The Sunday Times of Britain published the following story regarding President Trump meeting with Vladimir Putin early in his administration….
“Donald Trump is planning to hold a summit with Vladimir Putin within weeks of becoming president — emulating Ronald Reagan’s Cold War deal-making in Reykjavik with Mikhail Gorbachev.
Trump and his team have told British officials that their first foreign trip will be a meeting with the Russian leader, with the Icelandic capital in pole position to host the superpower talks as it did three decades ago.
In a bid to reset western relations with the Kremlin, Trump will begin work on a deal limiting nuclear weapons.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
Sources who have discussed the plans with officials at the Russian embassy in London say Moscow is set to agree to a summit between the two leaders.”
The only problem with the story? It’s a myth, a fable, a lie. FAKE NEWS! The Hill repeated the fake news, which it appears they edited. Trump’s Press Secretary corrected the record in the following tweet, declaring the report “100% false.”
