ECLECTIC RANT: Trump — Putin’s Lapdog

On May 3, 2019, Trump spoke to Putin on the telephone for over an hour. Why didn’t Trump warn him not to meddle in the next U.S. election? Because Trump knew that the Russians had interfered in the 2016 presidential election to help him win the election.  

Deep down, Trump also knows that without the that interference, he probably wouldn’t have won the election. That's why election security is such a low priority in this White House.  

Thus, Trump has no incentive except a moral one (morals?) to chastise Putin for the interference as he was and will be a beneficiary. If he said anything at all, it probably was to thank Putin and ask for help in the upcoming presidential election.  

I wonder why Trump has never criticized Putin.
