Trump Says He’s Not Hiding Putin Face-to-Face Chat Details

President Donald Trump said he ‘couldn’t care less’ if details from his conversation with Russian leader Vladimir Putin were released.

Trump was responding to a Washington Post report, which said he went to great lengths to hide details of his discussions with Putin. Trump took possession of his interpreter’s notes after a 2017 meeting in Hamburg and instructed the linguist not to discuss the matter with other administration officials, the Post said, citing current and former U.S. officials.

‘We were talking about Israel and securing Israel and lots of others things,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News on Saturday. ‘It was a great conversation. I’m not keeping anything under wraps.’

Representative Eliot L. Engel, chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, said it will hold hearings on the “mysteries swirling” around Trump’s relationship with the Russian president.

“Every time Trump meets with Putin, the country is told nothing,” Engel said in a statement. “The Foreign Affairs Committee will seek to get to the bottom of it.”

U.S. officials only learned of Trump’s actions when two aides sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout from then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the Post said. The officials said there is no detailed record, including in classified files, of Trump’s face-to-face interactions with Putin at five locations from the past two years, the newspaper reported.

‘I mean it’s so ridiculous, these people make it up,’ Trump said on Fox News, adding that he’s been tougher on Russia than the last three or four presidents.

A White House spokesman contacted by the Washington Post who spoke on the condition of anonymity said the administration has sought to “improve the relationship with Russia.”

  1. Listen up democrats. If you don’t stop this witch hunt on Trump, I will personally become a political activist and post everything that I have ever heard that is rotten about the democrats, and there is plenty. Ever hear about that woman who wrote a book about the Clintons and their baby raping friend? Get off this horse, now. You are wasting our money when it is needed elsewhere. So the leader of our country discussed world shattering subjects with an allies, the enemy doesn’t need to know what was discussed. We weren’t born yesterday. We know you are witch hunting. Quit wasting our tax dollars, NOW. If you want to participate in their drug dealings and child molesting then fly down there at your own expense, not ours. Shape up our we will ship you out in 2020,WE THE PEOPLE are tire of this bull.

    1. As a Trump supporter, I agree with you 99% but have to wonder why President Trump, who is a newcomer to world diplomacy, insists on meeting with Putin privately with no record. This is not the norm for US diplomacy and why is he acting differently? Private meetings, no joint press releases, no briefings and no communications with DoD, State or others. Yes, I’m concerned if for no other reason than he is dealing with a KGB thug. So, either President Trump becomes more transparent or my confidence shrinks.
