They are both lying. Lavrov asked how he could be of help. Trump gave him a wish list.

2. We all know what a tough negotiator DFT is...

He can only fire someone on camera. They are not even in the same room as him when it happens. He is a passive aggressive negotiator. Not a real one.

5. Believing Lavrov, Pompeo or Trump is like running a red light next to a cop on a motorcycle

No one will stop you initially, but it's still not wise to do.

6. Maybe the dispute is because of the year. I can believe they didn't discuss 2016. More likely they

were planning the Russian election hacking in 2020.

7. It's pretty sad when you cant trust your own government to tell the truth.

Neither of them have any credibility so you assume both of them are lying.

8. You know it's really bad when...

A corrupt Russian ambassador is more believable than the president or his yes man pretending to be a Secretary of State. That's why no press from America was allowed to hear anything said between them. They could claim anything they wanted , and deny , deny, deny anything else.

9. Ye olde credibility gap

Lavrov can say whatever he wants because Trump et al are known to lie about everything. I'd bet Pompeo issued this statement because the WH thinks he's the most credible liar they have.
