So, body language experts, go ahead and draw your conclusions.
In a “pool spray” for reporters just before beginning a one-on-one meeting with only translators present, President Trump spoke optimistically about the U.S. relationship with Russia, continuing his line that it would be best for an improvement
“We have not been getting along well for the last number of years,” Trump said. “But I think we will end up having an extraordinary relationship . . . I really think the world wants to see us get along.”
Early Monday, Trump tweeted that the U.S. relationship with Russia has never been worse.
Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!
