US President #Donald Trump has met with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris, one week after he met with Russian President #vladimir putin at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. Following his meeting with Macron, there was a press conference during which Trump discussed his meeting with Putin. #Russia was already a part of the line of questioning, thanks to the recent situation with Donald Trump, Jr. and his dealings with Russia.

Trump and Putin making strides in Syria

One of the biggest issues with Putin is that he is in cahoots with Syrian President Bashir al-Assad. Trump is very anti-Assad, having blown the hell out of his air force with ballistic missiles back when he used chemical weapons to kill a lot of his own people.

Apparently the meeting between Trump and Putin led to a ceasefire in a little section of the south of Syria, and Trump said that they’re working on getting “a second ceasefire” to take place in “a very rough part of Syria.”

This is good news, right? Trump also added that this is on the right trajectory. He hinted that he and Putin are going to get other parties involved and keep the ceasefires rolling and eventually, according to the US President, “you will have no bullets fired in Syria.” Fingers crossed!
