Donald Trump And Vladimir Putin Have First Official Conversation; Discuss Plans To Destroy ISIS!
The Talk Heard Around The World
President Trump and Vladimir Putin had their first official conversation on the phone on Saturday according to an article published by the Washington Post.
Despite the American mainstream media trying to portray Vladimir Putin as having interfered in the U.S. election, President Trump said he hopes to cultivate “a great relationship” with Vladimir Putin. That comment is likely to draw harsh criticisms from news organizations like CNN that will most likely use that comment to insinuate the relationship between the two world leaders played a hand in President Trump winning the White House in November.
One of the highlights from the conversation was their discussion on how to defeat ISIS.
From The Washington Post:
President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin had their first official phone conversation Saturday, agreeing to partner in the fight against terrorism and the Arab-Israeli conflict and to forge stronger economic and political ties between their two countries, the Kremlin said…
…“The current international issues were thoroughly discussed, including the fight against terrorism, the situation in the Middle East, the Arab-Israeli conflict, the sphere of strategic stability and non-proliferation, the situation around the Iranian nuclear program and the Korean Peninsula,” the Kremlin said in a statement.
Shortly after the call the White House also released a press statement which highlighted the fact that the call was an important step to improving the relationship between the two nations.
From The LA Times:
In its own statement after the one-hour phone call, the White House said, “The positive call was a significant start to improving the relationship between the United States and Russia that is in need of repair. Both President Trump and President Putin are hopeful that after today’s call the two sides can move quickly to tackle terrorism and other important issues of mutual concern.”
