Global Geopolitical Series: Syria solution nears thanks to Trump-Putin chemistry

"He says, 'I didn't do that.' I think he is very insulted by that, if you want to know the truth", Trump said. We agreed with Trump on that subject, and still do.

But once again, in that same answer, Trump chose to empathize with Putin, even suggesting that the US ought to consider pulling back on sanctions imposed on Russian Federation.

TAPPER: "Do you know of any compromising material the Russians might have on him?".

Trump also suggested he believes Putin over the US intelligence community, which has concluded that Russian Federation did in fact intervene in the election with by coordinating a campaign of cyberattacks and fake news postings on social media. Donald told friends he accepted what the girls told him: "She said it's her, not me". And Trump says the intelligence officials who issued a report concluding that Russian Federation had interfered in our elections are political hacks but he agrees with intelligence officials he's appointed who agree with the conclusions in the report produced by those political hacks. "I believe in our intel agencies, our intelligence agencies".

Finally President Trump and President Putin confirmed the importance of de-escalation areas as an interim step to reduce violence in Syria, enforce ceasefire agreements, facilitate unhindered humanitarian access, and set the conditions for the ultimate political solution to the conflict. It's obvious. He had the most to gain and it helped get him elected. Apparently, the USA leader was reluctant to discuss global issues with Vladimir Putin.

"The Trump administration's plan of substituting bilateral FTAs for the multilateral TPP is going nowhere fast", said Bonnie Glaser, an Asia scholar at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "I've worked with them very strongly". They expressed their satisfaction with successful U.S. -Russia enhanced de-confliction efforts between U.S. and Russian military professionals that have dramatically accelerated ISIS's losses on the battlefield in recent months.

Meanwhile, over on Comedy Central's The Daily Show, Trevor Noah couldn't comprehend why Trump defended Putin and believed in his innocence, only based on what Putin told him. Back in Washington, however, the White House had no ready defense of the president's remarks. Why is the president so insecure about the last election? "He's the President of the United States".

But in every country Trump visited, none of the leaders entered trade negotiations or offered significant concessions to the former real estate magnate and Art of the Deal author. Russia, however, views stringent economic measures against the North as a recipe for initiating the collapse of the Kim regime in Pyongyang, which would, in Russia's estimation, lead to widespread social instability - to say nothing of the potential economic reverberations across Northeast Asia.
