Donald Trump’s second trip overseas as president was just as, if not more, disastrous than his first. This time around, it became apparent that the world is turning its back on Donald, and as a consequence, America. The only thing that was on Donald’s mind throughout the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany was his first private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Tonight, Trump sent a tweet saying that he doesn’t see his proposed U.S.-Russia cyber security unit coming to fruition.
Before sending the following tweet, Trump had tweeted about a ceasefire in Syria:
“The fact that President Putin and I discussed a Cyber Security unit doesn’t mean I think it can happen. It can’t-but a ceasefire can,& did!”

Strangely enough, Trump wants to form a “Cyber Security unit” with the country that hacked the election to help him win. This sounds more like an attempt to make it even easier for Russia to hack future elections through information sharing with the U.S. — mostly information flowing from the U.S. to Russia.
Earlier in the day, Trump promoted an “impenetrable Cyber Security unit” to guard against “election hacking.”
Putin & I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded..

Why did he advertise the unit and later say he doesn’t “think it can happen”?
Twitter became worried:
This is a lot…even for Trump. pic.twitter.com/joVnvuFuNy

What is going on with our president? This tweet completely contradicts earlier tweet. Convene an NSC mtg before tweeting again! https://t.co/QVV6I15v1b

I have no idea what our president is saying. But maybe it was clearer in the original Russian? https://t.co/Cvw8jiKiyO

Trump is basically admitting his own attempts at diplomacy are useless? pic.twitter.com/jfEqzK45uF
