trump’s relationship with, and “admiration” for, Vladimir Putin and the Russian government began some 10 years ago:

  1. In a 2007 interview with Larry King on CNN, Donald trump said Putin is “doing a great job in rebuilding the image of Russia and also rebuilding Russia period.”
  2. In his 2011 book “Time to Get Tough” Donald Trump praised Vladimir Putin’s foreign policy by saying “Putin has big plans for Russia” . . . Russia will soon “dominate oil supplies to all of Europe.”doestrumpreallyloveputin-320
  3. In 2013, Donald Trump posted on Twitter his wish that Putin would be his “new best friend” and hoped that Putin would attend his Miss Universe Pageant that was slated to be held in Moscow.
  4. Also in 2013, Donald Trump told Larry King on CNN’s “Larry King Live” that Putin is doing “a great job out-smarting our country (referring to the U. S.).”
  5. Immediately after launching his presidential bid in 2015, Donald Trump said he would “get along very well with Vladimir Putin.”
  6. Also in 2015 (on CBS’ Face the Nation), Donald Trump claimed he has many of Putin’s good traits, saying he and Putin were “stable mates” and “would get along very well.”
  7. Throughout his quest for the GOP presidential nomination, Donald Trump repeated the claim that he and Putin were “stable mates.”
  8. In 2015, Vladimir Putin praised Donald Trump as “a talented person” and “the absolute leader in the (American) presidential race.” To this, Trump replied: “It’s a great honor to be . . . complimented by a man so highly respected within his own country and beyond.”putintrumponhorsebackride-320
  9. Again in 2015, Donald Trump defended Vladimir Putin against reports that Putin ordered the killing of certain journalists, saying: “. . . he’s running his country . . . at least he’s a leader.” And then he added: “. . . our country does plenty of killing also.”
  10. During the campaign in 2016, when questioned about Putin’s excessive praise for him, Donald Trump said he’d be stupid not to accept Putin’s platitudes, adding “I think I’d have a good relationship with Putin.”
  11. In his speeches during the presidential campaign last year, Donald Trump aligned himself with Vladimir Putin’s stance on NATO (‘it’s an obsolete and useless treaty”), the war in Syria (“the US should keep its hands off”), the European Union (“a poor economic alliance”), and American foreign policy in general (“not in the best interest of the American people”), and alleged: “I don’t think he (Putin) has any respect for Clinton (Hillary). I think he respects me. I think it would be great to get along with him.”

Donald Trump desperately tried to win Putin’s attention and recognition. For reasons of his own, Donald Trump eagerly wanted to be Putin’s “friend.” It now appears that Donald Trump is either a puppet or a surrogate – wittingly or unwittingly – of the Russian leader and of the Russian government.

  1. What is wrong with recognizing and even admiring someone for doing a good job? Do you know anything about Russia or the mess it was in when Putin first came into power? He turned his county around, weeded out corruption, and brought prosperity back to his people. Are they the richest country in the world? Maybe not, but at least they have been making progress, and Russian people are happy with his performance. I wish Trump did admire and try to aspire to Putin’s success for America. It would be a refreshing change from the oligarchy’s business as usual.
    But even if Trump admires Putin, that is hardly proof of any election meddling. I wonder if people like you are so quick to cry fowl when US provocateurs attempt to meddle in elections of foreign countries, like when George Soros funds attempted coups in countries like the Ukraine..? Or is your own country entitled to a double standard when it comes to their own crimes?
    And if Trump is Putin’s puppet he has a funny way of showing it when he is being such a good little mouth piece for the military industrial complex. To all outward appearances, Russia doesn’t want war with Iran, North Korea, and they never wanted war with all the middle eastern countries the US has invaded over the last 15 years. CIA backed Isis has been the tool to force Russia into entering the conflict. But Russia stands with Assad, not against, in Syria. Unlike Trump who orders bombings in Syria, based on lies and propaganda.
    You lefties are ridiculous hypocrites! When Bush invaded Afghanistan and Iraq, you were all, rightfully, antiwar. But when Obama continued the trend of invasions, you praised him as the president of peace, when nothing can be further from the truth. You would have done the same for the loathsome Hillary had she been declared president. She is an absolute monster! I’d rather have a wild card like Trump over her any day! Or even better, Putin himself! That man doesn’t just talk about “draining the swamp”, he actually does it. Hey, but don’t take my word for it. Go ask the ruskies.

