RT: Russian Covid-19 aid plane to US: Putin asked Trump if he needed help & he accepted, Kremlin spokesman says

A cargo plane loaded with medical supplies and protection equipment may depart for the US by the end of Tuesday, the Kremlin said, after a phone call between US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The issue of protective gear was raised during the Monday phone talks, with Putin asking if the US needed help and Trump accepting, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Tuesday.

Moscow suggested the aid in anticipation that the US will be able to return the favor if necessary, once its manufacturers of medical and protective equipment catch up with demand, Peskov said.

The current situation “affects everyone without exception and is of a global nature,” he added.

WNU Editor: This is a reversal of U.S. policy of not accepting aid from Russia. But President Trump appears to not care about this restriction .... ‘Happily surprised’? Trump says Russia sent US ‘very, very large’ aid package to combat Covid-19 (RT). Not everyone is happy with this aid .... ‘This is NUTS!’ Russiagaters see red over Putin’s planeload of corona-aid for Trump, queue to look gift-horse in mouth (RT). As to what is my take. Take the aid. This is a crisis situation right now.

A kind gesture on Putin’s part and a reciprocal gesture for Trump to accept the aid.

/and Trump is perfectly aware of the shrieking by “Russia-gaters”. He’ll happily let them dig themselves another hole.

Isn't Russia going to need this?

There is an expectation in Russia that once America's manufacturing capacity is at full gear to produce medical equipment, the U.S. would reciprocate.

Hmmm...Trump has tried very hard to cultivate good relations with Russia. After all its generally prudent to get along with powerful people. All the while others have gone out of their way to undermine these careful efforts. It seems Trump may have been right after all.

Editor,

That is interesting. This "manufacturing capacity" may need to come from the ground up and their figures to be a significant learning curve as we figure this out. This arena a dubious assumption on the part of the Russians.

I hope and pray we do get this right. If the US could become the go to supplier of medical equipment, we could emerge from this as the most powerful nation in the world. This would be a great thing.

This should not be a difficult decision.

All that aid from America to other countries such as shipment of wheat in bags with USG on it are meant for a purpose.

When we send stuff to Russia we can put the American flag on it. Russia can put the Russian flag on the stuff they send here.

One of the complainers and moaners is Andrew S. Weiss is the James Family Chair and vice president for studies at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. A fellow moaner and complainer is Steve Schmidt, a not so bright guy.

Basically there were two staffers on the John McCain for President campaign back in 2008 that leaked unhelpful information to pliant media like broken sieves. If various accounts are to be believed, these individuals were Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace.

So Weiss is liked by Schmidt who is persona non grata in the Republican Party,m by leadership and base. That takes some doing. Smitty broke with the Republicans over Trump's moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. It is something every president palavers about, but none actually do. Trump did it. Smitty was okay with the actual palavering but not the doing.

I wonder what course Steve failed?

MATH 201 - Introduction to Statistical Methods I (3cr.)
MATH 210 - Discrete Mathematics I (3cr.)
MATH 221 - Calculus I (3cr.)
MATH 222 - Calculus II (3cr.)
MATH 230 - Finite Mathematics with Applications (3cr.)
MATH 241 - Analytic Geometry and Calculus A (4cr.)
MATH 242 - Analytic Geometry and Calculus B (4cr.)

Wack to Weiss. He words for the Endowment for peace. Does he want a war. It is a lot harder to got to war, if the peoples like each other. Foreign aid does just that. Just like China has 800 families, Russia and the US have something similar. I don't trust the lot of them. We not giving the aid to make nice with those families but the people. Those families will sell their own country men sometimes and will certainly treat them as chattel if given a chance. You would think Weiss would be smarter, but he has TDS. However, I think Weiss's character flaws go much deeper than that. I think he is a religious liberal in a cush job that he thinks is his right. Let the air ball criticize.
