G20 summit is missed opportunity for Trump and Putin

G20 summit is missed opportunity for Trump and Putin?

The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and former U.S. Army Special Operations Officer and global psychological warfare counter-terrorism analyst Scott Bennett take a quick look at US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin's missed opportunity to meet at the G20 Summit in Argentina.

Trump's foreign policy is in desperate need of a full reset, as a neocon old guard in power could be replaced with a more moderate, youthful team, and where rapprochement with Russia can be implemented for the good of both countries, and the international community.



Very interesting to watch. Finally an honest American making one of the best analysis of Trump and the current political situation in USA with good advice for the future.

It’s a missed opportunity because Russia unlawfully detained some Ukrainian sailors and mistreated them. Nothing to see here except why there are sanctions against Russia in the first place.  :coffeeread:

Putin most likely can relate to accusations of offing a journalist. I'm sure Putin prefer the Saudi's over the United States anyway.

Don't shoot the messenger, links to articles posted, don't necessarily reflect my personal opinion.

Pretty awful optics in that little video clip. Not that Putin likely cares.  :coffeeread:

I'm not sure Wiz ( and many others on here )  gets that this was the PERFECT opportunity to show VVP that the latest ( of a long line of ) stunt is unacceptable behaviour ...

I say this  fully aware that shaking the hand of a Saudi Prince who may have personally overseen the project to eliminate a journalist on foreign soil proves double stds are 'OK'
