Trump to Warm Relations with Putin in Iceland

January 15, 2017

Donald Trump’s first foreign trip as president is expected to be a visit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, The Sunday Times reported late Saturday.

The U.K. newspaper said Trump and his team told British officials that their first foreign trip would be a summit in Iceland with Putin within weeks of his inauguration.

The plan is likely a nod to Ronald Reagan’s Cold War visit in Reykjavik with Mikhail Gorbachev, the newspaper noted.

    During WWII the U.S. and Russia were Allies to defeat NAZIism. Is there ANY reason why WE cannot be allies again against a common enemy ISIS?

  • Roy Fredrichsen says:

    I have been wondering why there is so much animosity about Russia. Now that the rest of the world is being attacked by ISIS, why not try making an ally with Russia since we both are fighting a common enemy?

  • Roy Fredrichsen says:

    Everyone in Washington seems to think Russia is the enemy. Nobody has thought how to make Russia an ally against such murderous regimes as ISIS and Boko Haram, and other splinter groups that have no respect for anything.

  • KDS says:

    We all know the Russian people are just like us. We do not want war. We want friendships. What a terrible thing that our soldiers could fight there soldiers because an idoit wants to take over the World. I cannot believe Putin wants this either.

  • CharlieSeattle says:

    Trump, please do not look into Putin’s eyes, like W Bush did, and say

    ” I looked into his eyes and saw his soul.” No man crush like W….Please!


    Hopefully this meeting with Putin will bring both Super Powers together where they can work for World Peace… We don’t need a Nuclear Conflict….

  • AKLady2015 says:

    Yes, Hitler Little Hands is going to meet his master and pick up his paycheck.

    1. CharlieSeattle says:

      Yes, Obama getting his payoff.

  • Mike Todd says:

    It matters not whether one is on the right, the left, or in the middle, everyone interprets what they choose to see in whatever way they choose. Unfortunately, some of those who choose to open their dialog also try to impose their perspective on everyone else. It is those who actually believe they are in a position to affect everyone else are the ones who act the boldest and try to make themselves look “the best”. Frankly, I am pleased with how I have lived my life (for myself and my family), and I have no expectations of holding influence over “the masses”. Good Thoughts and Good Luck to everyone…

    Mike Todd (first Assistant Surgeon General of the Navy for Information Systems, the person who introduced the MUMPS (or “m”) language to the United States Government (Navy, Army, Air Force, Public Health Service, Indian Health Service, Department of Defense, and also for the American insurance companies such as Banner Health and my TRICARE Retired Dental Program (TRDP) – that make life a little more bearable – and thankful for me available only to U.S. military veterans) as I said – Good Luck to everyone…

  • soljerblue says:

    Very good move on Trump’s part, and an overdue shot across the bows of those — neo-cons and progs — trying to re-start the Cold War.

    1. Retired says:

      Just remember the Demon Rats – Media and Obama are not finished yet trying to destroy Trump and the Republicans .

      1. soljerblue says:

        Who could forget? But — BizPac Review is now reporting that Sean Spicer says the story is false.

  • John Burnett says:

    I think Donald and Putin will become friends and put to rest the “us vs them” thinking that’s so old school. They’ll partner up as a 3-some with China and the whole world will be so much better off than it’s ever been.

    1. Retired says:

      At least they will sit down and talk which is more than the Brown Clown and his Party were able to do.


    McCain and Graham should offer to declare war on Russia rather than increase sanctions. Their irresponsible bluff to trash Trump should be called. You don’t call heads of state criminals and KGB murderers and expect things to improve. Trump is right to give peace a try. He can always change course.

  • eddie says:

    May God Bless President Trump!!! ( feels good to write that) the American People and yes the Russian people ( they have souls too ) President Reagan and President Trump were/Are True Leaders!!!!! …. e ; )

  • theseer says:

    Putin must be relieved he doesnt have to deal with the weak homosexual anti America fraud muslim imposter we have had for 8 yrs…parading around as president…they both most likely will shake their heads in disgust about Obarry Soetero Soebarack mohammed Obama and a few laughs about him!!!!

    1. snowyriver says:

      Being an usurper or an imposter to the presidency of the United States is no laughing matter and should be handled and prosecuted by as our laws see fit. Imagining Obama in an orange jump suit… lol lol.

        Don’t forget he was the UN puppet.

  • theseer says:

    I believe both Vlad and The Donald have respect for each other… both very smart and know each other are strong leaders.

    1. snowyriver says:

      How many people in American know that Obama administration is backing ISIS in the conflict in Syria?

      1. theseer says:

        I would guess not many know as the anti American muslim Obarry administration prevents truths coming out!

