I guess libs will call this collusion
Reporters hounded President Trump during yesterday’s White House press conference about a Monday phone conversation between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, where the two leaders agreed to hold talks about the chaos in the oil market. And in a gesture of goodwill, Russia – which has only recently started to report large numbers of COVID-19 cases – is sending a military transport plane full of “medical equipment and masks” to aid American governors like Andrew Cuomo in their time of need.
Putin offered to send the aid during Monday’s call, while the two leaders discussed how best to respond to the virus, according to Reuters.
Trump’s decision top accept the aid, which was organized by the Russian defense ministry, is likely to be unpopular with the president’s critics who seemingly jump on any sign of warming relations between Trump and Putin, and argue that Moscow uses these shipments as a “propaganda tool”. Some critics even went so far as to speculate that it might be a “spy operation.”
