NEW: Trump initiated a call to Putin today. He offered US help to fight forest fires in Siberia, Russia media reports. (Probably didn’t chew Putin out for not raking Russian forest floors.)
🤔I wonder if Russia's tweet openly asking Trump to do its bidding (to get @twitter to unblock Russia's disinformation-spewing Embassy in Syria account) had anything to do with today's phone call to Putin.

ICYMI, yeah, that happened today⬇️
Trump called Putin today. In the midst of a brutal crackdown on dissent not seen in Russia in years, opposition candidates thrown in jail, their supporters beaten. Did Trump mention this horror? Apparently not. But Putin praised his “attentive attitude”👀 #DemDebate #PutinsPuppet
🤔Wildfires in Siberia or wild pretext? Seems more likely Trump called Putin for the same reason Flynn called Kislyak. To warn #sanctions were coming, but not to worry. He'd make sure they wouldn't hurt Russia too much. Trump also concealed it until the Kremlin leaked the call.
WTF kind of POTUS calls Putin about wildfires—but not
—Election interference
—Sanctions for chemical weapon use in UK (Skripal)
—Nuclear weapons INF Treaty
—Americans Whelan, Calvey arrested in Russia
—Ukrainian political prisoners
—Kremlin crackdown on dissent, Navalny poisoning
NEW: Huntsman's days as US Ambassador to Russia are numbered. Trump's phonecall to Putin ostensibly about wildfires in Siberia "drifted into a discussion" of the need for a new ambassador after Huntsman. So, is Putin now having a say in who represents US?? cnn.com/2019/08/02/pol…
