Update: Check it out – Evelyn Farkas, the moron who accidentally told the world about the Obama admin unmasking the Trump Team, thinks that Russia is the #1 threat to the US.
But he also thinks #1 threat is terrorism, while the #1 immediate urgent threat to US and Europe is Russia https://t.co/6yAae9074T

Despite negotiating a Syria cease-fire and discussing counterterrorism, Ukraine, election interference, and establishing a “framework” to wage the “fight against cyber crime” during a two hour meeting at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany – the MSM and the rabid left could only focus on how horrible it is that the two Presidents got along – along with sharp criticism over their handshake.
“If each President jerks off with their right hand, they basically touched dicks.” –liberals
The Washington Post wrote an entire article on the handshake – describing each president’s body language like it was a staredown of epic proportions:
Trump and Putin locked hands, pumping slightly, as the U.S. leader brought his other arm up to pat Putin a few times on the forearm. Putin raised his left hand to make a point. It wasn’t clear what the two leaders were talking about. –WaPo
Buried more than halfway through the article, per usual, is the truth:
In the end, the Trump-Putin handshakes appeared to be normal ones between equals, a notable development after many of Trump’s grip-and-grin encounters turned into battles of will.
Of course, WaPo then goes on to describe Trump’s previous handshakes. Because Democracy Dies in Darkness or something like that.
The Daily Express took a shot at the handshake too…

Meanwhile at the adult table
President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin emerged from their two-hour power meeting with an agreement for a cease-fire in southwest Syria. As Bloomberg reports:
“A cease-fire has been entered into,” U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters in Hamburg. Adding that this was the “first indication of the U.S. and Russia being able to work together in Syria.”

After the meeting, President Trump stated “We’ve had some very, very good talks, we are going to have a talk now and obviously that will continue,” Trump added, saying there are hopes of “a lot of very positive things happening.”
Meanwhile, President Putin told Interfax “I had a very lengthy conversation with the President of the United States, there were a lot of issues such as Ukraine, Syria, other problems, some bilateral issues… We again returned to the issues of fighting terrorism and cybersecurity.”
AP also reports that Putin asked Trump for “proof and evidence” of Moscow’s alleged interference in the 2016 election, a charge Russia denies.
According to ZeroHedge – The request was made after Trump confronted Putin about Moscow’s election meddling during their first face-to-face meeting in Germany on Friday, according to Rex Tillerson who was present in the meeting. The secretary of state told reporters afterward that Trump opened the conversation by “raising the concerns of the American people regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election.”
The left, of course, wasn’t satisfied with any of it…
If Trump only raised "Americans concerns about meddling" without promising consequences, he signaled weakness, if not consent, to Putin.

When it comes to anything this White House says about Pres Trump's private meeting with Putin, only a fool would trust without verifying.
