After White House Releases Summary of Call Between Trump and Putin, People Imagine How the Call Really Went
Russian President Vladimir Putin's relationship with President Donald Trump has been a hot topic in the United States since Trump's presidential campaign.
With evidence detailed in the Mueller Report that Trump campaign officials welcomed Russian assistance to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, Americans across the country have condemned Trump's apparent subservience to Putin.
In the Summer of 2018 at a joint conference in Helsinki, Trump infamously sided with Putin over unanimous assessments from U.S. intelligence officials that Putin ordered a sweeping disinformation campaign to influence the American election.

Vladimir Putin Slams Democrats for Impeaching Trump and It Sure Sounds Like He's Spouting White House Talking Points
On Wednesday, December 18, 2019, President Donald J. Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives on two articles of impeachment.
Not surprisingly, when Vladimir Putin weighed in on the news on Thursday, he sounded very much like a mouthpiece of the Trump White House.
One of Republicans' favorite talking points about impeachment is that Democrats have been trying to impeach Trump ever since he got in office, and that impeachment is just another way of re-litigating the 2016 election.
They also assert that Trump did nothing wrong, neither in 2016 nor on the call with President Zelensky of Ukraine.
"One party that lost the elections, the Democrats, is now trying to find new ways by accusing Trump of collusion with Russia. But then it turns out there was no collusion, this can't be the basis for the impeachment. Now they came up with some pressure on Ukraine.."
People were not surprised.
Some wondered who was following whose talking points.
The puppet master is at it again.
Far-right Fox News host Tucker Carlson routinely rails against legal immigration, against the so-called "socialism" of the left, and against basic respect for people whose phenotype doesn't match his—all under the guise of love for American values.
So it came as a surprise when Carlson said he was supporting Russia in its ongoing aggression towards neighboring Ukraine.
