When Barack Obama was caught on a hot mic telling Russian President Dmitry Medvedev that “after the election, I’ll have more flexibility”, the mainstream media, for the most part, ignored it.

He was, afterall, Barack Hussein Obama. He was the media darling…he was untouchable.

Today, the same media has spent the better part of the day criticizing President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Even though the left-wing media will never give him credit, President Trump has been far tougher on Russia than his predecessor, Barack Obama.

Fox News reports – The summit came just days after the Justice Department announced the indictments of a dozen Russian intelligence operatives for allegedly hacking Democratic targets in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. At one point in the interview, Wallace tried handing Putin a copy of the indictment. But Putin motioned for him to put the papers on a side table instead.

“First of all, Russia, as a state, has never interfered with the internal affairs of the United States, let alone its elections,” Putin replied.

Putin also denied having “kompromat” — or “compromising material” — on Trump. Earlier Monday, after Putin and Trump’s joint news conference, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California claimed Trump’s “weakness in front of Putin… proves that the Russians have something on the president, personally, financially or politically.” –

During his interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace, Russian President Vladimir Putin revealed some of the key points of his meeting with President Donald J. Trump.

“I think we should be grateful to our staff and our aides who spent several last months working with one another and not just in the preparations of this summit,” Putin said. “I’m referring to the effort of our agencies across the board who worked in even the very sensitive areas, sensitive both for Russia and the United States.”

“Primarily, I refer to the counter-terrorism efforts today, with–talking with President Trump, we agreed that terrorism is a greater threat than it seems at first. Because, God forbid, if something happens, if there is a terrorist attack using the weapons of mass destruction, if they get their hands to weapons of mass destruction, it may have devastating ramifications. And so, our military, our special agencies, do establish cooperation in this particularly important area.”

Vladimir Putin revealed part of his discussion with Trump as it relates to both North Korea and Iran’s nuclear ambitions.

“We also discussed the Iranian nuclear program. We discussed what we can do to improve the situation with North Korea. I’ve pointed out, and I will point out again, that I think that President Trump contributed a lot, that he did a lot to settle this issue.”

“But in order to achieve complete denuclearization of the peninsula it will take international guarantees, and Russia stands ready to make its contribution to the extent that will be necessary. So, we can say that there are several issues of crucial importance for us, this and some others, we are starting to achieve some understanding which gives us sufficient ground to say that some things, a lot of things changed for the better during today’s meeting.”
