Remember all the talk about how President Donald Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin were secret friends… and how they’d even schemed to place Trump in the White House?
What a hot pile of garbage that’s turning out to be.
Putin is now learning EXACTLY what he has in Trump – an American leader who can’t be pushed around.
In fact, Trump is about to pull off a move that will put Putin in his place and embarrass the dictator on the world stage.
It’s about time!
Putin drew the ire of the entire world in March when former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were poisoned with a powerful nerve agent in Great Britain.
The poisoning was similar to previous assassination attempts linked to the Russian government – and Russia is considered the only suspect in the attack.
Fortunately, the Skripals both survived – and now Trump is deploying a strategy that will have Putin and his comrades shaking in their fur hats.
As first reported by the Sunday Times, the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, under Trump’s direction, will resettle Sergei and Yulia Skripal in the United States under new identities.
This isn’t just about protecting the Skripals, and there is no intelligence benefit for America. Anything the Skripals knew has long since been picked-over and presumably shared with the CIA.
Instead, Trump is sending Putin a very loud and clear message.
He’s practically DARING Putin to try to kill the Skripals on American soil, and to bring the full wrath of Trump and the U.S. government against Russia.
And the safe bet is that Putin is going to back down… fast.
“The obvious place to resettle them is in America, because they’re less likely to be killed there,” an intelligence official told the Sunday Times.
It’s hard to imagine such a move happening under former President Barack Obama, who treated Putin with kid gloves.
But Putin is learning that America has a new sheriff in town.
Trump isn’t afraid of Putin. And, for once, we have a leader ready to prove it to the world.
