In the days leading up to President Trumps historic meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the most outspoken critics of Trump did not waste a moment to declare that Trump’s motives for doing something, in this case trying to establish peace with an equal nuclear power, would bring about the destruction of the world.
That might be a slight exaggeration, but not by much. Listing to Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi’s rhetoric and the constant montage of Trump Derangement Syndrome taking place on the mainstream media, the average American citizen was being convinced of just that – Trump’s actions would have catastrophic repercussions.
What they did not want the American people to believe, is that President Trump meeting with Putin could actually succeed in stabilizing the rising threat of nuclear war between Russia and the United States.
Therefore, their hysterical reaction to the meeting is not all that surprising, after all, the Deep State has been working hard for the past 20 years to make Russia out to be our enemy, and their claim that Trump colluded with them is falling apart. They want this hysteria more than they want world peace.advertisement - story continues below
Listen to Ron Paul’s perspective as reported by RT:
“I was very pleased with what went on today,” Paul said. He added that if the two leaders ever had a serious discussion, “I guess it would come out on how much we’ve been involved when we shouldn’t be involved, for instance in Ukraine, and how that occurred.”
“But if they don’t want to concentrate on those problems and they want to look forward I think that is great… I think the next best step ever would be for us to reassess this and say that Trump’s going in the right direction and talk him into getting rid of the sanctions on Russia.”
Paul also addressed the US media, calling it a “big problem” because “they’re almost unanimously endorsing the idea that we have to have an enemy, and at this point – especially for the last 20 years – they’ve been working very hard to make Russia the enemy, and I think this is wrong.”advertisement - story continues below
When asked by RT why the US media already seems angry about the meeting between the two presidents, he said: “It’s hard to say, but we usually describe that there is a secret government that likes to control things and most people know what we talk about when we talk about the ‘deep state.’ And they do have a lot of clout, they are very much involved in the media and the leadership of both parties, so both parties and the media are very, very, annoyed with Trump [being so] independent.”
Paul also addressed the recent indictment of 12 Russian individuals by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, saying there is “an argument why Russia is an enemy and we have to quit talking to them and I think it’s just a propaganda stunt and I think those indictments were more about propaganda than seeking justice.”
The retired Libertarian senator’s comments came just after Trump and Putin met in Helsinki, holding a joint press conference in which they once again reiterated that no meddling or collusion had taken place during the 2016 presidential election.
