Donald Trump Jr. Was Just Caught Holding Secret Meetings With Russian Officials

It has become clear President-elect Trump plans to allow his family members a large role in his administration. It was recently uncovered that Trump’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., took part in a secret round of discussions with politicians and diplomats in Paris in relation to the war in Syria. While troubling that Trump is allowing his family members to meddle in international affairs, it was also borderline illegal.
The event was hosted by the Center of Political and Foreign Affairs and its founder Fabien Baussart and his wife Randa Kassis were in attendance. Kassis is a long-standing leader of the Syrian opposition, but she believes in a peaceful political transition. Kassis said of Donald Trump Jr, “I think he’s very pragmatic and is flexible.”
Around thirty people attended the secret talks in Paris in October which focused on finding middle ground with the Russian government to bring a halt to the civil war in Syria, where Russia has backed the Syrian government’s genocidal war against its own citizens for several years. That the enormously unqualified Donald Trump Jr was able to attend the event speaks volumes to the cozy ties the Trump family has to the Russian government, of which President-elect Trump had vehemently denied during the presidential campaign. This is in spite of the fact that President-elect Trump’s credit is so poor in America that he was forced to seek funding outside of the country, and has received financing from numerous Russia creditors.
