Regarding the historic meeting in Helsinki between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin (which is now referred to as "The Big Stinki in Helsinki"), there were three possible explanations as to why President Trump failed to call-out Putin for interfering in the 2016 presidential election.
- The Russians may have some incriminating info on Trump.
- The President is too worried about the public perception that he stole the 2016 election.
- President Trump simply employed a legitimate deal-making strategy: it was 8-dimensional chess!
