The possibility cannot be ruled out that Russia is recommending the names of people that Trump is appointing in his administration.

The Helsinki summit that took place Monday between the Russian president Vladimir Putin and the American President Donald Trump is over.

Ignoring the suggestions of his party colleagues and opponents, Trump decided to meet Putin who Americans think is the supreme ruler of an enemy nation. Trump and Putin had a 2-hour-long secret meeting before facing the press.

Trump – who allegedly won the presidency in 2016 with Russian interference – preferred to trust Putin’s word that Russia never interfered in the U.S. affairs instead of believing the American intelligence agencies that have concluded that Russia attacked and hacked the elections in 2016.

Now Trump is facing a serious probe being carried out by special counsel Robert Mueller to know the extent of Trump-Russia ties that allegedly helped Trump win the 2016 presidential race.

The Mueller investigation has already entered the White House and he is soon expected to interrogate Trump. Many of Trump’s associates are already in Mueller’s dragnet. In all probability, Trump will soon be indicted although he is trying to stop Mueller’s investigation by hook or by crook.

Putin’s Plans

In an ongoing attempt to reintegrate the broken states of the erstwhile Soviet Union, Putin is taking a number of steps. They include the Eurasian integration process and consolidating the cooperation within the Eurasian Economic Union.

Putin is also systematically trying to weaken NATO – an alliance of 29 nations – which is posing a solid opposition to his plans aimed at expanding or reuniting the Russian territories.

While Putin is working aggressively to bring the separated Soviet states back under a common regime, he also is working to disintegrate the United States. As it appears today, Trump is helping Putin achieve his objectives.

It is a known fact that in order to enjoy an absolute hegemony in the world, the U.S. under its 40th President Ronald Reagan had secretly plotted and executed a stratagem to disintegrate the Soviet Union in order to reduce its dominance.

Putin has often expressed that the disintegration was a painful event that he would like to reverse by uniting the separated Soviet states. He has been doing that by taking various steps. The Russian help to Trump in the 2016 presidential election is believed to be part of Putin’s game plan, as he wanted his own man in the White House.

Putin wants to take a revenge on America which was instrumental in Soviet Union’s dissolution. The presidency of Trump is being seen as a part of Putin’s larger plan to divide the United States.

The U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia had hacked the election data in the 2016 presidential election that helped Trump win. Moreover, Trump and people in his administration have secret ties with Russia and working with Trump to help Russia meet its objectives.

The possibility cannot be ruled out that Russia is recommending the names of people that Trump is appointing in his administration.

In fact, when the U.S. media reported about it, Trump’s National Security Adviser Michael Flynn had to resign for his clandestine ties with top Russian officials.

Flynn had also discussed with Russian officials about the American sanctions on Russia that President Obama had imposed for Russian interference in American elections.

Now, as the truthful American media is reporting aggressively about Trump’s links with Russia and Putin, Trump has stepped up his attack on media and is trying to create an impression that media is telling fake stories.

Trump fears that media will also expose his secret arrangement with Russia that he is working as a Putin’s man in the White House to reduce the American dominance in the world. As Putin has been extremely successful in his move with Trump as a pawn, the process of America’s disintegration has already begun.

For example, the California independence movement had gathered an unprecedented momentum after Trump’s presidency. It planned to hold an independence referendum to establish a mandate, followed by a nationwide campaign to advocate in support of a constitutional exit from the United States.

The leader of the California independence movement Louis J. Marinelli has strong connections with Russia and has lived there for many years.

Plus, all Trump statements against NATO are designed to benefit Putin because NATO forces are trying to stop Russia’s strides aimed to invade the Baltic states: Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania.

Trump has always praised Putin and often stated that he wants to have healthy relations with Russia. Obviously. But he never tells that his reins are in Putin’s hand.

If Trump is really interested to have healthy relations with enemy nations, he should have same approach toward Iran and North Korea. Why is he so kind to only Russia?

While the media is trying to answer such troubling questions, Trump is hell-bent to attack and finally kill the freedom of the press. If he succeeds, it will be another victory for Putin. And that’s what the Russian president wants Trump to do.
