President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin met for the first time since Trump was elected president of the United States. The two world leaders politely shook hands on Thursday, July 7, at the opening of the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

World leaders are meeting in Hamburg July 7-8 to discuss major topics, including climate change and immigration.

President Donald Trump, 2nd fr left, shares a laugh with French President Emmanuel Macron (far left) as they join other G20 leaders, including Putin, far right, for the family photo during the G20 summit.

The Democrats (and their allies in the liberal media) have backed away from unfounded allegations that Putin somehow interfered in the 2016 elections.

A special prosecutor is still investigating the so-called “collusion” between Russia and Trump’s campaign.

The White House denied any agenda for the meeting between the two presidents in Hamburg. Though the Kremlin stated there will be a “seated meeting” between the two men today that is expected to last 15 minutes.

  • Junkanoo

    Trumps wife tweeted she’s trapped in the hotel tough tits were trapped with her insane husband for 3 and a half more years. Those protesters are tearing up the place .

  • hottlanta

    Wow this time no pushing and shoving to be in front of the line for the preschool picture. I guess this time he ACTED Presidential. ROTFLMAO when folks are sitting back waiting on him to finally act like a President. Dump like running for President he doesn’t like being President. He was smiling and glowing when he saw those people bussed in to uplift his ego.
    Thought he was gonna cry.

  • hottlanta

    The memes gonna be off the chain for that one. I was ROTFLMAO when I heard that all of the hotels were sold out. I been an AA for years and that is the first thing you do when the boss travels. If this was the Obama administration Dump would be sending all kinds of tweets.

  • Scromes1212

    Guess the media is done with the Russian case that was about to blow the lid off everything lol smh there going to try and block everything Trump does from here on out. Won’t matter if it’s good or bad. Smh

  • AJ

    The write-up is essentially not important, if they have met in the past.

  • hottlanta

    You know Putin told him one wrong move and I will present those “golden showers” tapes. You might have played with Comey about some tapes but I got the real deal.

  • Judas & GOD

    first I was mad at Sandra then I was think about Chrisette Michele situation. make sense Sandra is on Donald payroll she need to eat ..I forgive you!

  • hottlanta

    No ma am it is still own and popping. It has only just begun. Dump didn’t publically say before the whole world that Russia interfered in the election. You got Flynn, Page, Manafort, Nunnes and the list is getting longer. Rachel was point as usual last night and I know she is gonna be popping tonight.

  • Scromes1212

    1. I’m a man lol number 2. Rachel is probably more bias then Bill Oreilly smh 3. They have talked to all those people and still have nothing smh you up late nights drinking wine listening to Rachel make up right wing conspiracy theories smh sad.

  • Junkanoo

    A comedy of errors ……

  • hottlanta

    So Rachel is fake news while Alex Jones of Infowars and Fox kissing dump butt 24/7 is real news. Even though the NYT printed a full page of his lies you still trust him. I guess Flynn asking for immunity is fake. I guess they hired those real lawyers are fake as well. Where is Giuliani. He was alllll over Dump and now it has gotten hot in the kitchen he haven’t been found anywhere to explain him why he was on the air cackling about an “October Surprise” and we got something up our sleeve. Everyone is lying on a man who has a printed page of lies. This whole thing is go away if he just explain why did he tell Russia to hack Hillary’s email when he told the bold face lie he didn’t know anything about hacked emails until he became President. We wanna know how much did he truly love WikiLeaks. Those are his own words not the fake news claim coming from a fake President.

  • Scromes1212

    I don’t follow Alex jones lol or Fox News so we agree on that. But Flynn asking for immunity has to do with him trying to save himself, not Trump. When October comes and goes will you finally give this up? lol how long is a long enough investigation? At what point do the American people move on? If it’s found that he had nothing to do with it then will you try and help your president make positive change?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Maybe she meant first time this year?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Exactly. Where there’s smoke there’s usually fire. Trump and the people around him have created so much smoke, it would be a dereliction of duty if the FBI and Congress didn’t look into it.

    These right-wingers are the biggest hypocrites, because we all know if this was President Hillary Clinton with all this smoke around her, they would have been calling for her impeachment months ago.

