What do you think? Is the portrayal of the Trump-Putin relationship as a gay love affair an expression of homophobia? What if Putin had been replaced by a woman leader like Merkel? Would a heterosexual portrayal have been equally proper/offensive? #HelsinkiSummit2018 twitter.com/nytopinion/sta…
In this episode of Trump Bites, Donald Trump’s not-so-secret admiration for Vladimir Putin plays out in a teenager’s bedroom, where the fantasies of this forbidden romance come to life. https://t.co/cWeQMuzWUz pic.twitter.com/4shBRkloot— NYT Opinion (@nytopinion) July 16, 2018
Our president had the chance to confront an adversary who continues to attack our democracy & our allies. He didn’t. Instead he offered distractions, moral equivalence, & appeasement. This shameful performance doesn't represent the US or what we stand for: https://t.co/tsc0lOV8b8— Joe Biden (@JoeBiden) July 16, 2018
President Trump must clarify his statements in Helsinki on our intelligence system and Putin. It is the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected—-immediately.— Newt Gingrich (@newtgingrich) July 16, 2018
#Trump really has to dig himself out of another self-made #ManchurianCandidate hole. Opportunity for foreign policy realignment on #Syria wasted, as #US reverts to standard routine of partisan naval-gazing. Well played #Vladimir. #Helsinki2018 twitter.com/realDonaldTrum…
Che poi quell’however peggiora phre le cose: crede nel russiagate ma preferisce fingere di no? twitter.com/realdonaldtrum…
As I said today and many times before, “I have GREAT confidence in MY intelligence people.” However, I also recognize that in order to build a brighter future, we cannot exclusively focus on the past – as the world’s two largest nuclear powers, we must get along! #HELSINKI2018— Donald J.
