JD: I understand there was a sidebar meeting between President Trump and President Putin of Russia. And I understand that it started pretty light hearted with the President kind of shaking his finger at Putin because of the interference in the US elections last year. What is your report on this sidebar meeting?

KT: Well it’s a very important sidebar meeting and certainly the American press and the international press is going to focus on that sort of tut tut moment, hey Vlad hope you don’t interfere, intervene in next years election moment. But that was really made for the media. It’s Donald Trump the media impresario who knows how to lead the media by the nose. He created that moment to divert the media from the real event of that meeting which was the fact that here he is finally sitting down with the President of Russia. He’s been really prohibited from doing this by democrats in Congress and by the media for the past two years in a serious way and having a serious discussion.
