President Donald Trump is set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 16. Even though their bromance has seemed to flourish, MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace wants to know what else President Trump will do to please Putin.
During an interview with MSNBC intelligence analyst Malcolm Nance, Wallace asked: “What is left on Vladimir Putin’s honey-do list that Trump hasn’t done?”
“Well the — the only thing that’s left to do on the wish list is to lift sanctions against Russia,” Nance said.
He continued: “I think he will arbitrarily, straight across the board, in defiance of law, at the end of the Putin-Trump summit, will declare Russia good boys and will say we need to lift the sanctions. I really think he’s in their pocket, you know.”
“I mean, going after NATO is just utterly amazing, because, as you know, NATO is not just paying with their money. They are paying in blood defending alongside of the United States like they did in Afghanistan. Donald Trump doesn’t get that,” Nance said. “He — in his mind, Russia is his base, a critical part of his base, and he’s going to pay them off one way or another.”

‘Pardon will follow in short order’: Experts trounce Trump for announcing Roger Stone has ‘very good chance of exoneration’
President Donald Trump continues to ignore Attorney General Bill Barr's threat of resigning if he continues to tweet about Justice Dept. cases. Barely hours after a judge sentenced the president's longtime confidant Roger Stone to a mere 40 months in jail Trump announced he believes Stone has a "very good chance of exoneration," presumably on appeal – unless he is planning a pardon, which is not exoneration, although Trump apparently does not know that.
How climate change reduced the flow of the Colorado River
The massive Colorado River, which provides water for seven US states, has seen its flow reduced by 20 percent over the course of a century -- and more than half of that loss is due to climate change, according to new research published Thursday.
Two scientists at the US Geological Survey developed a mathematical model of the water movements -- snowfall, rainfall, run-off, evaporation -- in the upper Colorado River basin for the period from 1913 to 2017.
To do so, they used historical temperature and precipitation data, along with satellite readings of radiation, in order to understand how climate change had affected those water movements.
