President Trump Notches First Win From the Russia Summit


The Democrats, RINOs, and NeverTrumpers have been very critical of President Trump for his meeting with Vladimir Putin and now that he has won a huge concession from Russia, watch them all become mimes. Russia has agreed to restrain Iran in Syria.

This is not important because of Syria itself but because Iran has been using Syrian territory to arm Hezbollah. But don’t expect them or the media to give the president any credit for this. Instead, they will try to figure out a way to determine this win is really a loss like they have with the unemployment rate and the tax cuts.

This was a huge win. Let’s see what else President Trump has up his sleeve.

As Caroline Glick explained:

The U.S. has a major interest as well in preventing Iran’s Hezbollah forces from deploying in Syria and in Yemen. The U.S. has an interest in preventing Russia from taking over Syria. … [T]he physical deployment of Iranian-controlled forces along the Syrian-Israeli border and the Syrian-Jordanian border all but ensures a major war between Israel and these forces — including Syrian military forces, which are also controlled by Iran. It raises the likelihood of a Jordanian war with these same forces to an unprecedented level.

The Iranian-Israeli war will spread to Lebanon, which is controlled by Iran through Hezbollah. It can easily spread to Gaza as well, given Iran’s sponsorship of the Hamas terror regime that rules the area.

North Korea, Glick added, would also interpret Iranian deployment along the Syrian border as a sign of American weakness, and U.S. allies around the world would once again lose confidence in America’s protection, as they did under President Barack Obama.

But in the days leading up to Helsinki, the Trump administration maneuvered to constrain Russia’s options. The U.S. and Israel, exerting both military force in Syria and diplomatic pressure on Moscow, made clear that Putin would not have a free hand there.

National Security Advisor John Bolton, Glick noted, announced that Trump was scrapping Obama’s policy of allowing Iran free reign within most of Syria, and would seek a new agreement with Russia that would move Iranian troops out of Syria altogether.
