Quid Pro Quo
What Putin wants from Trump includes:
- removal of the sanctions (this is worth trillions to Putin and Exxon)
- Derailing the Paris climate change accords to extend the value of Putin’s oil.
- support for military action in the Ukraine and Crimea
- derailing NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organisation)
- destabilizing the EU
- help money laundering
- access to all US classified information via secure private back link.
What Trump wants from Putin includes:
- rig the election and future elections
- permits for Trump Moscow building project
- keep blackmail videos secret
Putin held up his end of the bargain. He rigged the US election in favour of Trump. During the campaign Trump promised to remove the sanctions without asking for anything in return. When he got into office, the senate blocked him from making any changes to the sanctions with an almost unanimous vote that he could not veto. Trump countered by refusing the enforce the sanctions. As it stands, Trump owes Putin a favour worth many trillions. That is why Trump kisses Putin’s butt at every opportunity.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
