I knew it!

Russian President Vladimir Putin said he and US President Donald Trump “regularly talk over the phone” and that the pair work well together in the fight against international terrorism, but suggested a formal summit between the two was not imminent despite mounting speculation.
Speaking to Austrian television channel ORF ahead of a visit to Vienna on Tuesday, Putin said he “fully agreed” with Trump on the possibility that a new arms race between the countries could break out, and hoped the two leaders could work together to prevent it.
Putin said that in a recent phone call, “Donald said he was worried about the possibility of a new arms race.”
“I fully agree with him — however, to prevent a possible arms [race], we should think about it, we should do something about it, give corresponding instructions to our Foreign Ministry and the US State Department,” Putin added.
There is about as much chance of Trump engaging in an arms race with Putin as there is of Samwise Gamgee telling Frodo to go fuck himself.
To be clear here Trump is the goofy sidekick while Putin is the leading man, Trump does what the hell he is told to do, and when that changes suddenly the media will be flooded with kompromat that will end his presidency overnight.
I have absolutely NO doubt about that.
This is all for show and is really only effective with the slack-jawed knuckle draggers who voted for Trump in the first place.
Of COURSE, Donald Trump speaks to Vladimir Putin on the phone all of the time, how else would he know what his positions were on any of the issues?
