Russian news commentators reporting Trump “sooner or later will be defeated by a Democrat and Russia will need to offer Donald John Trump asylum to prevent his being prosecuted and jailed.

The official picture of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov posed standing slightly behind President Trump sitting at his Oval Office desk looking like the power behind the throne has not escaped Russia’s propagandists.
Vesti Nedeli, a Russian Sunday news show, pointed out that it was President Trump, personally, who asked Lavrov for that exact pose. Further, that this occurred while Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is still waiting for that critical White House meeting with the American president. Apparently, since Zelensky never announced the investigation intended to smear Democratic Presidential challenger former VP Joe Biden, no meeting has been set.
Russian media is having a field day with narratives intended to be humorous on American president’s bleak prospects if he is not re-elected and leaves the office. They have steadily made light of Trump’s the impending impeachment, insisting he will not be removed from office and have pushed the reality that everything taking place in U.S. politics is hurrying relations between the U.S. and Ukraine
Mikhail Gusman, Russia’s first deputy director-general of ITAR-TASS, Russia’s oldest and largest news agency, predicted on Russian TV in an interview…
“Sooner or later, the Democrats will come back into power. The next term or the term after that, it doesn’t matter... I have an even more unpleasant forecast for Trump. After the White House, he will face a very unhappy period.”
The shows host Vladimir Soloviev, then asked half laughing over the danger facing Trump if he isn’t re-elected…
“Should we get another apartment in Rostov ready?”
Soloviev was drawing a parallel to the former Russian backed Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who was forced to flee to Russia in 2014 and settled in the city of Rostov-on-Don to prevent his capture and trial for being a Russian installed crony. The irony of both Trump and Yanukovych both had employed Paul Manafort, a convicted felon serving several years in federal prison is not escaping the Russian media’s attention. That is because Russian foreign affairs experts consider both Trump and Yanukovych to be openly pro-Kremlin.
Valery Korovin, director of the Center for Geopolitical Expertise, appearing on the state-television channel Rossiya-24 argued…
“There are no disagreements or contradictions between Trump and Russia.”
Russian media is bragging that President Trump doesn’t care about Ukraine and gave Putin no reason to even consider any concessions to Ukraine in the run-up or aftermath of the recent Normandy Four summit in Paris.
The Russian State news media has been at every opportunity trying to demoralize the Ukrainians with talking points based on the U.S. president’s distaste for their beleaguered country.
