President Trump: Russia Is Helping North Korea Evade American Sanctions

One step forward, and then six million steps back – that seems to be the trend with the Trump Administration one year in.

Like with everything else, I’m noticing a serious discrepancy between what we were promised during the Campaign, and what we’ve seen from the President once he entered office.

We were told that friendship and mutual respect with the Russians was one of the top goals, and yet now we’re back to Obama-tier accusations that have no weight or evidence behind them.

Reuters:

U.S. President Donald Trump complained on Wednesday that Russia was helping North Korea to evade international sanctions, signaling frustration with a country he had hoped to forge friendly relations with after his 2016 election win.

“Russia is not helping us at all with North Korea,” Trump said during an Oval Office interview with Reuters. “What China is helping us with, Russia is denting. In other words, Russia is making up for some of what China is doing.”

Why should Russia be forced to bow to America’s will?

I thought we were supposed to be against Globalism and against acting as the world’s police force.

China and Russia both signed onto the latest rounds of United Nations Security Council sanctions against North Korea imposed last year. There was no immediate comment from the Russian embassy in Washington on Trump’s remarks.

During a 53-minute interview with a fresh Diet Coke near at hand on his desk, Trump also said he was considering a big “fine” as part of an investigation into China’s alleged theft of intellectual property; that he has lost all trust in the chief Democratic Party negotiator on immigration in the Senate; and declined to clear up conflicting reports about his use of the phrase “shithole countries” in a White House meeting, which caused an international outcry.

With North Korea persisting as the major global challenge facing Trump this year, the president cast doubt on whether talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would be useful. In the past he has not ruled out direct talks with Kim.

“I’d sit down, but I‘m not sure that sitting down will solve the problem,” he said, noting that past negotiations with the North Koreans by his predecessors had failed to rein in North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs.

Trump said Russia appears to be filling in the gaps left by the Chinese.

Western European security sources told Reuters in December that Russian tankers had supplied fuel to North Korea on at least three occasions in recent months by transferring cargoes at sea in violation of international sanctions. Russia has denied breaching North Korea sanctions.

Are these the same security sources that helped the Americans, Israelis, and Saudis try to stir up a color revolution inside Iran?

I think we should at least be given something more than an anonymous informant that could easily be another piece of fake news.

North Korea relies on imported fuel to keep its struggling economy functioning. It also requires oil for its intercontinental ballistic missile and nuclear program.

Combined with the counter-signalling in Syria, the Air Force dick-measuring in the Baltic Sea, and the arming of Ukrainians, it looks like we have something closer to what Hillary would have done with the Russians rather than what Donald proposed in 2015 and 2016.

  1. It’s like Napoleon bitching about Czar Alexander evading the Continental system excluding Britain from trade with major powers.

    What is Trump gonna do March in Moscow?

    • NATO forces are conducting yet another act of aggression against Russia right now with their latest training exercise in eastern Europe. Operation Tactical Resolve, or some such rubbish.

  2. That’s complete nonsense. The Chinese are doing all of that, not Russia.

    All southern nationalist should regard Russia as our friend, including supplying various types of hardware. For farming and other things.

  3. Why shouldn’t Russia support its ally? Russia wishes to keep the allies it had as the USSR, regardless of political system. Countries, not governments.

    If North Korea fell and became dominated by the South in a re-unified peninsula, South Korea’s American allies would be sitting on yet another Russian border. Russia values North Korea as a buffer.

  4. Me, too, Marcus. I remember watching Trump foreign policy speeches in 2016 and cheering. Now I am thoroughly disgusted. I am not willing to put all the blame on Trump and call him a con-man, however. I think the foreign policy of the US continues on its path by auto-pilot and not even the president can change it. If Trump were to start a policy of rapprochement with Russia it would trigger immediate impeachment with cries of “See, he’s a Russian traitor.” And, of course, Israel controls ME policy. Thus there must be regime change in Syria.

  5. Fake news from Kikes.

    The ADL Report On “White Supremacist” Killings Is The Usual Pack Of Lies, Remarkable For What It Ignores

    It’s the word “domestic” that does it–they’re only counting American citizens as terrorists. The attacks on 9/11 don’t count, for example, because the killers came from Saudi Arabia, and had definite foreign backing. Omar Mateen is included in 2016’s domestics because he was “born in Queens, the same place Donald was born,” as Hillary Clinton put it in the Third Presidential Debate. ( She thought she was scoring a point.)

    Also, the small number (34!) suggests that American has almost no domestic extremist violence. For comparison, in Baltimore (pop. 621, 000, ) there were 343 murders, a record in murders per capita.

    In Chicago (pop. 2, 705, 000 ) there were 650 murders, down from 771 the last year of the Obama Administration.

    In the entire US, pop. 326.5 million, there were 34 of this special kind of murder, committed for ideological reasons, by someone “domestic.”

    As you can tell from the picture used by the Atlantic, they count the death of Heather Heyer at Charlottesville as a murder, although it may been an accident. The full report is at Murder and Extremism in the United States in 2017.

    They include the Uzbek bike path killer as a 2017 domestic extremist, but don’t include any of these crimes from our immigrant mass murder list, although the Emanuel Kidega attack on the church was the precise mirror image of the Dylann Roof shootings, and many of these were obvious cases of anti-white racism.

    2017 Emanuel Kidega, Sudanese refugee, attempted murder at Tennessee Church, killed 1, wounded 6
    2017 Bampumim Teixeira , Cape Verdean legal permanent resident killed 2 doctors.
    2017 Henry Bello, Nigerian “doctor” who shot up Bronx hospital, killed 1, wounded 6.
    2017 Salvador Vasquez-Oliva, Salvadoran, killed 4 in Sacramento.
    2017 Nengmy Vang, Hmong gunman, kills 4 whites in Wisconsin. (The second such incident in Wisconsin, the previous one was in 2002.)
    2017 Esteban Santiago, Puerto Rican Florida Airport shooter, killed 5, wounded 6.
    Apparently it doesn’t count as “domestic-extremist” murder if it’s just normal minority violence.

  6. I’m noticing a serious discrepancy between what we were promised during the Campaign, and what we’ve seen from the President once he entered office.

    In this case, the Left shouldn’t be too upset. Trump is doing exactly what they want. With Clinton, however, we’d be at war with Russia over Syria.

  7. Having nukes is NK’s insurance policy against becoming the next Iraq or Syria. Do we not have sanctions against Russia? Sanctions are an act of war but we expect them to cooperate with us? Putin must be a man long on patience. I dread the day he finally says enough is enough.
