National Security Adviser John Bolton has made an announcement that won’t please Americans who disagree with President Trump.
According to Bolton, Russian President Vladimir Putin will visit the White House sometime in 2019.
Here’s the scoop, via AP News:
TBILISI, Georgia (AP) — U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton said Friday that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been invited to visit Washington next year.
Bolton said “we have invited President Putin to Washington after the first of the year for, basically, a full day of consultations.” He said no date has been set yet.
Bolton spoke on a trip to the ex-Soviet nation of Georgia, which fully lost control over its two separatist provinces after losing a brief war with Russia in 2008.
Bolton noted that Putin and U.S. President Donald Trump are set to meet in Paris when they attend Nov. 11 events marking 100 years since Armistice Day.
Trump sent Putin a strong message last week by pulling out of the nuclear deal with Russia.
From Daily Wire:
The Trump Administration announced Sunday that they intend to pull out of a nuclear arms treaty, inked with Russia during the Cold War, and accused Moscow of expanding their base of nuclear weapons in violation of the treaty.
President Donald Trump told members of the press late Saturday that the United States intends to seek a new deal with both Russia and China to put a halt to nuclear armament. China was not part of the original deal, the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), authored in 1987 before China was officially a known nuclear power.
As far as Russian retaliation, Newsmax has the details:
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Sunday that a unilateral U.S. withdrawal would be “very dangerous” and lead to a “military-technical” retaliation.
Gorbachev, now a frail 87-year-old, said it would be a mistake for Washington to quit the treaty, and that it would undermine work he and U.S. counterparts did to end the Cold War Arms race.
“Do they really not understand in Washington what this could lead to?” Interfax news agency quoted Gorbachev as saying.
California Democrat and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi recently compared then-SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh to Putin and Kim Jong-un.
Nancy Pelosi: The only person who doesn’t have to be vetted is the president. And it is pretty clear that he could not withstand a vetting. And he talks about being in love with Kim Jong Un and thinking Kavanaugh is a great guy, upstanding this or that. I guess there’s a similarity that people have with people they respect – Crazy about Putin! In love with Kim Jong Un! Thinks Kavanaugh is a great upstanding person.