    • Nice long commentary. All could have been stated in three short sentences and still be out of point. Like using 5600 words to say snakes are interesting creatures without mentioning how bad they could be!

      • Oh, I see how this game is played. Use insults to derail any argument that disagrees with the status quo, rather than dispute the claims. It’s like using hashtags to insist that anyone who isn’t a Democrat must be illegitimate, or that rumours and propaganda are proof of Russian rigging of the US election. You see, I can make absurd analogies, too, only mine are a little more to the point than yours about snakes.
        Was that few enough words for you?

      • Nah – not so. But you’re right about you being on the very ‘right’ side, which isn’t right.

      • Did I say I am on the “right” side? You probably think I’m a Republican, don’t you? Haha! Two sides of the same coin, man. What’s the definition of a fool? “Repeating the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” The American disorder. Just keep choosing your masters from the same coin. All you’re ever going to get is more of the same. Me, I have no use for masters.

      • Haha! I did not think you were Republican since you appear to be literate and sensible. But I do think that you are under some control – like you’re beholden to certain ideas regardless of consequences – ideas espoused by the so-called “right (but wrong).” I know that deep down inside of you there is a desire to be good and to love the human race so much so that you are willing to embrace change and accept new things that will help make life more meaningful. I know that you mean good – it’s just that you’re controlled by ideas that will not lead to anything good.

      • I’m not controlled. Turn off the TV, shut out the mainstream media, disconnect from the propaganda machine. Travel, immerse yourself in new communities and countries. Get to know people from various parts of the world and hear what they have to say. The establishment parties are selling us all out. Globalism will not lead to freedom or anything good,it to a distopian reality. I do not trust Trump, and I detest Hillary. Putin has done some good for Russia, but it isn’t a permanent solution. Government is not benevolent. How did mankind come to believe we need masters? We don’t. We don’t need money, we don’t need capitalism or socialism, or any of the other systems of control. All we need is to come back down to earth, to be part of communities working together. We need to stop giving up our personal sovereignty for the illusion of security. We need to take personal responsibility for defending ourselves against those who would do us harm. There will always be both good and bad in this world, and you cannot change that.
        Country folk who label themselves conservative aren’t all wrong. They get plenty wrong, but not all. Many progressives have good intentions, but like conservatives, they are being led into a trap. But they aren’t all wrong.
        But as long as everyone sits inside their confining little boxes so neatly labeled, refusing to truly listen to what others are saying, then nothing will ever get better. We will remain divided.
        You say I’m controlled, but you’re wrong. In my real life, no one can put a label on me. I mix with so many groups, hear what they all have to say, see both the good and the bad everywhere I go. The trick is to focus on what unites us, rather than what divides us.
        There are some movements, or isms, that I will never embrace, because I see the harm that they do. But only a fool makes enemies of all those they deem to be on the wrong side of the fence. Progressives should stop spewing their hate, open their hearts and minds and get to know the simple folk of rural America. You might be surprised what you’d find.
        I can say this much about rural America: government could disappear today, along with its monetary system and all the rest, and rural America would survive. Life would just go on more or less as it always has.

      • WOW! I had to reset my entire schedule for today so I could have time to carefully read and comprehend your excellent dissertation! I’m stunned! Impressed! You are so gifted – you are smarter than I first thought. I agree with you on many of your points – I disagree on just a few. So I’ll leave it there. I’d love to chat with you again sometime on other matters, on which I might fine tune my thoughts. Right now, I’m concerned about the wildfires that are ravaging most of our area. Let’s keep in touch, Jessica!

      • Well, thank you for the compliment. Yes, I’d like to continue this discussion, or maybe some others. You can follow my blog if you like, though I only post topics that are relevant to the book I’m writing. My book will be controversial enough without getting into politics on my blog. Ha!
        You must be out west if there are a lot of wild fires. I spent four years in Idaho. Every summer, the fires blazed through. Sometimes it would be so bad that the air would be full of smoke for two months straight. Terrible. I hate to think what it’s doing to people’s lungs. My sympathies.

  2. Right on! It won’t be long before President Trump resigns or gets impeached.
