President Trump Has Invited Putin to the White House—Discussions Are Under Way

July 19, 2018 (EIRNS)—White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted this afternoon that President Trump has invited President Putin to the White House this fall.

“In Helsinki, @POTUS agreed to ongoing working-level dialogue between the two security council staffs. President Trump asked @Ambjohnbolton to invite President Putin to Washington in the fall and those discussions are already underway,”

referring to the President of the United States and National Security Advisor John Bolton.

In a morning tweet, President Trump had said,

“The Summit with Russia was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media. I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed, including stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear proliferation, cyber attacks, trade, Ukraine, Middle East peace, North Korea and more. There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems—but they can ALL be solved!”

Later, he tweeted “The media is going Crazy!

“The Fake News Media wants so badly to see a major confrontation with Russia, even a confrontation that could lead to war. They are pushing so recklessly hard and hate the fact that I’ll probably have a good relationship with Putin. We are doing MUCH better than any other country!

“They make up stories without any backup, sources or proof. Many of the stories written about me, and the good people surrounding me, are total fiction. Problem is, when you complain you just give them more publicity. But I’ll complain anyway!”

In any case, the fake news hysteria against the Helsinki summit in no way represents the view of the American people. The latest Axios/SurveyMonkey poll released today shows that 79% of Republicans approved what President Trump said in his press conference with President Putin. Only 18% disapproved.
