1Trump used French dressing placed inside an empy bottle of Russian dressing

2When Trump met Putin, both of them were naked under their clothes

3Trump and Rootin' Tootin' Putin traded nuclear remote control buttons. Hey, don't look at me. Putin likes to be called silly names

#1... Most likely to allow Putin to see we have geared up to battle using internet... And or other hints which we might not be aware of.

#2... Hey Putin does what he wants to do..

#3... Care to do the research; https://www.bing.com/search?q=Trump+...0e107a&PC=LCTS

He might be right on this.. Yet to play with it's value isn't some thing I would play with..

By talking down the dollar, Trump is playing a dangerous game. ... the Currency Devaluation game as the U.S. keeps raising interest rates. ... Here, too, Trump told CNBC that he was “not thrilled” by the Fed's decision to increase rates. .... and the currency may see another wave of selling pressures ahead.
#1- why wouldn't he consult with or at least inform his own natl security adviser that a foreign enemy, who has not stopped attacking our democracy since 2016, is going to 'visit?"
i mean they will probably want to do security measures before hand to make sure the Kremlin doesn't plant a bug or otherwise gain more top secret or private information on the united states

Just wondering, have you ever said to someone you've spoken with - we need to get together soon?

this particular use of 'soon' needs definition, please. Exactly when did Trump indicate 'soon' was, according to your sources? Or is that 'soon' about as definite as what I exampled above?

I was watching the interview with Dan Coats when he was informed that Putin was being invited to the White House this fall. As the video shows he was taken by complete surprise.

This has been an ongoing problem with Donald Trump because he does reckless things without any consultation with anyone. When he walked out of the private meeting with Kim Jong Un and announced that the US was going to not participate in military exercises with South Korea no one knew about this in advance (with one possible exception because Vladimir Putin had suggested it to Donald Trump).

That's why his "private meetings" are so scary. He'll literally throw the United States under the bus on an impulse. He goes into them unprepared and god only knows what will happen.

Trump apparently made agreements with Putin in their private two hour plus meeting and Russia has announced it's going ahead with those agreements including one on Syria, No one in the US government has any clue about what these agreements are. WTF did Trump agree to with Putin, the foremost enemy of the United States today, remains one giant question mark.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

President Trump suspended large scale military operations in Korea as long as the North Koreans continue to negotiate in good faith. Critics want to dictate Trump's negotiations then lambaste the President for failing.

I think you need to broaden your information sources.

Please tell me what's bad about world leaders talking to world leaders?

Especially if the other world leader is gearing up for nuclear testing.
