Donald Trump Jr. was reportedly already scheming with Russian sympathizers last month about ways to end the war in Syria. Jay Solomon writes:
Donald Trump ’s eldest son, emerging as a potential envoy for the president-elect, held private discussions with diplomats, businessmen and politicians in Paris last month that focused in part on finding a way to cooperate with Russia to end the war in Syria, according to people who took part in the meetings.
Thirty people, including Donald Trump Jr., attended the Oct. 11 event at the Ritz Paris, which was hosted by a French think tank. The founder of the think tank, Fabien Baussart, and his wife, Randa Kassis, have worked closely with Russia to try to end the conflict.
Ms. Kassis, who was born in Syria, is a leader of a Syrian group endorsed by the Kremlin. The group wants a political transition in Syria—but in cooperation with President Bashar al-Assad, Moscow’s close ally.
So it appears the Trump-Putin alliance had already begun, pre-election. In some ways, this is just confirmation of what seemed plainly obvious during the campaign. What's perhaps most frightening about this is the fact that Donald Trump will be like putty in Putin's hands. God only knows what our nation will be tricked into by Trump's feebleminded admiration of Putin.
