Should Vladimir Putin be allowed to visit the White House?
Benjamin Hart called the invitation the latest example of Trump’s "strange, unquestioning respect for Putin."
A sit-down would likely come against the backdrop not only of deteriorating relations between the two countries (despite Trump’s Putin fanboy routine), but Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s continuing investigation into Russian electoral interference in the 2016 election, which Trump has consistently downplayed.
The fact that we found out about the invitation from the Kremlin, rather than our own government, was disturbing to many. What other plans has Trump made with the Russian president that we haven't heard about yet?
The Kremlin just announced a White House visit was just offered to Putin from President Trump.
Once again the Kremlin has announced this before the President has. That's because Trump knows Americans are against this.
.@realDonaldTrump-You shouldn’t let Putin, who has committed acts of war against the US, is actively hacking into our infrastructure at this very moment & plans to interfere again in our election—into the White House. I think that’s fair. You’re a traitor for thinking about it.
Opponents say Trump is a Russian asset, and that this invitation is just one more example of how our president has been co-opted by the Kremlin. A Putin visit will be greeted with massive protests across the country.
The president's supporters agree with Trump that a better relationship with Russia benefits all of us, and that treating Putin as an enemy is shortsighted and unnecessary.
I’m baffled by people that seem to want Trump to refuse to speak with Putin. Do you want war with the world’s largest nuclear arsenals? Nuclear war is the greatest threat to humanity. We need to get along with Russia.
Trump himself argues that a positive relationship with Putin is a good thing, and could help the West fight terrorism.
I called President Putin of Russia to congratulate him on his election victory (in past, Obama called him also). The Fake News Media is crazed because they wanted me to excoriate him. They are wrong! Getting along with Russia (and others) is a good thing, not a bad thing.......