      2. pamlois says:

        Why else would the U.S. be infested with ISIS slugs. Invitation!!

      3. ipsd48 says:

        Isn’t that obvious?

  • donl says:

    Great, this summit should have very good results. The times i have seen OBIE and PUTIN together wasn’t really all that “Warm”.

  • ONLYJB1 says:

    All America needs to pray that Putin will refrain. Vlad has intimidated barry soreoto for 8 years. I believe Putin realizes obama’s short falls. Just hold off a few more days for us to rid ourselves of the destructive obama’s! Oh what a legacy. The first negro/ muslim American president to go up against the Russians and the Russians just laughed at him!

  • Jim says:

    Ever go to bed angry with you spouse? No communication leads to disaster, if we had leaders …… real LEADERS, we could have avoided must of the conflicts going on now and many of them from the past.

    The progressive liberals make a lot of money siding towards WAR or conflicts.
    It is very refreshing to have a LEADER, willing to talk.
    Not since Ronald Reagan have we had a LEADER that was willing to talk to other leaders.

    This is not a sign of weakness, but, a sign of strength!

    The Democrats and a few Republicans are more then willing to send your Family members to die, because they have no courage to meet face to face with those that could do massive harm around the globe!

    It is time to VOTE out the cowards and replace them with common sense!

    1. Retired says:

      Actually G Bush was also able to talk to leaders even though Cheney ran things.

      1. pamlois says:

        Bush was at least smart enough to have capable people in his cabinet (Cheney & Rumsfeld) which is more than anyone can say about Barry.

        1. Retired says:

          With some luck we should see the same with Trump, those that do not pan out will be replaced. Right now the biggest problem are the Clinton people creating useless problems instead of trying to unite the country.The Dems are only hurting themselves.

      2. Jim says:

        You are correct, and he did a damn good job!
        To bad Obama screwed it up!

        1. Retired says:

          O was a failure and FU. ISIS was JV . Illegals were legal to him . Satan should have been his title name.

          1. Jim says:

            Wow, hold up there. retired, My comment was in reference to your comment: to me,
            “Actually G Bush was also able to talk to leaders even though Cheney ran things.”
            And I agree Obama IS a failure.
            I think we are on the same page ???

          2. Retired says:

            You got that right , same page. Just added for those in love with Obama.

          3. Jim says:

            you don’t make any sense ….. I am not nor have I ever favored Obama, I did not like him from the beginning, and he proved I was right about him every time he opened his mouth ….. so to put me on a page in love with Obama …….. PISS OFF RETIRED!

          4. Retired says:

            Jim ::: Simmer down, I was agreeing with you.

          5. Jim says:

            Thanks, It is a new day, we have a new President, and in his speech, President Donald Trump, said:
            We are all Americans, Black, Brown, or White, we all bleed the same patriots red blood …. I agree with that.
            He called us ALL American Patriots and together we can not fail ….
            And so with that, it is time to say we are either part of the solution or we are the problem.
            I shall work on being part of the SOLUTION from here on.

            Thanks Retired and Gods speed, to making America Strong again, Safe again, Wealthy again and Great again.

          6. Retired says:

            I hope Trump gets more support in the future. with all these demonstrations right now and others being planned it will be tough going. The Crap has to stop from the Bottom up. Someone is organizing all these demonstrations and needs to be exposed along with a long prison term..

          7. Jim says:

            That is for sure, I think a solution could be demanding that the Cities giving protesters permits, get a non-refundable $250,000 Bond, to cover any damage caused by Demonstrators.
            Without a permit they can be arrested for unlawful assembly on the spot!

          8. Retired says:

            Problem is Democrat Mayors want to get reelected so they look the other way and then call police brutality . I live between two major Cities and everything is under Democrat control do to the inner city population thanks to high welfare.

    2. AKLady2015 says:

      Real leaders? Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, and Obama … only Ford and Bush II failed to lead.
      Trump is another Nixon, only far richer and is hugely more evil..

      1. pamlois says:

        Clinton was no leader. Ignored the Cole, the Marine barracks and American Embassy bombings, and bin Laden which led to 2 separate WTC bombings. Bosnia was a joke. His focus was on the receiving end of his own cocaine deals.

        1. Retired says:

          And the fools wanted to put the Clintons back into the WH.

        2. AKLady2015 says:

          Garbage piled higher and deeper.

          Apparently, you are not aware of the close ties between the ben Lauden and the Bush families.

          The US funded and trained “terrorist” to fight the Soviets when they occupied Afghanistan.

