Democrats and the media put all their eggs in one basket.
They thought the Russia collusion story could force Donald Trump from office.
But Trump ended the investigation with one statement.
Trump was being interviewed by Reuters and he was asked about the North Korean nuclear crisis.
The President praised China for helping out but accused Russia of assisting the North Koreans in skirting the sanctions Trump negotiated.
“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.”
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.
With North Korea persisting as the major global challenge facing Trump this year, the president cast doubt during the 53-minute interview 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.”
This interview demonstrates once and for all that the collusion narrative was nothing more than a Democrat hoax.
Trump’s answer revealed a President who is willing to criticize Russia when warranted.
Had Trump been in league with the Russians he would not have publically exposed their treachery in assisting North Korea.
The collusion narrative has always been fake news.
Trump said there was no way Russia would want him to win because he took a tougher policy stance than Hillary Clinton.
This interview proved Trump right.
