Trump to look at recognizing Crimea as Russian territory, lifting sanctions

Donald Trump said Wednesday he would consider recognizing Crimea as Russian territory and lifting the sanctions against the country if he’s elected president.

At a wide-ranging news conference, Trump said he “would be looking into that” when asked about his stance on Crimea and Russia. The Crimean Peninsula has been part of Ukraine for decades, but Russian President Vladimir Putin annexed the territory in March 2014 after a popular revolt toppled Kiev’s pro-Russian government.

    And consider this

    But understand that Trump will be attacked vigorously from
    the left and some from extreme right. Much will said to
    obscure or obfuscate the truth.

    Understand the forces against Trump. Some of which include
    the left that is current Marxist, the bureaucrats in Washington
    afraid of smaller government, and the main stream media.

    Trump runs his mouth to gain attention then in a day or two
    modifies things. For him to consider Crimea does not mean in
    end he will support Russia.

    Would you rather support Hillary who wants to reduce strength
    of American military?

    Seek the truth and weigh the truth. What you hear in sound bits is
    not always the truth. And weigh heavily the gist the words the main stream
    media feeds you.

    The main stream media is not following up with defining questions, rather
    uses sound bits to paint a picture to influence YOU!

    And to the southern neighbors of Crimea, we have a libertarian dream come true,
    they want to close the NATO-American airbase in Turkey. Yes, the Peace Prize President, the closing of NATO bases and Trump wanting to withdraw from this world, Yes, peace in our time.

    And Erdogan to visit Putin in a few days;
    Excerpt from Russia Insider;
    On August 9, in St. Petersburg, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin will meet Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The moment is revolutionary. There has not been a comparable political turning-point in the 67 years since the establishment of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO); not in the century since the Ottoman Empire sided with Germany against Russia in World War I….
