Russian state TV warns Trump to 'do what we say' if you want 'support in the elections'

Source: Raw Story

One of Russia’s state-run TV news programs this week expressed displeasure with newly announced sanctions being leveled against the Kremlin — and one guest said that it was time to put direct pressure on President Donald Trump to get his administration to back off.

Julia Davis, who runs the Russian Media Monitor website, reports via Twitter that news show “60 Minutes” this week held a panel discussion about actions Russia should take to retaliate against the latest round of American sanctions.

Vitaly Tretyakov, the dean of the Moscow State University’s School of Television, argued that the Russian government should use whatever leverage it had over Trump to bend the president to its will.

“Let’s turn this into a headache for Trump,” he said, according to Davis’ translation. “If you want us to support you in the elections, do what we say.”

5. Welcome to DU, Biden My Time!

No kidding! I never thought I'd see the day when the Russians figured into ANYTHING in domestic politics - other than the constant reference to Commies. They were NEVER held up as models of "honesty".

8. Are you now, or have you ever been, seafood?

 

Or are you a gal named Mary in California? Be careful how you answer: I'm told Zuckerberg's thugs are monitoring DU tonight.

PS, thanks for the welcome!

6. Trump is doing it as fast as he can.

Trump's crushing tariffs on Turkish metal are destabilizing the country's currency.

Putin wants nothing more than to peel Turkey away from NATO, so he can continue rebuilding the Russian empire.

7. Odd that he didn't say "again."

That would've made this considerably more interesting.

Too bad we can't just mute Russia. Do a stealth block on them.
