UPDATED: Trump’s Aides Say Story That Trump Will Meet With Putin Weeks After Taking Office Is “FANTASY”
TRUMP TO VISIT PUTIN FIRST
Originally it had been reported that Donald Trump would be meeting with Vladimir Putin shortly after being sworn into Office on January 20, 2017.
From The Sunday Times:
Donald Trump is planning to hold a summit with Vladimir Putin within weeks of becoming president — emulating Ronald Reagan’s Cold War deal-making in Reykjavik with Mikhail Gorbachev.
Trump and his team have told British officials that their first foreign trip will be a meeting with the Russian leader, with the Icelandic capital in pole position to host the superpower talks as it did three decades ago.
“The Story Is A Fantasy”
In an unsurprising turn of events, it turns out that the media once again published something that was NOT true about Donald Trump.
Two top aides to President-elect Donald Trump denied a published report on Saturday that he is planning to hold a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin weeks after taking office.
The Sunday Times of London reported that Trump had told British officials that such a summit was being planned, possibly to be staged in the Icelandic capital of Reykjavik.
“The story is a fantasy,” one Trump aide told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity. Another said the report was not true.
