Saturday Open Thread | Putin Told Trump To Stop Joint Military Exercises With S. Korea

A bombshell 6/25/2018 segment on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show just confirmed Yours Truly’s suspicions. Turns out per Maddow, that Trump had initially wanted to end joint military operations between the U.S. & North Korea but dropped the idea after pushback from Defense Secretary Mattis.

Later however, following a phone conversation with Putin, Trump abruptly decided to end the crucial joint military exercises that are meant to provide readiness in the unfortunate event North Korea launches a nuclear strike.

Even more troubling, and an issue that Congressional Dems should definitely inquire into, is the shocking revelation by Maddow that prior to Trump making the highly consequential decision on S. Korea joint exercises, neither Sec Def Mattis nor senior White House officials were consulted. In other words Putin simply told Trump to do it and he did it—fast!!

This is a very troubling development given that virtually all U.S. Intel agencies agree that Russia is not only America’s enemy but is actively working to inflict harm on America. The shocking report by Maddow that despite this threat, Putin is literally telling the U.S. President what to do with senior government officials seemingly left in the dark should be cause for great alarm.
