President Trump met Friday with Russia's Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, in their first formal sit-down. "It's an honor to be with you," Trump said, adding he hopes for "positive things" for both countries. Given the controversy surrounding alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election and Democrats' efforts to tie Trump to Putin, the first meeting between the men was being closely watched. Building expectations, Trump tweeted ahead of the meeting: "I will represent our country well and fight for its interests! Fake News Media will never cover me accurately but who cares! We will !" The Trump-Putin powwow comes amid shifting Trump rhetoric, as the president has begun taking a harder line with Russia.
Breitbart News politics reporter Adam Shaw joined the Todd Starnes Show today to discuss his latest column in which he writes that Trump's Poland speech is the final nail in the coffin for the Obama Era. Shaw elaborates on what he meant:
I focused specifically on one part of his speech yesterday in Poland where he said 'the fundamental question of our time is whether the west have the will to survive' and he asked, do we have the confidence in our values to defend them at any cost? And the whole speech, but especially that part, just struck me as how different it was from 8 years of Obama, and I argue in the piece that Trump has struggled to find his feet abroad and on foreign policy. But here what you're seeing is he's finding his feet and he's finding his voice he's now laying out the Trump doctrine, which is we need to fight for America and we need to fight for the west.
