Does this POS not realize that he works for us?

President Trump said Wednesday that he’ll have “a very good conversation” with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit but declined to say whether he plans to warn him against interfering in U.S. elections.
Trump was asked as he departed the White House for the summit in Japan whether he will confront Putin about election interference.
“I will have a very good conversation with him. What I say to him is none of your business,” Trump said.
Asked over the weekend on NBC’s “Meet the Press” whether he would directly confront Putin on the issue of election interference, Trump said, “I may.”
Trump is never going to confront Putin about election interference because he is afraid that Putin may refuse to do it on his behalf next time.
As for his discussions with Putin, that reporter has every right to ask the question and Trump owes it to the American people to fucking answer it.
On a similar note, the largest online presence for Trump supporters is now under quarantine.

The biggest forum for supporters of President Trump on Reddit has been “quarantined” following months of incitements to violence and other offensive behavior, the tech giant said Wednesday, in a move that could further inflame conservatives’ claims of social-media bias.
The forum, called “r/The_Donald,” has long served as a highly trafficked and controversial gathering place for supporters of Trump and Republicans on Reddit, the United States’ fifth-most popular website.
The move comes amid persistent allegations from Republicans that leading technology platforms, most of which are headquartered in the liberal bastion of northern California, are unfairly squelching conservative voices online. This partisan battle also is playing out amid a broader debate over whether private technology companies should be mediating free speech and whether widely accepted standards — such as prohibitions against incitements to violence — are being consistently and transparently applied.
Created in 2015, “The_Donald” counts roughly 750,000 followers and advertises itself as “a never-ending rally dedicated to the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.”
Reddit officials said on Wednesday that the “r/The_Donald” board had allowed or encouraged months of “rule-breaking behavior,” including the “encouragement of violence towards police officers and public officials in Oregon.”
I once visited r/The_Donald out of curiosity and just let me say that if you want to understand just how deranged the typical Trump supporter is, that place will bring up to speed very quickly.
So to sum up, Trump thinks that we have no right to know the sweet nothings that he whispers in Papa Putin’s ear, and his online followers are so toxic that they cannot even be tolerated on Reddit.
