President Trump, through his Press Secretary told reporters Tuesday that he expects Russia to return Crimea to the Ukraine.

I am confused because I have been told by the left stream media over and over again that he is secretly working with the Russians to help them out.

In fact President Trump’s US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told the UN Security Council on Feb 3 that Russia illegally occupied and annexed Crimea in 2014, and remains under international sanction for doing so.

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley stated:

The United States continues to condemn and call for an immediate end to the Russian occupation of Crimea.  Crimea is a part of Ukraine. Our Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns control over the peninsula to Ukraine

In response to President Trump’s statement Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Maria Zakharova told reporters in Moscow:

We don’t give back our own territory. Crimea is territory belonging to the Russian Federation.  The theme of returning Crimea will not be discussed … Russia does not discuss its territorial integrity with foreign partners

Sounds like a cozy relationship to me, does it to you.  In a beginning of a relationship you always want to demand something that the other party will never agree to right?

Will the left stream media accurately and repeatedly report this, do not hold your breath. If President Trump was too cozy do you think he would call for Russia to return the land that they stole and occupy?  This was a major move by Russian President Putin and is essential to Putin showing his power to the Russian people and the world.

So which is it, is President Trump too cozy with Russia or not?  His statements sure do not indicate that.
