In 1962 the Cuban Missile Crisis saw the Soviet Union installing nuclear missiles on Cuba. The world held its collective breath while President John F. Kennedy and Premier Nikita Khrushchev hurled threats. In this faceoff, Kruschev blinked first and finally agreed to order his ships to return to port and removed his missiles. We knew they were the enemy.

Today there is credible evidence to prove, as reported by The Washington Post, that a Trump Tower Moscow was being negotiated before and during the 2016 campaign. Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer and “fixer,” both report having contact with the Russians on Trump’s behalf during the campaign regarding building a Trump Tower Moscow.

The catch was that the monies to be exchanged would have to go through the Russia-owned bank, the VTB, which has been sanctioned by the U.S. So it would be necessary to get those sanctions lifted.

According to an MSNBC report, the plan was to get Trump into office to get those sanctions lifted. It would be worth billions to the Russians and hundreds of millions to Trump’s businesses. Meetings were being held on Trump’s behalf while he was out working the crowds. There have been countless reports of meetings with Russians in Trump Tower.

So, compromise a man, get him into the office of President of the United States, and manipulate him at will.

When Kruschev withdrew his missiles in shame he cried, “We will destroy you from within!” I would submit Russia is doing so some 50 years later.
