The Russian President seems to be aiming his comments at a guy who he once thought he could get over with….
Donald Trump has been fighting strong political headwinds in trying to dance with the Russian President….
That bromance seems to be over….
Between Congress , media and internal pushback?
Trump has been stopped in his tracks from trying to run his own effort to get in bed with Putin….
Now it appears that Putin is trying to one up an American President on the world stage….
Russian President Vladimir Putin gloated Thursday about what he sees as the end of the United States’ world dominance due to growing “mistakes.”
Putin also claimed America holds “some responsibility” for the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi because the Saudi journalist was living in the U.S., he said in annual foreign policy speech, according to the Financial Times. He did not elaborate. Khashoggi has not been seen since he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2. Turkish officials say he was murdered and dismembered by orders of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
“In this regard, the U.S. has a certain responsibility. If someone knows what happens and there was a murder, I hope some evidence is provided. And dependent on that, we will make some decisions,” Putin added in his remarks in the Black Sea resort of Sochi. He said there was currently no reason to “harm our relations with Saudi Arabia.”
As for the U.S., he said that “empires often think they can make some little mistakes … because they’re so powerful. But when the number of these mistakes keeps growing, it reaches a level they cannot sustain.”
He added: “A country can get the sense from impunity that you can do anything. This is the result of the monopoly from a unipolar world … . Luckily this monopoly is disappearing. It’s almost done.”….
Putin throwing back at Trump’s ‘make America Great Again’, eh?
