Default U.S. & Russia reach agreement on Syria Ceasefire

Well Trump set NATO Nations fears aside in his first speech which was scripted. Saying Russia has to stop upsetting NATO Allies. And to stop the aggression in Ukraine.
Then later at a press call he went off on his own when asked about the meddling by Russia in the 2016 election... More or less saying the reverse from earlier..

U.S. and Russia announce Syria ceasefire to start on Sunday

HAMBURG, Germany — The United States and Russia have reached agreement on a cease-fire in southwest Syria, three U.S. officials said Friday as President Donald Trump held his first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The deal marks a new level of involvement for the U.S. in trying to resolve Syria's civil war. Although details about the agreement and how it will be implemented weren't immediately available, the cease-fire is set to take effect Sunday at noon Damascus time, said the officials, who weren't authorized to discuss the cease-fire publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Jordan and Israel also are part of the agreement, one of the officials said. The two U.S. allies both share a border with the southern part of Syria and have been concerned about violence from Syria's civil war spilling over the border.
The deal is separate from "de-escalation zones" that were to be created under a deal brokered by Russia, Turkey and Iran earlier this year. The U.S. was not a part of that deal. Follow-up talks this week in Kazakhstan to finalize a cease-fire in those zones failed to reach agreement.

The U.S. and Russia have been backing opposing sides in Syria's war, with Moscow supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad and Washington supporting rebels who have been fighting Assad. Both the U.S. and Russia oppose the Islamic State group in Syria.

The U.S. has been wary of letting Iran gain influence in Syria — a concern shared by Israel and Jordan, neither of which wants Iranian-aligned troops amassing near their territories. A U.S.-brokered deal could help the Trump administration retain more of a say over who fills the power vacuum left behind as the Islamic State is routed from additional territory in Syria.

Though U.S. and Russian officials had been discussing a potential deal for some time, it didn't reach fruition until the run-up to Trump's meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the Group of 20 economic summit in Germany, officials said.

What he has done besides what you suggest is made America a and has made us not so fine in our NATO And G-20 Allies eyes.

Plus might have started a trade war. Which will cost jobs.. And he is big on jobs. He can't think far enough ahead it appears. And who could with an EGO like his.

US, Russia announce Syria cease-fire after Trump-Putin talks

HAMBURG, Germany — The United States and Russia struck an agreement Friday on a cease-fire in southwest Syria, crowning President Donald Trump’s first meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. It is the first U.S.-Russian effort under Trump’s presidency to stem Syria’s six-year civil war.

The cease-fire goes into effect Sunday at noon Damascus time, according to U.S. officials and the Jordanian government, which is also involved in the deal.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who accompanied Trump in his meeting with Putin, said the understanding is designed to reduce violence in an area of Syria near Jordan’s border that is critical to the U.S. ally’s security.

It’s a “very complicated part of the Syrian battlefield,” Tillerson told reporters after the U.S. and Russian leaders met for more than 2 hours on the sidelines of a global summit in Hamburg, Germany.

Of the agreement, he said, “I think this is our first indication of the U.S. and Russia being able to work together in Syria.”

For years, the former Cold War foes have been backing opposing sides in Syria’s war. Moscow has staunchly backed Syrian President Bashar Assad, supporting Syrian forces militarily since 2015. Washington has backed rebels fighting Assad. Both the U.S. and Russia oppose Islamic State militants and say they’re focused on rooting out the extremist group.

The potential pitfalls for the cease-fire are clear — not least the challenge of enforcing it.

This is going back on the Merry go round and just another reason our Allies NATO & G-20 have concerns.. The assurances were Putin's saying Russia didn't interfere.

HAMBURG — Russian President Vladi*mir Putin on Saturday said that he assured President Trump that Moscow had not interfered in the 2016 presidential election, and that it appeared to him that Trump had agreed with his assurances.

“It seemed to me that he took it into account, and agreed” Putin told reporters on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg. The Russian president added “you should ask him.

Russia’s foreign minister’s on Friday had said that Trump had “accepted” Putin’s assurances that Moscow did not run a hacking and disinformation campaign to help Trump’s campaign.

Just exactly what reaction did you expect from Putin? Please. Even if the Russian did meddle as the 17, no wait 10, no wait 5, no wait 3 intelligence agencies concluded based on super secret evidence and a report from a security company hired by Democrats, why would Putin do anything to dispell the rabid hate campaign against Trump.

Instead of launching into a profanity laced tirade like DNC chair Tom Perez, Trump asked the obligatory questions of Putin then moved on to more productive topics such as cementing an agreement for a cease fire in Syria.

I am still not quite sure why the Trumpsters wont take the word of 3 American intelligence agencies. You do realize even if it is only 3 intelligence agencies...nevermind, I guess rational thought has left the country.
