‘Crimea is ours, Trump is ours!’ Russian state TV celebrates president standing up for Putin at G7

Published

on

A news program on Russia’s state television network celebrated this week after seeing a report about President Donald Trump standing up for Russian interests at last week’s G7 meeting in Quebec.

Julia Davis, who runs the Russian Media Monitor website, reports via Twitter that Russian TV show host Olga Skabeeva and her colleagues this week were very happy to see a report from BuzzFeed News about President Donald Trump telling G7 leaders that Russia should be allowed to annex Crimea on the basis that the majority of people in that province speak Russian.

The argument that Crimea should belong to Russia because most of its citizens speak Russian is an argument that has been frequently used by Putin as a justification for its annexation.

What’s more, Trump reportedly asked the G7 leaders why they were so insistent on standing up for Ukraine, which he described as “one of the most corrupt countries in the world.”

Skabeeva and co-host Evgeny Popov relayed this news excitedly to their audience, and they clearly approved of Trump’s actions.

“Krym nash, Trump nash!” Skabeeva says jubilantly at the end of the show, which in English translates to “Crimea is ours, Trump is ours!”

An end to freedom of movement could also spell anguish for some of the 3.5 million EU citizens living in Britain and the around 1.2 million Britons living in other EU countries.

Following is a summary of the preparations taken by various EU members:

Running a clip of the former vice president firing back at Trump and telling reporters they need to ask the right questions, host Philip Mena asked Liberty Government Affairs founder Brian Darling what he thought of Biden pushing back.

Making an appearance at a Republican Party dinner in Columbus, Ohio, Kellyanne Conway accused Democratic voters of being "racist and sexist," in a diatribe as she tried to boost the fortunes of her boss, President Donald Trump.

According to a report from Cincinnati.com, Conway attacked the leading Democratic presidential nominees before making her claim.

“Their top three candidates are white, career politicians in their 60s and 70s, which I have nothing against except they (Democrats) certainly do,” Conway reportedly told the crowd. “I don’t know why the heck the Democratic party electorate is so racist and sexist. I can’t figure it out.”
