Body language loud and clear

Turn the sound off on your device and watch the Trump/Putin press conference.

All you need to see is the non-verbal communication between the two to see that Trump (eyes cast down, shoulders slumped, face inexpressive, avoiding eye contact), is second dog to Putin (erect, confident walk, eyes up and alert, aggressive stance, smiling in a cunning manner). Whether he said would or wouldn’t is less important than the fact that President Trump is playing second fiddle to President Putin.
