The world is still reeling from the bizarre series of events that have taken place over the last week in regards to Russia and the United States, and now, Donald Trump is stoking the fires once again.

Just days ago, US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin met in Helsinki, Finland at a summit tainted by the recent indictments of 12 Kremlin agents by Rod Rosenstein, the US Deputy Attorney General.  Rosenstein was acting on behalf of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who has been mired in an absurd witch hunt that seeks to see Donald Trump deposed.

At the meeting between Trump and Putin, the US Commander in Chief irked both the intelligence community and a great many Americans by refuting the Special Counsel’s indictments and insinuating that Putin’s word may have meant a great deal to him.

Now, in a statement that came within stunning proximity to the Helsinki debacle, the President has announced that he is inviting Vladimir Putin to the White House.

President Donald Trump has instructed National Security Adviser John Bolton to invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to Washington this fall and “discussions are already underway,” according to a tweet from White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The invitation comes just days after the president met the Russian leader in Helsinki and drew sharp bipartisan criticism for refusing to publicly confront Putin about Russian interference in the 2016 election during their press conference — and for casting doubt on the conclusion of the U.S. intelligence community that Putin had ordered it.

And it came just hours after Sanders issued a statement that the president, facing a political backlash from Republicans as well as Democrats, now “disagrees” with Putin’s proposal that Russian investigators be allowed to questions Americans, including former U.S. ambassador to Moscow Michael McFaul.

The fallout from this decision will likely continue to grow throughout the day, as concerns within the mainstream media multiply and meander about the political landscape.
