Trump: Could Be Putin’s ‘Worst Nightmare’, Unlike Obama

President Trump had a blunt warning for Vladimir Putin today.

Politico reports:

President Donald Trump said Thursday that he will be Russian President Vladimir Putin’s “worst nightmare” if the pair’s budding relationship falters, unlike former President Barack Obama, who Trump said was a “patsy” for Russia.“I think he knows that,” Trump said. “I’ll be his worst nightmare. But I don’t think it’ll be that way. I actually think we’ll have a good relationship.”

. . .

He pointed to the dozens of Russian diplomats his State Department has expelled and the sanction packages his Treasury Department has imposed, contrasting it with Obama’s infamous 2012 hot mic moment with Russia’s then-president, Dmitry Medvedev, when he said he would have “more flexibility” after that year’s presidential election, his final campaign.

“Look at the sanctions I’ve put on. look at the diplomats I threw out. Look at all of the things that I’ve done. Nobody else did what I’ve done. Obama didn’t do it. Obama was a patsy for Russia. He was a total patsy. Look at the statement he made when he thought the mics were turned off, OK?” Trump said. “Getting along with President Putin, getting along with Russia is a positive, not a negative. Now, with that being said, if that doesn’t work out, I’ll be the worst enemy he’s ever had. The worst he’s ever had.”

The president spent political capital in an effort to improve relations with Moscow, which have deteriorated over previous administrations. The president’s utmost desire is to have a productive, peaceful relationship with the world’s other leading nuclear power. On the other hand, the president will not hesitate to impose further sanctions on the Russians, or do what is necessary to protect Americans from Russian aggression, contrary to what the media has reported this week.

The fake news media has trashed Trump for offering to get along with Putin in a civil manner. He did not kiss Putin’s ass like Obama did, and did not under his watch allow some dumb witch to sell 20% of our uranium for pennies on the dollar.

Knowing Trump from past TV programs, I believe him when he said he would be Putin’s “worst enemy he ever had.” Trump is no patsy nor is he as naive as he puts on at times. I still have his back and he still has mine. I would want him in my bunker any time. MAGA President Trump.

I agree with President Trump about this. The idiots who are saying he caved in at the summit are nuts. Have they never heard, “Keep you friends close, and keep you enemies even closer”.??!!!! You can’t know what your enemies are up to, if you never speak to them. I don’t think OUR President is a chicken, or easily led by ANYONE. That’s my opinion, form your own.

I STAND WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP 100%. HE LOVES THIS COUNTRY AND IT’S PEOPLE.AND HE’S RIGHT ABOUT BEING FRIENDS WITH PUTIN, EVEN THOUGH WE ALL KNOW PUTIN CAN’T BE TRUSTED. YOU KEEP YOU FRIENDS CLOSE AND YOU ENAMEYS EVEN CLOSER. TRUMP KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING.

The fake media are really doing themselves a dis service. If they would just report some of the news fairly, they would have a fighting chance. I just can’t believe; or they think the general public is so stupid, to believe every single moment of the day is about how President Trump is supposedly ruining this country and that he is not for America First. I tried to watch some of the main-stream news channels to give them another chance. Couldn’t stomach it. Not one, when I say one, positive thing, that not even him, but his administration has not and cannot do anything right for this country. They are all so absurd or stupid themselves spewing their favorite words of the day. I hope they keep doing it, because I have to believe the legal American patriots( born or not born) in this country are just as smart or hopefully smarter to vote Republican just to get the peoples’ agenda thru….

The Congress has been a patsy just like Obama, whatever the cost to America was/is, is ok, as long as the gravy train keeps rolling, and those who swore an oath to defend the Constitution,keep getting theirs. Draining the swamp is producing more than was, perhaps, expected.

Media? What media? Are they talking about that bunch of clowns that call themselves, laughingly, journalists? What a sad joke they are. Get real. They are a bunch of pussies.

I see no reason to deny a visit from President Putin. The only reason coming from these politicians is undoubtedly ALL the media will want to interview Putin. And these politicians are afraid of what he may divulge. Some of them have been there for a loooong time. And President Putin may have some delicious tidbits to share.

Getting along with Putin is a Plus for President Trump & America, but is dreaded by The DEMS & Never Trump RINOS. The DEMS had great relations with the Soviet Union under Communism, but were miffed, when Putin was not as receptive to the DEM MOB. Putin also divulged that he is a Christian & that is a killer for DEMS.
I wish only the best for President Trump in his attempt to develop Better Relations with President Putin. Two Great Competitors!

I love President Trump, but sometimes he gives too much information to the press like what he just said. “If US-Russia relations don’t work out, I’ll be Putin’s worst enemy or Nightmare!” That could through a wrench in the peace process.

It is probably muscle flexing. Putin would only respect strength and we’ve got it and Trump knows it so he is giving a warning to Putin.

President Trump talking to Putin is no different than him talking to hillary or Barry with the rug burn knees. He knows he’s a despicable person, but he’s the leader of a powerful country that either you find something to work with or try not to go to war with. Depends on how you look at it. As far as the socialist media, if the democommies keep pushing our country into a civil war, they will be some of the first dealt with I’m sure. Cause they are pushing for it, he’ll their lucky some but job doesn’t get pushed to far, like the one that tried to kill GOP senators? IMO

Trump and Putin both operate as powerful men so of course they will bump heads. However that dos not mean they need to be enemies. Obutthead was wuss and a pushover. He proved that with his apology tour to the Arab countries. He perceived himself as a great healer when in reality all he did was hand over the keys to the palace to his muslim buddies especially Iran. I believe China to be a far more dangerous country with regard to the US. Building an island in the South China Sea for the sole purpose of becoming a base for their massive aircraft carries shows just how they feel now that the US and Wal-Mart has made them enormously rich.

‘the Island’ in S. C. Sea, is Indeed Worriesome. Too late, Already there. But, How much
‘developement’ has taken place. ??? ( i have not done DD re this) . Anyway, IF the ‘war-mongers’
of USA need to ‘bomb -out’ something, Would not that location suffice ??? Would be X-treme
now. ‘Barry hussein Should’ve Controlled this developement UNDER His Watch. He did not__
