The President and the ‘Prince of Whales’
Jun 14th, 2019 at 8:15am
 
Trump furiously insists meeting ‘Prince of Whales’ shows he can discuss ‘everything’ with foreign powers


Mr Trump's tweet incorrectly spelling Wales as a sea creature has since been deleted

Donald Trump has issued a bizarre defence of widely condemned comments made in an interview that he would be open to accepting dirt from foreign powers on his political opponents.

In a tweet misspelling Prince Charles’ official title, he wrote that he often met world leaders and was not expected to inform the security services. The tweet has since been deleted.

But the president failed to point out that the furore around his comments centred on his apparent willingness to accept damaging information about a political rival, rather than simply meeting other heads of state for regular diplomatic talks.

“I meet and talk to ‘foreign governments’ every day. I just met with the Queen of England (U.K.), the Prince of Whales, the P.M. of the United Kingdom, the P.M. of Ireland, the President of France and the President of Poland. We talked about ‘Everything!’” Mr Trump tweeted.

“Should I immediately call the FBI about these calls and meetings? How ridiculous! I would never be trusted again. With that being said, my full answer is rarely played by the Fake News Media. They purposely leave out the part that matters.”

The statement follows just after Mr Trump said during an interview with ABC News that he would be open to accepting information on election opponents from Russia or other foreign governments.

Mr Trump, whose 2016 campaign has been under intense scrutiny for repeated contacts with Russia, described the type of information that would be offered to his campaign by foreign governments as “opposition research”. He would only contact the FBI “if I thought there was something wrong.”

“It’s not interference,” Mr Trump said during the interview. “They have information — I think I’d take it.”

Soon after his initial tweets about the Queen on Thursday, Mr Trump began accusing Democrats of likewise taking information from Russian operatives, but provided little context or evidence. The two Democrats he mentioned are involved with congressional investigations into the president.

Mr Trump’s presidency has been dogged with questions about his campaign’s contacts with Russian officials, especially in light of the explosive revelations in the Mueller report that Russian officials undertook a considerable effort to tilt the election towards Mr Trump and away from Hillary Clinton.

That interference worked in several ways, and, while Mr Trump’s campaign was cleared of conspiracy by the Mueller investigation, several high profile instances have emerged showing that the Trump campaign was open to receiving foreign intelligence on Ms Clinton.

The most notable of those instances occurred on 9 June 2016, when three senior members of Mr Trump’s campaign met with five people in Trump Tower, including Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. The meeting was arranged by a long-time acquaintance of Mr Trump’s, Rob Goldstone, who said that the individuals could provide dirt to the campaign.

Donald Trump Jr, Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort were all present during that meeting. They have indicated that the meeting was not fruitful.

You okay with the head of the free world calling Phil the Prince of Whales, Cods?

Seriously?

I know this isn;t a typical royal thread ( i know you love those, the tinted one being a bitch and stuff) but this is little more important.

At least, i think it is.

Mr Trump is the president. The fake media usually post entire transcripts of his meetings if they get them. It's the fake journalists and columnists' freedom to chose which parts they comment on.

Mr Trump has destroyed minutes of all meetings with Putin. The fake media would love to post a transcripts of them.

Oh, get over it. I see spell check changing my words and when they get by me sentences don't always make sense. I see the same thing by those who post here, spell check is just trying to help.