  • T865!

    Only an idiot thinks this is their first time meeting?

  • hottlanta

    Hilary was found not guilty though her various investigations and Dump and his crew ain’t gonna let it go and yall expect for us to ignore this. No ma am. This is what Rachel reported last night.

    In a new twist on the debate over leaks to the press, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow claimed Thursday that one such leak was essentially unverifiable—and may have been meant to discredit her program. During her show Thursday night, Maddow claimed documents she had received appeared to be a “cut-and-paste forgery” of those leaker Reality Winner gave to The Intercept for its June 5 report that offered details about the NSA’s findings regarding Russia’s hacking of last year’s election. Maddow claimed the documents alluded to Trump-Russia collusion during the election.

    “We believe now that the real story we have stumbled upon here is that somebody out there is shopping carefully forged documents to try to discredit news agencies reporting on the Russian attack on our election,” Maddow said, according to Mediaite. “And specifically on the possibility that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russians in mounting that attack.”

  • hottlanta

    Why is he talking about Podesta responsible for the DNC sever overseas as to blame him for the hacking and he wasn’t even over the DNC. I was ROTFLMAO when he said NBC should say good things about him because his Apprentice show was on their network as if he saved them from despair and they shouldn’t say anything negative about him. They “OWE” him. But even if you report something he said and it was a lie dumpsters still get mad at you. Unbelievable.

  • hottlanta

    Yep when I saw that confederate flag waving during his rally in Poland that said it all for me.

  • Scromes1212

    Smh Racheal is using you for ratings lol just ask CNN. Every night on her show she has some breaking news smh her show is ridiculous. It’s the liberals version of The Oreilly factor. Nobody cares about Hillary cause she is basically a nobody. She is the most famous “long suffering wife” in the history of the United States. Only reason she still in the news is ratings. No one cares smh

  • hottlanta

    Just like Dump sending her his tax returns for 2005 to make a fool outta her instead it backfired that he had to file taxes that year so his non-citizen immigrant wife could become a legal U.S. Citizen. How is Dump gonna hate immigrants when he married one. Trying to stop grandparents from coming over when he has grandparents living in the White House. It was hurtful to watch the President yesterday who didn’t know accurately how many security agencies we have. Every time I just try to listen to him give a speech I be thinking it is a SNL skit. If no one cared about Hilary why is the do nothing Republicans just the other day was trying to be smart in submitting a ad saying where was your plan for healthcare since they didn’t have one. They got busted big time. They always fall on Hilary when they have nothing else but yet quick to remind us they won the election each time we talk about Hilary.

  • Evillene

    There is a special prosecutor named Robert Mueller who will not stop digging until he strikes gold. It’s no longer politics, now it’s personal. Drumpf stood on an international stage and still refused to acknowledge or condemn known proven Russian interference with our election. He has maligned and impugned the integrity of the entire U.S. Intelligence infrastructure. Blood will be spilled.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    Fly, I clicked on your link and got caught on another site which I thought was still @Sandra Rose. Man there is a lot of hatred and racism on that link. It’s a shame but Hell is going to be full of racists.

  • Fly By Day and Night

    Yea, that’s worldstar. WS and TMZ discussion boards are a war zone. Folks jus mad 24/7

  • Ms.Vanilla

    This is strange but I loved Trump on “The Apprentice”. I thought he was a fair and trustworthy employer. I kinda had a crush on him. Now that he is president, that’s all out the window.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    True. It’s really sad if you think about it. I would never give anything that much power over my mind.

  • hottlanta

    Still laughing how on the 4th of July when the NPR tweeted the Declaration of Independence and the Dump supporters lost their draws thinking they were dogging Dump. The NPR does that everyday for the 4th but this is the first time they tweeted it. Yep when he said he love the uneducated he knew what he was talking about. They just proved even though it ain’t about Dump they think/make it is about him. They quick to say someone is spewing hate and lies when he is the one starting spewing hate and lies on everyone else. Yep the truth is fixing to come out on all of this fake news.

  • January Jones

    This isn’t the first time. Get your facts straight.

