      Since Sputnik is publishing a lot of dirt on Trump to try and make his base think something has changed, here:
      www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2017/live-updates/trump-white-house/confirmation-hearings-trump-spea

      Here's a quote from the link below.

      "I don't know that I'm going to get along with Vladimir Putin," he said. "I hope I do. But there's a good chance I won't. And if I don't, do you honestly believe that Hillary would be tougher on Putin than me? Does anybody in this room really believe that? Give me a break."
      www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2017/01/11/trump_an_asset_not_a_liability_that_putin_likes_me_does_a

      Here's what the lying Washington Post reports, do give an idea of what "they" (MSM and Matrix admin) are doing. :
      "Trump added that he will certainly be tougher on Putin than Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton would have been. Trump’s message for those who believe otherwise: “Give me a break.”

      Here's another quote from Clear Politics, which had the decency to use the entire response to a question.

      "If Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability. Because we have a horrible relationship with Russia. Russia can help us fight ISIS," Trump said.

      All of th above quotes are from the same press conference today. Trump is NOT flipping on his promises. The globalists want as many people as possible to be angry at Trump and they will stop at nothing.

      Civilians need to understand that there is a media war. They will lie to you and hurt you without hesitation to get what globalists want. one-government, authoritarian rule of the world. Nothing from progressive "reporters" or their RINO allies can be believed without solid confirmation. Tillerson and Sessions are doing fine with their hearing and should have no problem being confirmed. Trump has NOT changed his view that Russia is a better as a friend than as an enemy.
