The G20 Fractures — Tensions in Hamburg

A photoshopped image of the recent G20 summit has been circulating on social media.

"President Trump will be happy to make statements himself about that", Mnuchin said.

Asked on Sunday whether new sanctions were in the pipeline, US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin told ABC television: "We have sanctions that are already on the table and we expect to enforce those sanctions". He has reminded the democratic left and the democratic right - note the small "d" - that they share more common ground than they often realize about the importance of democracy, the gifts of modernity, and the value of pluralism. Yes, the members remained "collectively committed to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions" through a range of technologies using clean, efficient energy. "I think he took it into consideration and agreed with it. But you should ask him what his opinion is on that".

Donald Trump's proposal to form a 'cyber security unit' with Putin is a terrible idea that would immediately jeopardize American cybersecurity. He evidently greeted his Russian counterpart with respect and friendly politeness. Everybody knows that they're not just meddling in the United States' election. Putin assured him that such claims were baseless.

"I am sure that Vladimir Putin could be of enormous assistance in that effort, since he's doing the hacking", McCain said on CBS' "Face the Nation". Hours later, however, he appeared to back away from the suggestion.

Russia's intelligence agencies are their leading cyber-antagonists - they've compromised White House and Pentagon emails, stolen secrets and may have helped exploit powerful hacking tools lost by the National Security Agency and CIA. It is not only an insane waste of time and political energy, it is an incredibly dangerous escalation of tensions between nuclear-armed states.

That's certainly one way to look at it. On the other hand, Andrea Mitchell, NBC News' chief foreign affairs correspondent, and a veteran reporter who's covered a great many presidential trips abroad, concluded over the weekend, "I can't think of a worse summit since Reykjavik". Nile Gardiner, a foreign policy analyst for the conservative Heritage Foundation, which has close ties to the Trump White House, praised the president as "the most outspoken and unconventional U.S. president of modern time" and said he is still managing to articulate a "coherent doctrine and vision".

In the end, Trump and Putin defied the tyranny of idiotic Russophobia by holding a constructive, genuine dialogue, rather than a contrived showdown about nothing.

"Now it is time to move forward in working constructively with Russia!"

Trump's embrace of Putin was no doubt heartfelt and natural. "The perspective of both of them was: This is a really important relationship". Trump doesn't have freedom or real power.

That work, Trump said, will include a new ceasefire in Syria, as well as a joint cybersecurity operation. If we fail to defend what our "ancestors" passed down to us, Trump warned, "it will never, ever exist again".

While the Russian controversy deepens, the President may also be called into rescue the faltering push to repeal Obamacare, amid signs that discord in the Senate over the issue could derail a foundational Republican promise. The odious American show will go on. "They're going to always have two different stories on this", she said.
