The near-constant developments suggesting that Trump has close personal ties to the Kremlin keep mounting…
On Wednesday evening, the Russian Prime Minister weighed in on the topic of U.S. sanctions on Russia, but what he said has many eyebrows raising.
‘The US establishment fully outwitted Trump. The President is not happy about the sanctions, yet he could not but sign the bill’
The US establishment fully outwitted Trump. The President is not happy about the sanctions, yet he could not but sign the bill

How is it that the Russian prime minister is so certain that the American president is “not happy about the sanctions?” He speaks of Trump in this tweet as though Trump is their man on the inside — as though he did his best but, as he says verbatim, the “US establishment fully outwitted [him].”
This ominous tweet is not the first that has come out of Russia regarding their belief that the Trumps are indeed working towards their interests, either.
Earlier in the evening, Medvedev posted the following message on his Facebook page, which reads:
‘The US President’s signing of the package of new sanctions against Russia will have a few consequences…The US establishment fully outwitted Trump; the President is not happy about the new sanctions, yet he could not but sign the bill. The issue of new sanctions came about, primarily, as another way to knock Trump down a peg. New steps are to come, and they will ultimately aim to remove him from power…Thus, relations between Russia and the United States are going to be extremely tense regardless of Congress’ makeup and regardless of who is president. Lengthy arguments in international bodies and courts are ahead, as well as rising international tensions and refusal to settle major international issues…’
What is it that the Russian PM knows about Trump, that he can predict his removal with such confidence? We suppose only time will tell. Perhaps, now that the Trump managing to lift U.S. economic sanctions on Russia is off the table, he’ll stop being seen as an asset worth protecting.
