In a huge blow to Syrian rebels and an apparent win for Putin and Assad, Trump halts their aid and training. Is this the right move at this point?

By Larry W. Gray "One of the U.S. officials said the decision was part of a Trump administration effort to improve relations with Russia." Now we know what the "secret meeting" at the G20 between Trump and Putin was about.

By Ronald Nixon No you don't. I do, but you don't.

By Larry W. Gray Yes, I'm sure you appreciate his support for Russia and Vladimir Putin, over his own Intelligence agencies like the FBI, CIA and NSA. And now that collusion charges are becoming clearer each day, we'll see how long your tin plated god lasts in the White House. I don't think your little bombast and so-called comedy, will save him and his family of traitors. Then they can climb back under the slimy rock that they slithered out of in New York.

By Ronald Nixon Trump ain't going nowhere. Even his lawyers have realized there's no case here, so they've moved on.

By Larry W. Gray Well, that's news to me. Last I read, his lawyers were furious with him for doing that long interview with the New York Times, which is odd since he constantly refers to the NYT as "fake news." He openly stated that he was very disappointed with his own Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, and wishes that he had never appointed him as Attorney General. Trump also said that Special Prosecutor Mueller would be "crossing the line" if he expanded his investigation into Trump's business and financial records. Mueller is doing exactly that. So, Trump could possibly fire Mueller, setting of a Constitutional crisis, just as Richard Nixon did when he fired Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox. That action led to his resignation as president. Trump is damned if he does and damned if he doesn't. Mueller will find a huge number of Russian deals done by Trump, even after Trump said he had NO business ties to Russian, none! Not to mention that Trump's tax records will probably be made public, especially at the conclusion of the investigation. The rats are abandoning the sinking ship, S.S. Trump, and he and his administration are now at each other's throats, throwing anyone who is seen as a problem under the bus, especially Trump himself. I am just wondering if you will continue to support Trump if it is proven that he lied under oath, colluded with Russia by himself or his campaign staff, though we already know that Manafort, Don Jr., Kushner and at least three others, who are Russians, did collude in the meeting that Don Jr. provided the email proof for, only because the NYT informed him that they had the emails and were going to print them? Trump is researching his ability to pardon himself and his family members, and probably some other staffers as well. Why, oh why, would an innocent man do that? Hmmm, provocative! Donald Trump's little dysfunctional presidency isn't long for the world, the House of Cards is beginning to fall, and the world will breathe a sigh of relief when Trump and his "Children of the Corn" family, go back to New York with their tails between their legs, permanently humiliated in the history books.

By Ronald Nixon It's called feeding disinformation into the lying mainstream media.

By Larry W. Gray "Feeding disinformation into the lying mainstream media?" I'm not sure WHY someone would do that, add "fake news" to a "fake news" outlet? For what purpose, he and his followers ALREADY believe the mainstream press is "fake news." So, everything Trump said in that interview was a lie? Then how does that make him any better than any other liar or "fake news" in the world? His attorneys were furious that he gave the interview without consulting them, that is what they are there for. But, Donald Trump does not know when to shut up, and he blurts out things that hurt his cause and make him appear as insincere at best, and a complete and total liar at worst. Deliberately lying in an highly public interview with the press, shows the folly or his own narcissism and ignorance as to the possible repercussions of his actions. You may think it was a great idea, unfortunately, for you, the vast majority of people who saw or read the transcript of the interview, are almost universally condemning it and calling it, interestingly, with a Trump catchphrase, "a disaster." And still the Trumptards bow and scrape before their tarnished idol, oblivious to the reality of what Trump is doing to this country.

By Ronald Nixon The truth is that liberals and terrorists have the same agenda. If the Democrat party does not back down and dissolve itself, we will treat their next candidate as an attempted coup and arrest them for treason.

By Larry W. Gray You're kidding, right? LOL! The only people that should be tried for treason are those people who colluded with the Russians to win the election. Trump and his whole administration should be shot.

By Ronald Nixon No joke Larry. We will convince 40% of voters right after the convention that the Dems are attempting a coup. That will enter the echo chamber and amplify.

We're mean, and we're getting meaner. The ends justify the means.

By Larry W. Gray I think the real number is 36%...and falling.

By Ronald Nixon Whoever the dems nominate, we open immediate investigations into them and ruin them right away.

It's time to disband and dissolve the democrat party before you embarrass yourselfs any further.

By Larry W. Gray "embarrass"Democrats? 36% approval for Trump. He is having his attorneys research his power to pardon himself and others. If he fires Robert Mueller, or premptively pardon himself or anyone else. He's done. Only criminals need to be pardoned. Democrats "embarrassed?" LOL!!!!!!!!!!!
