If anyone wondered whether President Trump would stick the proverbial shiv into Comrade Putin’s vitals, those doubts should disappear immediately. That isn’t granting absolution for his terrible performance at the press conference heard round the world. It’s now possible to think that President Trump missed an opportunity at that press conference and that he just hurt Russia, aka Putin, badly.

Thanks to the preliminary trade agreement President Trump made with the EU, the Kremlin will have far fewer rubles to count in the near future. Everyone knows that what little strength the Russian economy has comes from the exporting of their energy resources, especially to eastern European nations.

The trade deal that President Trump just negotiated with the EU includes expanded trade of liquefied natural gas along with other energy products. Does anyone think that Putin is sitting in his Kremlin office thinking about how grateful he is to President Trump? That’s right. He isn’t thinking that whatsoever. He’s seeing red — and not the red usually associated with the Soviet Union.

It’s now time for President Trump’s critic — and they are legion — to admit that he’s got the economy growing while the economic storm clouds disappear from sight. The doom and gloom predicted by MSNBC, CNN, the NY Times and other parts of the Democrats’ messaging apparatus won’t happen anytime soon. Happy days are here again.

When President Trump held this press conference, he didn’t just deflate Putin:

That being said, when European Union chief Jean-Claude Juncker said “This is also a message to others”, everyone immediately knew he might as well have been talking directly at Putin. This point can’t be overemphasized.

The other people whose crest has fallen since the agreement was reached are the Democrats. Thanks to yesterday’s agreement in principle, there won’t be a recession (or even a slowdown) right before the election. Further, the Democrats have started questioning whether people are feeling like the recovery is real. The blue collar workers building pipelines think it’s real. The people opening up new LNG wells think the Trump recovery is real. Everywhere you look, people are thanking President Trump for putting in place the policies that’ve caused their 401(k)s to grow and their benefits to improve.

This was a silly question from the start. If people thought that the Trump recovery wasn’t real, why is consumer confidence sky-high? Now, thanks to this agreement, farmers will get the relief they need.
