Talked with Putin at G20 without US translator, note-taker

BY BRETT SAMUELS - 01/29/19 02:43 PM EST

President Trump reportedly met late last year with Russian President Vladimir Putin without a translator or aide from his administration present.

The Financial Times reported Tuesday that Trump sat with Putin on the sidelines of the Group of 20 (G-20) summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in late November after an evening event.

Trump was joined by his wife Melania Trump, but there was no note-taker or translator from the U.S. at the meeting. Putin was reportedly accompanied by a translator, with all four at a table.

A Russian government official told the Financial Times that the talk lasted about 15 minutes ...

4. He also works for Putin...this story proves it,,,this is it..

...Talk to anyone at a University in International Affairs, or talk to our own foreign service officers, or talk to the CIA, or the FBI, or past officials of the State Department. They will all say, what the hell went on?

How could our President not take in our people to a talk with Vladimir Putin? Did Dopey Donald Trump so totally trust Putin over our own translators, note-takers?
___________________________________________________________________________________________

This story doesn't look like much. Does It? A few paragraphs from .."The Hill" How could that be important?
..but this one will get around to everywhere. Why? What is the meaning of this? Total and complete trust of Putin over our own people..that is the meaning. Well, if it were a private business meeting for Trump's business, ok..
....But it wasn't...This was a meeting with the Russian leader Vladimir Putin, with the President of the United States, and the President, Donald Trump, had no one to interpret the meeting from the United States..NO ONE, TOTAL RELIANCE ON PUTIN'S INTERPERTER................

NOW, it doesn't look like much,, some paragraphs from ..'The Hill" But the meaning is the biggest story yet about Trump and Putin... Would Obama do this?
......................................Would Clinton do this?
......................................Would Carter do this?
......................................Would have the elder Bush who passed away,,,have done this?
......................................Would Eisenhower have done this?

..................Please think about what this really means.. It is major news.
..................Not yet, but give it time. ............................................................
................. The meaning of this is extremely important to all of us in U.S.A
..................Donald Trump has not answered any questions about this yet.......
...................Neither has anyone in his administration..yet....But they will, sooner or later they will..The
...................Democratic Party controls the House of Representatives. We will ask about this. Our
..................representatives will ask about this. How can this happen, What was said? Why none from
................. U.S.State Department there? or the CIA?...just 4 people?

What is the President of the United States doing talking to Vladimir Putting with no support from anyone with our government. No one who speaks Russian?..Think about it. The meaning will become clear over time. And Dopey Donald Trump will need to answer some questions about this......

3. This is total proof, that Dopey Donald Trump is owned by Vladimir Putin...

....key words: "...no note-taker or translator from the U.S. at the meeting."

Everyone knows what this means...This is it. Dopey Donald Trump is totally controlled by Vladimir Putin.

Please spread this around...to all who doubt the truth: Dopey Donald Trump is totally controlled by Vladimir Putin.

11. It was last November-

Okay, this is just a couple months ago-- at the G20 in Buenos Aires. This was after Trump ostentatiously cancelled their private meeting.

Discussed was... Syria.
It was only a few weeks later that Trump-- without the knowledge of his advisors-- abruptly announced a withdrawal of US troops in Syria, which would have made Putin happy.

17. Rachel was talking about the Rump's meeting last night, and I said the same thing

If this were a Dem, he or she would be in prison right now. It's a mega-sized double standard. Deplorables need to get over their "it pisses off libruls" excuse for such actions.
