Trump to consider recognizing Russian control of Crimea.
Now the Tramp is going out of his way to piss off everyone big time.
I think he is taking his love for Putin to a high school level.
Putin is much too intelligent to fall for this new love from a demagogue who opens his mouth and everyone around him goes "WFT, did you just say that?'.
However American politics is nothing but drama. For a man who used to date young kids in his beauty pageant things, he should ask why Putin does not date easily (we are still waiting for the first lady).
Let the Tramp portray himself as a very strong man but since when does money one made from buying companies on LBOs, breaking them down, selling them off piece by piece mean you can be an elephant?
I watch Ugandans praising Trump and just laugh because even the GOP is a house divided.
What is it about Putin that makes idiots want to be like him? The man is an intellectual but people with IQs too low want to emulate him without realising that he is much too intelligent for them.
When IOC went for the ban on #Russia being banned at the #Rio2016, I watched him daily to get a statement from him or his team. He said nothing. Beware of silent people and chess players. They are very dangerous. As it is now, Russia is not facing a total ban at the olympics. I bet if he had talked, media would have gone full steam and ensured that the ban did take place. Silence is noble.
Just look at what USA TODAY is running on Trump and Putin. Lamentable but it is slanted reporting.

Russia will not invade
Ukraine if he is elected president, Donald Trump said in an interview broadcast Sunday, adding that he would also consider recognizing Russian President Vladimir Putin's existing seizure of Crimea.
"I'm gonna take a look at it," Trump told ABC's This Week. "But you know, the people of Crimea, from what I've heard, would rather be with Russia than where they were. And you have to look at that, also."
Russia seized Crimea in March 2014, a move that triggered economic sanctions from the United States and European nations. The peninsula had been part of Russia until 1954, when the Soviet Union moved it to Ukraine.
Trump's comments about Crimea followed his claim that Putin and Russia are "not going into Ukraine, okay, just so you understand."
However, that is exactly what happened in 2014 with the seizure of Crimea and some eastern parts of Ukraine. Reminded of that, Trump replied that Putin is "there in a certain way. But I'm not there. You have Obama there."
Trump also repeated he has never met Putin, even though he has said in previous years that he has a "relationship" with the Russian president.
"Well, I don't know what it means by having a relationship," Trump said. "I mean, he was saying very good things about me. But I don't have a relationship with him. I didn't meet him. I haven't spent time with him."
Trump said he has spoken kindly of Putin "because he has said nice things about me over the years," and added that Russia could help the United States in fighting Islamic State terrorism.
Trump also said he had nothing to do with the softening of Republican criticism of Russian activity in Ukraine in the GOP platform approved earlier this month.
Russia is playing an increasingly prominent role in the election between Trump and Democratic candidate
Trump has also raised questions about NATO, saying U.S. partners should pay more for the military alliance designed in part to deter Russian aggression.
In his ABC interview, Trump dismissed those Democratic claims.
"They only fear one thing, losing the election," Trump said. "If our country got along with Russia, that would be a great thing."
