Liberal conspiracy theories are floating around about Donald Trump and Russia, but the fact is there is no evidence whatsoever to prove their claims. However, since Russia is such a hot topic, let’s take a walk down memory lane back to 2012 for a second with Obama.
On Monday while President Obama was taking part in a global nuclear security summit in South Korea, he was caught on tape asking for Russian President Dmitri Medvedev for “space.” “This is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility,” Obama implored.
Obama assured the departing Russian President he will have the “flexibility” required to deal with missile defense issues after the 2012 presidential election.
In the past Russia has strongly opposed the fortification being built in Europe to intercept ballistic missiles.Its leadership fears the US will use the system against Russia, but the US insists its intended purpose is strictly for defense against countries such as Iran.
As RT reported earlier this month, American authorities could soon be involving Russia on their classified data regarding the missile defense system in Europe. The motion to recruit the former Cold War rival is part of an ongoing effort to re-tune the ties between the US and Russia.
“I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir,” Medvedev responded, referring to the soon to be Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The two which were unaware that their actions were being recorded seemed to have a genuine understanding of the situation while in the South Korean capital of Seoul. The two superpowers haven’t exactly seen eye to eye when it comes to how to implement their respective anti-missile programs.
