Trump a Soviet Agent long before he became Russia’s man in America – New Report

Trump was cultivated as a Russian asset over four decades and he recalled Soviet celebrations at Trump’s willingness to regurgitate anti-Western propaganda.


Daily Beast: Donald Trump was relentlessly flattered by KGB operatives during a trip to Russia in 1987—and they suggested that he should go into politics with the aim of becoming U.S president, according to a former Soviet spy.

Trump, capitalist to many, was and is a 100% Marxist, dedicated to bringing down the United States, according to this high level source.

Yuri Shvets, who was posted to Washington by the Soviet Union in the 1980s, spoke to The Guardian to publicize American Kompromat, a new book by journalist Craig Unger, who used Shvets as a key source. Shvets told the newspaper that Trump was cultivated as a Russian asset over four decades and he recalled Soviet celebrations at Trump’s willingness to regurgitate anti-Western propaganda.

In 1987, when Trump and first wife Ivana visited Moscow and St Petersburg for the first time, Shvets said KGB operatives went on a “charm offensive,” explaining: “They played the game as if they were immensely impressed by his personality and believed this is the guy who should be the president of the United States one day.” Shvets said the KGB viewed its wooing of Trump as a “big achievement.”

From The Guardian:

Unger describes how Trump first appeared on the Russians’ radar in 1977 when he married his first wife, Ivana Zelnickova, a Czech model. Trump became the target of a spying operation overseen by Czechoslovakia’s intelligence service in cooperation with the KGB.

Three years later Trump opened his first big property development, the Grand Hyatt New York hotel near Grand Central station. Trump bought 200 television sets for the hotel from Semyon Kislin, a Soviet émigré who co-owned Joy-Lud electronics on Fifth Avenue.

According to Shvets, Joy-Lud was controlled by the KGB and Kislin worked as a so-called “spotter agent” who identified Trump, a young businessman on the rise, as a potential asset. Kislin denies that he had a relationship with the KGB.

Soon after he returned to the US, Trump began exploring a run for the Republican nomination for president and even held a campaign rally in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

On 1 September, he took out a full-page advert in the New York Times, Washington Post and Boston Globe headlined: “There’s nothing wrong with America’s Foreign Defense Policy that a little backbone can’t cure.”

The ad offered some highly unorthodox opinions in Ronald Reagan’s cold war America, accusing ally Japan of exploiting the US and expressing scepticism about US participation in Nato. It took the form of an open letter to the American people “on why America should stop paying to defend countries that can afford to defend themselves”.

The bizarre intervention was cause for astonishment and jubilation in Russia. A few days later Shvets, who had returned home by now, was at the headquarters of the KGB’s first chief directorate in Yasenevo when he received a cable celebrating the ad as a successful “active measure” executed by a new KGB asset.  read more…

  1. Reminds of a 2016 meme of Trump partying with the Clintons:

    With the font/style of NWA’s album “Straight Outta Compton”.

    Changed to: “Straight Outta Options”.

    … Obviously (in hindsight for some) the establishment did a better job selling DramaQueenDon.

  2. … Ultimately and ironically – following the money – the reality is that DeutscheBank/Russia AND “Liberal Hollywood” created Trump.

    And ironic* that #TrumpsBase of Bible Belt “Heartland Real Americans” fell for both!

    The money/Mammon worship, and the slick sales job.

    * Or is it? Did the Bible Belt already worship/serve Mammon?

  3. Mission Accomplished.

    For whoever wanted USA on the brink of civil war.
    Or at least with a #VanillaIsis insurgency.

    You could see Vanilla Isis coming in 2009: The Tea Party being early Deplorables/Trumpers. See my vid below – pending moderation – or search my username on YT.

    But it took ALL media anointing Trump “Tough On Trade”.
    (And mum on his 35% #TrumpTAX tariff TAX. And mum on the worst trade deficits ever: 2018 & 2019.)

    It took #DeepState Comey kneecapping Hillary, saving Trump.

    It took the Mercers admitting they wanted chaos.
    (“We shall #UnleashTheNihilists”.)

    And a general public who can’t handle self-evident truth like that #OpenBorders #MadeAmericaGreat. (#MAGA!).
    Or that #WhenAmericaWasGreat, noncitizens could vote.

  4. What this Guardian (Zionist) article doesn’t tell us in that Israel has a thousand times more influence in the USA than Russia does. Also, “Biden said he plans to use New START as a framework for future agreements. His secretary of state, Antony Blinken, supports “staying engaged” in the Open Skies treaty and criticized Trump’s decision to withdraw from the INF Treaty.” – Washington Post

  5. Already at 60’s and 70’s whole Europe economy it was vibrant and recovered from WWII and they can defend themselves, so the question…. “on why America should stop paying to defend countries that can afford to defend themselves”…. it was true then and remains true today.

  6. Just check out the names of the operatives referred to, and see that thay are not axcactluyú Tartar nor Slavic.

  7. All of this about Russia and not a word about Israel, that’s the kind of article the Guardian specializes in. When we remember that Likud is primarily a creation of so-called “Russian” mobsters who were expelled from the USSR to Israel back in the 1980s, the same folks who went on to control the Kosher Nostra in New York City, it’s clear that Trump’s connections with “Russia” go back way before 1987. Also remember, he was Roy Cohn’s protege long before he was wooed by the KGB. So much was left out of this article.
