Russia Expert – Trump Putin Formed Courageous Partnership, Will Be Viciously Attacked

Tucker Carlson points out just how badly the press wants the meeting between Presidents Trump and Putin to fail, asking Stephen Cohen, a Russia Studies Professor at NYU and Princeton why that is so. Cohen compares the media political product to pornography.

He notes that there is no love in pornography and similarly there is no American national interest in this bashing of Trump and Putin. He says, “As a historian, let me tell you the headline I would write, ‘Potentially Historic New Detente Anti-Cold War Partnership Begun by Trump and Putin but Meanwhile Attempts to Sabotage it Escalate.'”

Cohen refers to Carlson labeling him as an expert, he says, “I actually do have one expertise, I’ve seen a lot of summits, as we call meetings between American and Russian presidents.” Against a background of having been at Camp David for summit prep for Bush 41’s Malta meeting with Gorbachev Cohen calls the Trump – Putin meeting “potentially the most fateful meeting between and American and Russian President since the wartime.”

Cohen continues, “The reason is that the relationship with Russia is so dangerous and yet we have a President who might have been crippled or cowed by the Russiagate attacks on him. And yet he was not. He was, I think, politically courageous, it went well, they did important things.”

” And this will be astonishing to be said, I know,” notes Cohen, “but I think maybe today we witnessed President Trump emerging as an American statesman.” I think it was a very good day for everybody. Carlson asks how much of the attacks on Russia from the foreign policy establishment, the Democrats, even some Republicans, “How much do they really have to do with Iran and Russia’s alliance with Iran and Syria?”

Cohen replies, “I think a lot,” noting that there are three major actors, Putin, Trump and Assad that are being demonized in America. He says the two leaders spent the bulk of their time attacking terrorism and formed an alliance which means we will side with Russia, at least in the short term, with Assad. That’s not going to go over well in Washington.

Carlson asks why there is so much anger directed at Assad, a question that Professor Cohen doesn’t have an answer for. He speculates that when the Syrian civil war started five or six years ago, everybody was in there arming somebody, that there are a lot of dirty hands, including American.

He points out that “Assad has always been the protector of the Jews, Christians and non-jihadist Islamic population in Syria at a time when the main threat there, the Islamic State, ISIS , chops off the heads of these people. It would seem to me that we should stick with Assad until we defeat these people.”

He calls attention to something the two Presidents following their meeting, “We’re meeting, we have agreed and we promise positive things to come. In other words, they have formed a political partnership and now it goes forward. But it will be viciously attacked, and already is.”

    besides they DON’T RUN THIS NATION THE PRESIDENT DOES, and if he and Putin can work out a plan to KILL OFF ISIS MORE POWER TO THEM.

    The people in this Country who are so against President Trump would rather have a war with Russia to make like the President failed than for the U.S. and Russia to work together peacefully on world affairs. If Assad is protecting Christians and Jews the left doesn’t like that at all because they are against Christians and Jews. That’s why the former administration was so against Assad among other things. You know if the left is against someone it is because they are doing something right. They are among the most corrupt people in this Country. Democrats should change their name because they are anything but democratic. They don’t resemble the same party that was in when John Kennedy was president.

    Stephen Cohen, a Russia Studies Professor at NYU and Princeton is one Wise & Understanding Man!

  4. Really would like to know what Will Rogers would have said about the news media, Russia and Democrats of today.

  5. If Putin and Trump worked out a deal, they will be attacked mainly by the Dems. It will be vicious and cruel but Trump has dealt with this for 1 1/2 years now and knows how to deal with it, somewhat. Putin has a different way of dealing with things like this and don’t think there are no Russian operatives over here. lol

  6. Cohen is the most knowledgeable person I know of when it comes to Russia and Putin. We should listen to him more.

  7. Well, we already know that we can’t trust MSM at all, so let’s pray President Trump and Putin can accomplish something good out of all this. I think POTUS did the right thing.

  8. “…there is no American national interest in this bashing of Trump and Putin.” That says it all. We don’t care about the attacks because we not only consider the fake source of them, but they are also meaningless, disingenuous and self-inflicting. So no, Trump, the nationalist, and Putin, the globalist, will not be drinking vodka together. But it does prove that Trump’s experience in life trumps a politician’s experience in fantasies. We dodged a bullet this election and the democrats and the media just can’t put the bullet back in the chamber.

    • Putin is a nationalist, Marlene, like Xi, which is another reason we should not be reflexively condemning his actions. We have a lot more in common with Russia than we do the Saudis, by a mile, yet they’re our allies and Russia isn’t? That’s upside down, I think Trump is headed on correcting that distorted view- The Soviets were different from the Russians of today, while they’re still far from perfect, they don’t throw folks off of buildings, cut off heads in the public square or sponsor groups that engage in terrorism. The EU and UN globalists support terrorist sympathizers. It’s crazy but in some ways, at least to my way of thinking Russia is more like us than the official European government.

    that’s their END GAME, DON’T LISTEN TO THEM.

  10. I sure hope Trump continues to out fox the neocons.