          The US has made a point of funding terrorists all over the world. A few examples are: Contra rebels in Nicaragua; Kashmir Princess incident; The Years of Lead (Ialy); The Piazza Fontana Bombing; Kidnapping attempt and assassination of General René Schneider; Luis Posada Carriles ….

          1. Jim says:

            Yes, and that broke Russia, pretty good job. But the screwing from Clinton was the straw that caused this mess which is still going on and your Dummy Obama only extended the war years longer then it needed to be!
            Good old Liberal Progressives ….. How do you like them now?

            Never mind. You can’t come up with an original thought.

          2. AKLady2015 says:

            Childish name calling.
            I am so not impressed..
            Maybe you should try being an adult

      2. Retired says:

        LBJ – Carter and Clinton were a failure except for the people who liked the free gov. stuff. Obama is not even worth mentioning as he moved Carter up a notch from the bottom. You just do not understand the type of individual Trump is nor have you ever worked with someone like him. Trump plays the media like a fiddle with his tweets and people fall for them.

        1. AKLady2015 says:

          I have known more than a few people like Trump in my career as a physician. The diagnosis is narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).

          It involves symptoms that Trump displays on a daily basis: Exaggerated feelings of self-importance, an excessive need for admiration, and a lack of understanding of others’ feelings.

          Sometimes your posts lean very strongly in that direction.

          1. Bill Hartman says:

            I’ll agree. But NPD is a perfect description of Obama and Hillary as well. Positions of great power attract such people. All of them are full of themselves.

          2. AKLady2015 says:

            Trump on the other hand is a legally documented racist and misogynist. I do not believe that “Just grab them by the pussy” belongs in the White House.

          3. Retired says:

            Where is the documentation that he is a racist other than in your head. Woman and girls have used the term grab him by the cock and have done it .Now what, Obama was the Chicago bath house king and you still supported him and his suspected tranny.

          4. Retired says:

            Money and power goes to peoples head no matter where they come from. We will have to wait and see how Trump does. We know the media will bash him or any other republican for that matter.

          5. Retired says:

            You still have not figured out that Trump plays the media like a fiddle with his tweets. only fools follow them just like Face book. Do you think he is actually that way in Business ?? No one would be successfull if they were . What is important that he puts people into positions that are Qualified and not just by skin color or nationality like Obama did.

          6. AKLady2015 says:

            There are many very successful people who suffer from serious personality disorders. .

            Oh, and foolish one, Obama’s IQ is in the genius range. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard. That is not an award one obtains with the colir of their skin.

          7. Retired says:

            You are wrong on that one , Obama played the Race game all his life why do you think his past was sealed . One can not even get the truth as to where he was born and where he attended for his early years.

          8. AKLady2015 says:

            The Privacy Act of 1974 (Pub.L. 93–579, 88 Stat. 1896, enacted December 31, 1974, 5 U.S.C. § 552a),
            His privacy is protected by law,
            just as your records are.

          9. Retired says:

            Big difference between the privacy law and having ones past sealed.

            Tedious, boring, repetitive …

          5. Jim says:

            Today we now have a new President. He called on ALL Americans to come together.
            President Donald Trump, called ALL Americans Patriots, and together we can not fail …… The divide that is ripping our Country apart can be corrected.
            We are either part of the solution or the problem, as for myself, I choose to be part of the solution, and will work towards that end.
            Maybe you would like to join in the healing and make American respected, safe and strong and great again.
            Sorry about the name calling … not cool!

          6. AKLady2015 says:

            He has mastered the art or the speech.
            He studied Hitler’s speeches for many years.

            Two of his wives swore to that, under oath, at divorce hearings. One attested to it in an interview for a magazine article.

            You might want to review some of Hitler’s speeches, you might come away with your eyes opened. The similarity of the propaganda is amazing. ” Make America Great Again” basically comes straight out of Hitler’s mouth.

    3. Roy Fredrichsen says:

      Nancy Pelosi and most of the congressionals from California are the trouble makers behind a move to remove TRUMP and install “that bastion of freedom”, Hillary Clinton as President so she can completely destroy the Constitution and be Queen of America.

  • Patriot41 says:

    Who cares where they meet, as long as they do meet and reach a meeting of the minds and an understanding between our two nations. Both the U.S. and Russia, can promote peace or major war and therefore such meetings of leaders are necessary.

    One would rather that such a meeting be held on a friendly bases, so that both leaders can establish a trustworthy relationship. That is precisely what Reagan and Gorbachev did. Remember Pres. Reagan’s motto, trust but verify? There must be an element of trust involved, for opposing sides to work peaceably from. If such a relationship were to be left to the major media, we would soon be involved in another world war.

