Trump implies he might need permission from someone to go see Putin's military parade in Russia (VIDEO)
President Donald Trump was invited by Russian President Vladimir Putin to go to his country and personally witness their Victory Day Parade. If he accepts, he will be standing alongside Putin as Russia's military puts on a show for the world.
He was asked about the invitation and whether he would go by reporters on the White House lawn, and he suggested he would have to get permission first. But, by whom?
“President [Vladimir]Putin invited me. It’s a very big deal, celebrating the end of the war, etc., etc. A very big deal. I appreciate the invitation. … It is in the middle of our political season, so I will see if I can do it, but I would love to go if I could.”
First things first: Trump is the President of the United States and there is nothing that would prevent him from going if he wanted to. He suggested he might not be able to for political reasons, but that would imply him asking for permission from his campaign or other leaders in the Republican Party if it's a good idea to do so.
If people are under the impression that Trump isn't being man-handled by anyone then they are severely mistaken. The Trump campaign needs to run the political calculus and if they figure that a Victory Day parade in Russia doesn't hurt his re-election chances, then you can bet on Trump accepting that invitation.
Joe Biden was asked about the possibility of Trump going to Moscow for the May Day parade, and he couldn't believe it.
“You serious?” Biden asked.
“You’re kidding me,” Biden added before sighing asking again “Are you joking?”
