Trump said that the two had a “very very good meeting” and talked about the ongoing crisis in Syria.


“[W]e want to see the killing, the horrible killing, in Syria stop as soon as possible and everybody is working toward that end,” Trump said, ahead of a separate meeting with former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

Adam Shaw at Fox News reports that Lavrov first met with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, before traveling to the White House and meeting with Trump. The Russian Foreign Ministry tweeted out a picture of the pair, as well as a picture of Trump with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Lavrov’s visit risked being overshadowed by the firing of Comey. As Lavrov met with Tillerson, Democrats continued to express their outrage at the ouster, raising questions as to whether it was connected to the FBI’s current investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 race and Trump campaign officials’ alleged ties to Russia.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., renewed his calls for a special prosecutor to take over the investigation.

“We need to get a bottom of this and get a handle on all the facts,” Schumer said on the Senate floor.

The Trump administration and GOP lawmakers say Comey was fired for other reasons, including his handling of the Clinton email probe.

Tillerson and Lavrov were asked about the Comey firing by reporters at the State Department during the photo opportunity. Tillerson did not respond, but Lavrov chose to engage.

“Was he fired? You are kidding!” he joked.

He praised Trump for trying to build a “business relationship” with Russia, and dismissed claims that Russia was controlling the U.S. as “ridiculous.”

“It’s ridiculous … to think a great country like the United States is being controlled by someone else,” he said.

The Russian is right. It IS ridiculous that these liberal maniacs just can’t let this whole Russian conspiracy thing go.

The good news is that all we have to do is ignore these scumbags. Eventually they’ll get sick of being losers– at least you would think they would but who knows.

Screw them all.
