Pompeo: 'Ludicrous' to suggest Trump canceled Putin meeting over Cohen news

Bwahahahahahahhaaa

Pompous Ass says what????



Buenos Aires (CNN)US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo asserted that Russian aggression against Ukraine in the Kerch Strait near Crimea was the sole reason for President Donald Trump's cancellation of his G20 meeting with Russia President Vladimir Putin, calling suggestions that it was influenced by developments in the special counsel's probe "ludicrous."

In an exclusive interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer on the sidelines of the global summit, Pompeo said Trump scrapped the anticipated meeting "because the Russians behaved in a way that is deeply inconsistent with international law."

"The President wanted to send a clear, unambiguous message that we find that type of behavior unacceptable, so we canceled the meeting," Pompeo said.

In a maritime clash last weekend, Russian boats seized three Ukrainian ships near Crimea and detained 24 sailors. A court in Russian-controlled Crimea ordered that 12 of those soldiers be detained for two months. Russia's escalation has been met with international condemnation.

Trump had 'informal' conversation with Putin at G20 meeting

BUENOS AIRES – After avoiding Vladimir Putin for most of the day at the G-20 summit of global leaders, President Donald Trump had an "informal" conversation with the Russian president, the White House said Saturday.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the two spoke at a cultural dinner last night scheduled in Buenos Aires for the leaders and their wives. The dinner, which took place in the city's famous Teatro Colón theater, was closed to reporters.

“As is typical at multilateral events, President Trump and the first lady had a number of informal conversations with world leaders at the dinner last night, including President Putin," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

Sanders did not provide additional detail about the extent of the meeting, or what was discussed. Trump drew fire for a similar encounter over dinner at the G-20 summit in Hamburg last year when the White House disclosed days later that the two presidents met without any U.S. aides present.

Nobody believes the cancelation was about the Ukraine.
