Military Review

Do you respect me?

Donald Trump's statement about the "disrespect" of Russia to the US authorities made a fuss. Some sources “summed up” Trump’s words, finding that the presidential candidate had responded about Moscow’s disrespect for American power in general. However, this is not quite the case: Trump believes that Moscow does not respect either Mr. Obama or Madame Clinton. But only. From this it is necessary to draw the right conclusion: he, Trump, will come to power - and the Russians will respect him. Clever, you will not say anything.

Do you respect me?

Journalism now consists of half the headlines. Many people (such as are found on the “Military Review”, which is no secret) in reading the press are limited to these very headlines. Others, which are also more than enough, read the title plus a fragment of the announcement. Not interested - stop the car. Marketers often talk about the first seven words of an informational message, for which the attention of a potential reader may turn off if there is no interest in these words.

“Donald Trump accused Russia of contempt of the leaders of the United States” - this is the title! It with RBC.

And here’s another bomb: “Trump: The Russian Federation violated the agreement on Syria, because it does not respect the United States.” It with TASS.

And the third heading is with "IN": “Trump and his team: Russia does not respect the US government, it must be stopped.”

What Trump said about “disrespect” can be found in a small note on the agency’s website. Reuters.

First, the billionaire declared a “breach of the deal” by Russia. It's about a deal with the United States aimed at a cease-fire in Syria.

Secondly, as its author Emily Stephenson points out in a note, Trump said that "the country [Russia] does not respect the leaders of the United States" (... that the country did not respect US leaders). However, these words are not quoted, that is, they represent the very same author's generalization, which is easily used not only in American or Russian, but also in world journalism. This creates a “heated” news, a kind of sensation. Sucked from the finger, of course. But it does not matter: the main thing is to attract more readers to such a news bomb. The task of the media is not to give news at all, but to “make” them, earning high ratings from the public, and at the same time making money on advertising and on a subscription. This is not to mention the propaganda, the tasks to be performed, if you receive state funding.

Did Trump himself speak of disrespect for “US leaders”? Hardly. At least, from his quotations given by Reuters, this does not follow. And what kind of such leaders could we talk about, if among those who came under the “disrespect” of the Russians, Madame Clinton was pleased! Did she US leader? Excuse me, but Mr. Obama has not yet given her the Oval Office!

And now about the content of the material Emily Stevenson (thesis).

The United States this week ceased negotiations with Russia to implement the ceasefire agreement in Syria and accused Moscow of failing to fulfill its obligations under the September treaty. Termination of negotiations leads to a collapse of hopes for a diplomatic solution in Syria.

This is followed by the words of D. Trump. In quotes, i.e. direct speech.

“Russia broke, then bombing, something like that”. And more: “It should end and it should end fast”.

"Russia has violated the agreement, and now they are shooting, they are bombing, something like that." "It must stop, and it must stop quickly."

The following is another Trump statement. The candidate reminded his critics that he had never met with Russian President Putin. In addition, he noted that the Russian leader "does not respect" ("no respect") Obama or Clinton (Obama or Clinton, and the names are given without quotes). All note ends.

TASS has its own version of Mr. Trump’s speeches. It is not borrowed from Reuters. Trump's words were conveyed by a reporter from New York. As he wrote them down, we do not know. Mr. Trump spoke of “disrespect” in Arizona, not in New York. Probably, the words for the TASS news were broadcast from the television. In version TASS Donald Trump's statement is as follows (paragraph quote):

"Russia has violated the Syria peace accords," the billionaire argued, speaking at a meeting with her voters in the city of Prescott Valley (Arizona). “No respect for our country, our leaders.” According to Trump, the Russian leadership "does not respect" neither ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is a Democratic presidential candidate, nor the current head of the Washington administration, Barack Obama. "

In short, the discrepancy is still there. one cannot get away from it - it has spread around the world. It became, if you want, part stories.

It is not surprising that new statements followed the discrepancy. Not from the press, from Trump.

