MOSCOW — Russian President Vladi­mir Putin ranged from conflict zones to U.S. politics Thursday in a news conference that tried to close gaps with Washington over Syria, noted that Moscow remained engaged in Ukraine and gave a nod to Donald Trump as the “absolute leader” in the White House race.

“He’s a very lively man, talented without doubt,” Putin said according to the Interfax news service after the three-hour news conference. He added that Trump is the “absolute leader in the presidential race.”

Looks like Trump gets Vlad's vote!



“He’s saying he wants to go to another level of relations, closer, deeper relations with Russia,” Putin continued. “How can we not welcome that? Of course we welcome that.”

He must not want Trump to win, with roughly 67% of the US population viewing Russia unfavourably!

Absolute leader= Arrogant, narcissistic bully. Like Hitler and Stalin, Trump and Putin complete each other.

Why Donald Trump Is Vladimir Putin’s Favorite Presidential Candidate

Almost all Russian media is controlled by the Kremlin and Trump was known to butter Putin's bread from time-to-time. They share the same opinion about how the US handled Libya and Iraq.


“You can make the case, if you look at Libya, look at what we did there — it's a mess — if you look at Saddam Hussein with Iraq, look what we did there — it's a mess — it's [Syria] going to be same thing," Trump said.

It’s not known whether any members of the Kremlin-run Russian news media physically injured themselves trying to rush Trump’s comments into print, but they were clearly in a hurry. Trump’s suggestion that murderous dictators Saddam Hussein, Moammar Qaddafi and Bashar al-Assad might best have been left in power is so at odds with current U.S. policy, and so in line with Putin’s worldview, that getting his comments into the public realm was plainly a high priority.

State-run Sputnik News (see above) quickly made Trump’s comments its main story.

Trump, at the time, seemed little interested in staying in the middle east. You have to wonder if the last few terror attacks have changed his opinion about bringing the heat. He seems quite ready to unleash hell on ISIS and hopefully in a much more surgical manner than what has been allowed to take place. If you can cleanly remove evil from the face of the earth with as little casualties as possible, there is no reason in sticking around after it's done.

Our humanitarian efforts seem like an afterthought. We can't always make up for the lives we needlessly took in reaching our objective. And there in lies the problem, it's always our objective. Putin may believe that Trump will effectively help wipe out the cancer, pull out of the region and let him (Putin), rebuild the area in his own image with or without Assad. Putin has ties with the IMF so whether the US or Russia sweep up the mess is of no concern.

I think Putin likes him so much because he knows just the presence of Trump in the presidential conversation causes some destabilizing, imagine if he won. Though I doubt he would actually win, think he's here just to mix things up
