To the shock of no one, President Donald Trump spent his first White House news conference Friday talking about America’s side bae: Russia. That’s right, everyone, the president hasn’t been cozying up with Russia President Vladimir Putin for nothing; he’s looking to continue dating Russia, Trump announced during the joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May.


Trump was clear that he’s willing to get closer to Russia and noted that it was too early to talk about lifting sanctions placed on cousin Putin’s country by former President Barack Obama.

“We’ll see what happens,” Trump said of the call, CNN reports.

“We’re looking to have a great relationship with all countries,” Trump said. “If we can have a great relationship with Russia and China and all countries, I’m all for that.”


Trump also added that he’d spoken with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto on Friday and said that the call was “very, very friendly.” Surprising, since both men have been in an old-fashioned standoff over who’s footing the bill for the wall that racism wants. Also, let’s not forget that when Peña Nieto continued his crazy stance of, “You want to build a wall, then you should pay for it,” Trump issued a 20 percent import tax on Mexican goods.

“Mexico with the United States has out-negotiated us and beat us to a pulp through our past leaders,” Trump said during his press conference Friday. “They have made us look foolish.

“We’re no longer going to be the country that doesn’t know what it’s doing,” Trump added. (He might as well have added, “I have no fucking clue what I’m doing.”)

Trump made sure he announced that America’s main bae is still the United Kingdom, hailing the “special relationship” between the two countries and adding that the bond “has been one of the great forces of history.”


“Our relationship has never been stronger,” Trump said, CNN reports.
