Trump's tariffs teach Europe a lesson, Putin says

Putin signs law on countermeasures against US & its allies

"I am convinced that Vladimir Putin has a grip on President Trump", Peters said on CNN Wednesday night, adding that the Steele dossier alleging collusion between the Trump campaign and Russians "rang true to me, because that's how the Russians do things".

Russian President Vladimir Putin has asked Austria's chancellor to organize a meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump in Vienna this summer and the White House is pondering the offer, a senior European official said.

"The introduction of U.S. tariffs on steel, on aluminum, not only for Europe but also for Canada and Mexico, are sanctions disguised in other terms", said Putin, noting that both Donald Trump's recent tariffs, and the long-standing sanctions against Moscow over alleged election meddling and Ukraine, both served to advance "American national interests".

Last month Putin said any retaliation against western sanctions must not hurt the Russian economy or partners that do business in Russia.

The threat of mutually assured destruction helped avoid a nuclear war as it kept nuclear powers from making "abrupt moves and forced them to respect one another", Putin said.

He also noted that the need to get rid of the anti-Russian sanctions is already being publicly discussed in Europe.

Putin said in an interview with the China Media Group that current sanctions against Russian Federation "neither surprise nor scare us".

But Trump's tweet, whether accurate or not, did give other Twitter users the idea of invoking legal scholars in other matters. A Boston Globe report published last month says Trump isn't the author of all his tweets.

"Overall, we are heading in the right direction", he said.

"If they were poisoned by military-grade poison, why did they not die?" he said.

When asked whether a global conflict might break out, Putin quoted legendary physicist Albert Einstein, who once said that while he doesn't know what weapons might be used to wage Third World War, "World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones". We see and understand what is going on in Iraq.

However "the withdrawal of the U.S. from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty was an attempt to break that strategic parity", he added. "We need to build cooperation with the European Union".

'In a recent telephone conversation, Donald said he was anxious about the possibility of a new arms race. "If you put it together with an earlier joke that Russian Federation had influenced the USA election, all in all it sounds quite amusing: We have allegedly meddled with the presidential election in the USA and Trump as a thank you has presented us with Europe".

"Just recently one famous and popular German media outlet wrote that President Trump is pushing Europe into Putin's arms". "Utter idiocy. You can't describe this as anything other than a joke".

"We have no plans to shut anything down", said Putin when asked if social media networks, which are harder to monitor than traditional media, would be blocked in Russian Federation.
