ㅤ"The President referred to the summit as a ‘loose meeting’ on Thursday while stating that Putin is ‘not my enemy’ and that the U.S. and Russia are ultimately ‘competitors.’
ㅤ’I think we’ll get along well. But ultimately he’s a competitor. He’s representing Russia. I’m representing the United States. So in a sense we’re competitors, not a question of friend or enemy. He’s not my enemy,’ the President said.
ㅤ’Hopefully some day, maybe he’ll be a friend. It could happen, but I don’t know him very well,’ he added."ㅤ

ㅤô¿ô …It’s probably because the President has a much more effective means of “retaliating” against Russia. Trump’s policies are helping to drive down the price of oil. The policies will also reduce dependence on foreign oil.
ㅤOil production is the lifeblood of Russia. I don’t believe Russia is focused on cyberattacks. Instead Russia funds environmental groups that seek to thwart the President’s goal to export more oil.

ㅤI think the President’s claim is incorrect. The Dems intend to keep the investigation going through the 2018 midterms. The Republicans MUST stop the Dems from doing that.