      America became part of Russia on Nov. 8, the meeting is for Trump to turn over the keys to the White House.

      1. Patriot41 says:

        Sounds like a hammer and cycle cheerleader.

        1. AKLady2015 says:

          That is exactly what Trump is. He has not been a least bit shy in voicing his admiration for Putin.

          By the way, the term is “hammer and sickle (☭)”
          A sickle is a farm tool used to cut grass, wheat, hay, etc.

          1. Patriot41 says:

            Yes and a cycle cheerleader is one who repeats things over and over again. Get it?

            When comparing Putin with Obama, Putin wins the admiration every time no matter how one looks at it. One finds no problem with Trump showing respect for our adversaries. In doing so, he in turn will benefit from their respect and that can only be good for our nation. You need to consider both sides of the coin.

          2. AKLady2015 says:

            Not respect, foolish one. Trump is owned, right down to the Russians hacking the election,

          3. Patriot41 says:

            Oh really and what proof do you have of such allegations? Do you personally know Donald Trump? One seriously doubts that you do, but would guess that you are a Clinton propagandist.

          4. AKLady2015 says:

            Trump’s legal record is public information.
            That data is published by New York State Courts.
            That data is published by the federal courts.
            Trump’s business dealings with Russia are now public. Look them up.
            His dealings with Cuba are public. Look them up.

          5. Patriot41 says:

            One could look up the records of most successful business men in the U.S. and find information on their dealings with most nations around the globe. That alone is no reason to trash a man’s reputation, especially when he is a man who cares about his own nation’s future. You are way out of line!

          9. AKLady2015 says:

            You really need to study up more on why some generals were asked to retire, Putin and Bibi would have made the exact same decisions.

            I qupte retired Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis, “War is a tough auditor.”

            Gen. Stanley McChrystal engaged in conduct unbecoming an officer and a gentleman, he committed adultery and got caught. ( 10 U.S.C. § 933).

            Retired Major General Patrick Brady points to such issues as the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, which allows openly gay people into the military, allowing women into combat infantry units, along with the ill-timed and poorly aimed budget cuts from the Sequester, as being key components of the weakened morale and combat effectiveness of the military.

            In a departure memo released Jan. 5, Defense Secretary Ash Carter defended Obama’s “record of progress” with the military by praising the White House moves as creating “a smaller yet more technologically advanced and capable military that is ready for the threats of today and the challenges of tomorrow.”

          10. Retired says:

    President Reagan’s foot step in Iceland with President Gorbachev was a triamphant and historic end for the U.S. and Russia and the rest of the world. We pray the meeting for President Trump on his first foreign trip and President Vladimir Putin in Iceland be successful as well. GHU JW

  • Janthony132 says:

    I think that rump’s plan will defuse any wartime leanings. Getting rid of Isis by combined US/Russia action will not only do something needed, but just think of the international climate if Russia/US have a good working relationship – the impact on Iran, North Korea, might well think twice about their voiced intentions to attack the USA., From my view – its all positive.

    That trip will spike the progressive/socialists efforts to reinvent the cold war.
    I know the snowflakes will get their undies in a wad & claim (without any verifiable evidence) that Trump is being pushed around by Putin, when it more likely would be the other way around. (The US has a lot bigger stick than Russia)
    Actually I think that the end result will be a joint effort between the two nations to destroy ISIS completely.
    Another long term outcome is economic. The US energy production increases in the next year or so will drive the energy price down enough to strangle the Russian already weak economy. Aggressive US Exports of natural gas to Europe would bankrupt the Russian economy just like low crude prices bankrupted the USSR. Putin knows that & will play nice or see his country suffer the same fate as the USSR

    1. AKLady2015 says:

      Trump is owned. You see to be among the last to know.

      How do you expect to export gas to Europe? Maybe a pipelines under the Bering Sea?

      1. pamlois says:

        AKLady2015 – You are completely clueless. No one owns Trump, and Clinton sabotaged her own campaign by being a ruthless liar and crook. Take some time out and do some research; you just might learn something.

        1. AKLady2015 says:

          Little Hands is owned by a lot of people, but most certainly by Russia and Cuba. They have enough dirt on the man to put him in front of a firing squad for treason. You might try remembering the fact that the woman he is married to is Communist educated and raised.

          He did business with Communist Cuba during the embargo. With less than five days until he is sworn in, Trump’s financial ties deserve a level of media scrutiny that they still haven’t gotten. Trump still has not released his tax returns or been held accountable for not doing so.

    The environmentalists should be up in arms about this with Putin and Trump meeting in Iceland to warm relations.