6 October RIA News" with reference to NBC News, quoted fragments of Donald Trump's speech delivered to voters already in Nevada.

According to the billionaire, he does not yet know how the relations between Russia and the United States will develop if he (Trump) is elected president. “They say that I love Putin. I do not like or hate Putin. Let's see how this will work, ”Trump said.

What can you say? Trump, we add, clearly sticks to the neutral line. He cannot say nothing at all about Russia, with which, since Monday, Washington has almost completely stopped bilateral cooperation on the Syrian truce. At the same time, Trump cannot be “condemned” by Putin’s line, as many US politicians have done. It would be contrary to his previous statements, and critics from the camp of democrats would not fail to take advantage of this blunder.

But Trump’s very tricky clarification that Russia is “no respect” to Obama or Clinton, and not the United States in general, should lead voters to the idea that during the time of Trump’s rule, the long-awaited peace is finally coming between the US and Russia. Let it be cold too, but at least not a war.

Madame Clinton, by the way, is also in this “trend.” It slowed down a long time ago with respect to Russia. In recent weeks, she has not heard from harsh criticism of Russia's behavior in the international arena. And the other day, Tim Kane, the vice-presidential candidate from the Democrats, сообщилthat, under President Hillary Clinton, a deal with the Russians, albeit a tough one, is entirely possible.

Such a tacking behavior of both candidates is understandable: both are acting in line with the “opposition” to Obama. Mr. President demonstrates on the foreign policy front a very inflexible and, one can say, unsuccessful approach, as a result of which the situation in Syria has become extremely complicated - to the extent that other experts are already talking about the impending nuclear war between the United States and Russia.

          It makes no difference that the grandmother that Trump - one hell.
          In any case, the Anglo-Saxons will bend their line to destroy Russia as a world Power.
          They will justify their actions according to the situation.
          One hundred years ago, the imperial ambitions of Russia, then communism, then Ukraine, now Syria - all these are threats sucked from the finger.

          Look back, after all, the Americans managed to drag the whole world into their elected company. And us too. Only those who cannot write and speak remained aloof from this process.

          It's time to score on their choice and live your life.
          His interests need to be defended with the Negro, with Trump, with the grandmother.

        Yes, all politics is a solid business. What is our State Duma worth? The first gathering is 100% turnout. All showed up. The new ones will be present for a couple of months, then they will also disappear from the meetings. When they grind. And this is for many years. drinks By the way, we also have prosecutors from the Crimea. So far without an office. Sadness.

    When I was a student at our university there was one smart aunt, Latin taught us. So she always told us that translation is the tenth thing, we need to understand what this is about in the original text. Here is the same situation: someone read something, gave his opinion in the right perspective, raised a wave and earned some kind of political or quite a money-capitalist. Another body interpreted Trump's statements in his own way, but the truth was in the completely third version. The only trouble is that with the knowledge of languages ​​the masses are not very good.

    By and large, it does not matter who and how interpreted the words of Trump. Another thing is important - the gap in relations between the United States and Russia is currently not visible. Well, maybe a little click has remained.

    Well, they are in one well-known place! Well, the candidate of some country there blurted out some kind of stupidity, so what? It is there they consider themselves exceptional, and for us it is just a country, one of many on planet Earth, except perhaps more arrogant and with a complete lack of conscience among the leadership and elites. So it must be weaned from the role of the world hegemon, indicate its place (alphabetically)

    (Yes, and what kind of leaders could be discussed, if among those who fell under the “disrespect” of the Russians, Madame Clinton pleased!)

    Oleg, Madame Billary has never been on the Russian lists of "respected politicians", but only in the register of "talkers" and then somewhere at the bottom of the list. Only those who do something meaningful, positive for the world or at least for their country are respected. And talkers-declarants after a minimum of time begin to ridicule and openly despise. People in the bulk are smart and know how to distinguish a "politician-creator" from a "talker-demagogue."
