Trump Confronted Putin Over Video Threatening Florida and Shattered Dem Criticism He’s Too Soft on Russia

Ahead of a summit between Russian president Vladimir Putin and President Donald Trump, Democrats like Hillary Clinton suggested that the president wasn’t tough enough on a leader allegedly behind 2016 election meddling.

Although Trump had congratulated Putin on his electoral win and World Cup success, he wasn’t so nice in response to a threatening video from the Russian president.

When Trump saw a Russian propaganda video of nuclear weapons striking Florida, Trump reportedly was angry and told Putin he would lose in an arms race.

“I’ve already increased defense spending, modernized our nuclear weapons…We can do more, so if you want to do an arms race you’ll lose,” Trump said, according to Axios.

Trump reportedly “lashed out” at Putin and called the video “outrageous.”

Ironically, that conversation happened during the same controversial phone call in which Trump congratulated Putin on his electoral win — a move that would enhance Democrats’ speculation that he was too easy on the Russian leader.

The video was likely some kind of power play and, according to former CIA director Michael Hayden, Putin “clearly” wanted the United States to see it.

While Trump prefaced Monday’s summit with a congratulatory message about the World Cup, Putin appeared to attempt yet another power play when he showed up to their meeting an hour late:

Trump and Putin previously met one-on-one at the G20 summit last year, when the president caught criticism for not challenging Putin enough on alleged election meddling.

Trump has apparently tried to selectively reprimand Putin for his country’s actions, offering conciliatory language while imposing harsh sanctions in response to meddling claims.

      Hillary ok’d the sale of 20% of our uranium for a 500k speaking fee for Bubba, Obama told Putin he would be more flexible after the election and he let Putin waltz into the Ukraine. So tell me who is Putins puppet?

      You’re a tool Dean, no evidence has been produced. Why if Mueller wanted justice for this DNC breach and election meddling did he have a press conference to announce indictments, surely now the could never be brought to justice as they couldn’t be lured to the States to be arrested. Think about that and the timing of Mueller annoucement as Trump meets with Putin, maybe you should #Walkaway and not lose any more dignity defending deceptive and divisive Democrats.

      Dean, you are your a pupet yourself. Selling your soul to the devil to troll these sites. I am sure you get paid very well by George Soros’ affiliated company to discredit and say negative things about President Trump. In reality, you are the one who looks foolish! I bet you an illegal alien yourself! It’s obvious your english and understanding of how America works is VERY limited.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a bloog that’s eqully educative and entertaining,
    and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something that too few folks arre speaking
    intelligently about. I am verry happy I found this in my hunt for something
    relating to this. https://www.fiorano.com/opensource/forum/discussion/26889/what-is-scr888?new=1
