BTRTN: What Does Putin Have on Trump? Duh!

Born to Run the Numbers speculates on the substance of Trump's one-on-one with Putin in Helsinki:

http://www.borntorunthenumbers.com/2018/07/btrtn-what-does-putin-have-on-trump-duh.html

Excerpts: "What do you suppose they are going to talk about on Monday? One guess is that they Vladimir Putin will want to talk about is how to make sure Donald Trump gets re-elected. Why rent the President of the United States for four years when you can leverage that into an option to buy?

"Putinís a shrewd guy. If he wants to make sure that Trump gets re-elected, the first sign would be to see if he throws Trump a bone in Helsinki. Maybe Putin suggests that they announce some grand agreement to do something about the endless mess in Syria. Maybe Putin offers to join Trump in shutting down Kim Jong-un. It could be a Munich-evoking assurance that Putin will initiate no other Crimea-like annexations in former U.S.S.R. states like Estonia. Perhaps itís a vague communique promising a dialog on reducing nuclear arsenals. All Putin has to do is make sure that Donald Trump comes out of Helsinki with a win that he can crow about back home and which serves to validate Trumpís emphasis on establishing a positive working relationship with Putin. Donald Trump has a nauseating habit of walking away from every shit storm he creates with a resounding declaration of victory. In the case of this meeting, Putin would seem to have self-interest in helping Trump do so."

2. Did you include the site for the new Trump Tower Moscow?

I think that will be on the agenda.

5. Good point!

Thanks for commenting. It is outrageous that the American people will have to rely on a pathological liar and a brutal tyrant to find out what was actually discussed in this meeting.

6. From the very beginning, Trump has been shutting out the American media...

in his Russia meetings. The fact we have to get our news of those events from TASS, and RT is flat out disgusting.

4. Dirty Donny* will proclaim a GLORIOUS triumph, no doubt

just as he did with the infamous republican #ShankgaiSurrender #FakeTriumph (R)

But make no mistake: the #HelsinkiStinky will - whether occulted or not - be yet another republican SURRENDER of USA security and influence.

Deplorable. Foul. Treasonous. More republican lies soon to spew. Depend on it.

* aka republican Draft-Dodger-in-Chief

7. Why are people still wondering what Putin has on Trump?

Trump's refusal to support his own intelligence community is further evidence of the point this article makes...
