President Trump slammed the mainstream media and politicians on both sides of the aisle over his recent summit in Helsinki Tuesday morning; blasting his opponents for “ignoring” the money he raised from NATO member states and his “successful” meeting with Vladimir Putin.
The Commander-in-Chief hailed the historic negotiations on social media just hours after jetting back to the nation’s capital, firmly stating that the “fake news is going crazy.”
“I had a great meeting with NATO. They have paid $33 Billion more and will pay hundreds of Billions of Dollars more in the future, only because of me. NATO was weak, but now it is strong again (bad for Russia). The media only says I was rude to leaders, never mentions the money!” said the President.
“While I had a great meeting with NATO, raising vast amounts of money, I had an even better meeting with Vladimir Putin of Russia. Sadly, it is not being reported that way – the Fake News is going Crazy!” he added.

HELSINKI HUDDLE: Trump and Putin Meet Face-to-Face in Historic Summit
President Trump met Russian President Vladimir Putin behind closed doors in Helsinki Monday; discussing a wide range of issues including Syria, terrorism, and allegations of Kremlin-influenced meddling during the 2016 race for the White House.
According to Fox News, the two leaders huddled in Finland as the President predicted an “extraordinary relationship” with Putin.
“I think we will end up having an extraordinary relationship,” Trump said, sitting next to Putin at the presidential palace in Helsinki. “Getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing.”
“The president met with Putin after sparring for the better part of the past week with traditional U.S. allies — first with NATO nations over their levels of defense spending, and later with British Prime Minister Theresa May over her ‘Brexit’ strategy, though he seemed to patch things up before leaving London,” writes Fox.
The meeting comes just days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced a new string of indictments against 12 Russian agents over their “hacking” of the 2016 race.

HANNITY IN HELSINKI: The Left Can't Keep Up With the 'Speed of Trump'
Speaking during his opening monologue from Helsinki Monday, Hannity slammed the mainstream media’s full-fledged assault on President Trump; saying they simply can’t keep up with the President as he “moves at the speed of Trump.”
“President Trump is just not slowing down, and some people in the media are having a hard time dealing with the fact that he moves so fast; moving at the speed of Trump. This was the President’s 21st visit to a foreign country in just 18 months,” said Sean.
“After today’s one-on-one meeting with Vladimir Putin, the two leaders held a joint press conference,” he added. “The meeting comes just days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the indictments of twelve Russian agents who were accused of hacking the DNC.”
“Many on the left want you to believe this alleged interference is a shocking turn of events, but we all know Russian election meddling isn’t new at all,” said Sean.
