Energy Diplomacy


For John, BLUFThose who say President Trump is in Russia's pocket are either not paying attention or are willing to say anything for political advantage or work for CNN.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




This is Reporter Andrew Malcolm, from Hot Air, posted this morning, 7 July 2017.

Here is the paragraph that explains the headline:

In Warsaw, as Ed Morrissey points out, Trump offered leaders from Poland and numerous other European countries long-term LNG deals to diversify their supplies and avoid creating undesirable political leverage with a certain large country to the East that has not hesitated to cut off natural gas supplies for political reasons.
Law Professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds sums it up nicely.
If Trump were really in Putin’s pocket, he’d be putting the kibosh on this, probably citing bogus environmental concerns.
And with a little snark.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