  • Luvn_it

    Sandra your headline and post just straight contradicted itself. First you say they’re meeting for the first time which we all know is a lie,than you turn around in say in the post since trump was elected president .

  • pure_rachet

    Omg. Lmao.

  • Mrs. ??????????

    Trump and Putin meet for the first time publicly.

  • Ms.Vanilla

    I know right! I wanted him to be my baby daddy….lol

  • samuel severino

    Yet you are probably one of idiots that thinks that Russia and Trump colluded to steal our election.
    Even though we are now going on almost a year of this nonsense with no proof whatsoever.

  • samuel severino

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA Rachel Maddow is your source?!!
    From the network whose ratings keep falling ever since it has been revealed that they are making stuff up? From the lady who tried to get everyone worked up over Trump’s tax returns only to admit that there was nothing there?
    The network who is going to merge w AT&T and has already said that they are going to fire the president Jeff Zucker because they don’t like the direction he has taken CNN?
    Just look up “Rachel Maddow retractions” because that will keep you busy for awhile.
    Rachel Maddow is your source. GTFOH.

  • samuel severino

    The fact that you mentioned Robert Mueller as your special prosecutor shows that you are ill informed.
    Are we talking about the same Robert Mueller whose first 4 hires for this prosecution were all friends of Hillary, including himself?
    The same Mueller who hired 4 people that directly donated to the Clinton foundation?
    The same Mueller who first 4 hires all campaigned for Hillary and are lifelong friends of Bill and Hillary??!!
    I am quite sure that he is going to be impartial.

  • samuel severino

    Let them keep digging. They will find nothing. They have been looking since July of last year. The same month that Obama approached FISA for legal permission to spy on Trump and was turned down. Never mind the fact that they were illegally spying on Trump for years.

    But don’t let the facts get in the way of your BS position.

  • samuel severino

    The more you post, the more you expose yourself.

    1) Fox is not in bed or “a.s kissers of Trump. Only 2 shows really have Trumps back, Hannity & Tucker Carlson. The new owners ran off Roger Aisles over lies, did the same with O’Reilly and tried it with Hannity but it didn’t work. Fox covers Trump begrudgingly as the majority of them are Republican Elites; the type like Ryan, Priebus, McCain et. al that hate Trump.

    After this it is almost to keep smacking you down because you clearly get your wrong info from biased sources. At least I am a Registered Independent and do my own accurate research because both parties are screwed up.

  • hottlanta

    Obama didn’t order the FISA on Trump but Trump Tower was spied on they found some Russians in room 63A for money laundering. Let’ sdiscuss the Dump service tied to a Russian Bank since about Hilary it was all about a server. Don’t nobody have to spy on Dump he will tell on himself.

  • samuel severino

    Really really waiting for proof that “Trump hates immigrants.” You won’t find any but don’t worry, I will wait.

    He enforced a ban that Obama started and nowhere in the document does it say anything about Muslims or hatred. It says we will slow down the influx until we have fully inspected the backgrounds which is a very rational and sagacious thing to do. (I will also wait while you look those words up.)

    I have traveled to at least 9 countries that require a visa and every time had to send my passport at least 2 months in advance so they could research background. Standard procedures and I did not accuse those countries of hating, racism or classism. I just accepted it as the way things were.

  • hottlanta

    Dump gave money to the Clinton Foundation even invited them to his 3rd wedding. He even said they were good people and now because someone donated to their campaign they are bad people. If that was the case Dump shouldn’t be President because of his association with the Clinton’s he is tooooo connected.

  • hottlanta

    He got people who don’t know any better is that the vetting process right now takes 2 years. They can’t just pick up a bag, get a ticket to come over here in a day. Obama strengthen the vetting process to those areas because some of them had gone to other countries. That is what Obama started. Just had to throw you travel in there as if you are the only one the board who has a passport. Wow you travel must be nice being in the military, If it wasn’t for that you wouldn’t be able to travel to 9 countries. So your 2 months got nothing on someone vetting process for 2 years. DUHHH!!!!!!

