What did Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin REALLY talk about — all by themselves (not counting the two translators … ) for over two hours in Helsinki — on July 16?
My bet is that NO ONE (besides the translators) have the remotest clue … because it was about things “having nothing to do with ANY of the public furor that has swirled around this historic meeting ever since.”
Why else all the (truly unprecedented) SUPER SECRECY?!
My guest tonight, Russian historian Dr. Richard Spence, will lay out the crucial background to this meeting, as we then freely speculate about Trump’s totally unexpected SECOND invitation to the Russian President — within days of the intensely controversial Helsinki meeting — to “continue the discussion” this Fall–
I think it all comes down to the soccer ball the Russian President casually tossed to the American President at the end of the Helsinki press briefing … along with Putin’s cryptic comment:
“The ball is now in your court!”
