Trump denies he knows about the Russian-Taliban bounty on US troops



Trump denies he knows about the Russian-Taliban bounty on US troops

President Trump on Sunday flatly denied that he and Vice President Mike Pence had been told of Russian gifts that allegedly paid the Taliban for killing US troops in Afghanistan, supporting the White House earlier claiming that the two were unaware.

“Nobody explained or told me, @VPPence, or Chief of Staff @MarkMeadows about what was called an attack on our forces in Afghanistan by Russia, as reported through anonymous sources by Fake News @nytimes. Everyone denied it & there weren’t many attacks on us, ” Trump posted on Twitter.

“There is nothing tougher in Russia than the Trump Administration. With Corrupt Joe Biden & Obama, Russia has a field day, taking over important parts of Ukraine – Where is Hunter?” Russian tricks are a failure. Who is their ‘source’? “

He asked the newspaper to reveal its source, but added that “‘this person’ might not even exist!”

The New York Times reported about the gift on Friday and claimed the president was made aware of the situation and was discussed at the end of March by the White House National Security Council.

The report said several options were considered – including sanctions and complaints to be made through diplomatic channels – but the White House had not authorized any response. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and National Intelligence Director John Ratcliffe released a statement Saturday that said Trump and Pence had not been briefed.

McEnany’s statement commenting on “the imprecision of the New York Times story erroneously shows that President Trump was briefed on this matter.”

Trump, in his third tweet, criticized how Joe Biden and the Obama administration handled Russian relations.

“It’s funny to see Corrupt Joe Biden reading a statement about Russia, which was clearly written by his handlers. Russia is having lunch and Obama during their tenure is so bad that Obama wants them out of the G8. US. weak in everything, especially Russia! “he said in post.

Biden, a Democratic presidential candidate, criticized Trump on Saturday for failing to protect US troops.

“His entire presidency has been a gift for Putin, but this is out of bounds,” said the former vice president in a virtual city hall, referring to Russian leader Vladimir Putin. “This is a betrayal of the most sacred duty we bear as a nation, to protect and equip our troops when we send them on dangerous paths.”

Former President Barack Obama and other members of the Group of 8 industrialized nations ousted Russia from the association in 2014 after the illegal annexation of Crimea by Putin.

Trump, who is hosting this year’s G7 meeting, has proposed inviting Russia to an expected meeting in September.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
