The Trump-Putin closed door meeting (only translators!) has many interesting aspects. We cover some not-so-obvious one’s here.
1. This was Trump’s big opportunity to make the pitch to Putin to rejoin the West.
2. Putin’s rejection of that overture means more conflict to come.
3. The Helsinki location had great symbolism because it was the venue for an important Summit in 1975.
4. Kissinger participated in the 1975 Summit and would have almost certainly been consulted about this one.
