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.
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.”