  • hottlanta

    Aisles and O’Reilly women grabbers and you mad about that. That female Judge hate Hilary because she spanked that behind in an election in New York. I look at all of the news sources to form my opinion and when Dump opens his mouth he makes it clear who he is and what he is about without me having to watch the news. Why are people protesting the other day when he signed a Red Lobster folder to overturn the ruling by Obama to not to use certain pesticides on food. They haters as well.

  • starbright9449

    Trump looking at his Boss admirably while shaking his hand and wishing he could more than just shake his hand.

  • samuel severino

    Wrong.
    Obama asked for an extremely broad warrant to spy on Trump and was turned down in July.
    He went back 3 mos later with a narrower and more focused request and FISA granted it to him.

    Again, don’t let the facts get in the way. I can prove everything I say. You can’t. Nowhere can you link actual proof of money laundering where I can give you the FISA warrant court document number in seconds.

  • hottlanta

    Putin trying to get those swanky Russian compounds back that Barak threw them out of when he learned of the Russian hacking. Sent them home at Xmas time, gave them 24 hours to leave and locked 4 of them up in jail. Put them on the FBI wanted poster and all.. That was cold. Yet people want more proof. Get’s no betta than that.

  • hottlanta

    You don’t think it is strange for the Commerce Secretary to purchase a 100 million dollar home from Dump and now he is an elected official. Real estate is a money launder’s dream. Inflate the price get the money and keep it moving. In order to request a warrant they have to have reason to believe a crime has been or is being committed. Why you mad about the request of a warrant instead of the reason one might be needed. So I am suppose to believe your fake document is real?

  • dontgetblocked

    Anyone who thinks President Trump is friends with Putin is an idiot. You know nothing about the cold war or America’s history with Russia. Trump is an 80s man and Reagan supporter. Believe you me…one thing about white Republicans is they love this country. They will die for it and send their kids to war…well the poor ones go to war willingly. No white American President is crawling in bed with Russia.

  • dontgetblocked

    Why? He knows what he’s doing. After all, he shocked everyone and won the election.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    If they aren’t friends then why is the Trump White House lobbying the House to soften the Russian sanctions imposed by the Senate?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Why are so desperate to put a time limit on this investigation?

    Were you this insistent that Republicans wrap of their investigations into Benghazi that just happen to last four years through last summer derailing Hillary’s campaign to become president?

    Did Republicans help President Obama make a change for the better during his entire eight years in office?

    Democrats are getting Trump what Republicans gave Obama.

    Now deal with it.

  • hottlanta

    Sat up and saw that boy scout meeting between Dump and Putin. ROTFLMAO when Russia straighten out Tillerson comment that they had a long discussion and said Dump accepted his short answer that he didn’t do the hacking and they moved on. I guess is fake news as well. Even saw Putin discuss our media as insulting Dump and Dump made a comment as if yeah they are getting on my nerves. Of course Tillerson wants to move on from the investigation because he got some of that ole skool Russia oil/Exxon money and also got Russia’s highest medal of freedom so to expect him to encourage an investigation will be crazy. Neither one of the have our interest at heart. When I heard Podesta call in concerning Dump’s tweet I said the man just keep telling lies on the Democrats about Russia and won’t even say Mitch McConnell nor his other Republicans said not to alert the public about the hacking after they were briefed by the Obama administration. Dump was even briefed on the hackings as well and don’t want to admit that he was. Dump is gonna try to quietly remove those sanctions within 6 months. Putin even said he wants proof of Russia’s hacking. Dump got played. Go back and read the documents Barak gave you before he left office as to why he put sanctions on Russia.

    You are the idiot. If anybody doesn’t know what they are talking about it’s your stupid a$$. It is plain to see Dump is kissing Putin’s butt because he has something on Dump. White Republications don’t even give a dam about you and you are on this site trying to defend Dump and the Republicans to us.

  • wiseone

    I’m still shocked, not because he won the election. I’m shocked because I knew he was stupid – he is even dumber than I thought he was.

  • wiseone

    The proof is coming. Dump Jr. lied about meeting with anybody from Russia now it has been announced that he met with somebody in Russia who arranged the meeting with him because she said she had damaging information about Hillary. Little by little it’s coming out. When it’s all over and the facts come out maybe you dumbsters will stop being in denial.
