Obama to Trump: Keep Russia sanctions separate from nuclear talks
Roberta Rampton, Jeff Mason, Politico, Jan 18 2017
FASCHINGSTEIN – Obama urged Trump on Wednesday to keep separate the issue of economic sanctions on Russia from the pursuit of talks to reduce nuclear stockpiles. Trump said in an interview with the Times of London published on Monday that he would propose offering to end sanctions on Moscow in return for a nuclear arms reduction deal. Obama imposed the sanctions in 2014 after Russia’s annexation of the Crimea.
Cunt Face Obama told reporters during his final news conference at the White House:
Russia continues to occupy Ukrainian territory and meddle in Ukrainian affairs. I think it would probably best serve not only Pindosi interests but also the interests of preserving the Global ZOG if we made sure that we don’t confuse why these sanctions have been imposed with a whole set of other issues. It is important for us here in Faschingstein to stand up for the basic principle that non-ZOG countries don’t go around and invade and bully smaller countries.
Cunt Face Obama blamed Putin for “escalating anti-Pindosi rhetoric” and resuming a Cold War “adversarial spirit” but said a more “constructive relationship” would be a good goal:
I worked on a nuclear arms control agreement with Moscow that resulted in the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty of 2010. I was prepared to go further. I told Pres Putin I was prepared to go further. They have been unwilling to negotiate. If Pres-elect Trump is able to restart those talks in a serious way, I think there remains a lot of room for our two countries to reduce our stockpiles.
