Before Donald Trump became the US President, a few of his primary business interests involved real money gambling at the casinos he owned. One of the most popular gambling games in any casino is Roulette, and quite a few people also love the play roulette online. While he may have divested most of his interests in those real money casinos, Donald Trump could still be thought of as a real gambler by nature.
Why Does US President Donald Trump Like Playing Russian Roullete?
In a recent post on the LA Times website by Mary Louise Kelly, who is unique to the Washington Post, she covered the origins of Trump’s ties to Russian leader Vladimir Putin. It all started in 2013 with a gift following Trump’s visit to Russia for the Miss Universe pageant, which was an event he owned. The two did not meet during his time in the country, but Putin followed up the visit by sending the daughter of Aras Agalarov to the Miss Universe offices in New York with a gift. Agalarov has his billion-dollar real estate empire according to this report.
The gift was described as a “black lacquered box” by journalists Michael Isikoff and David Corn in their book “Russian Roulette.” Inside the box was a letter from Putin, but the content of what was written was never revealed. This mystery is the basis for more than a few questions concerning the interesting relationship between the two world leaders.
Are You Betting That Robert Mueller Will Find Evidence To Impeach Trump?
Trump went on to become president and, as a result, more questions than answers remain on this matter. There have been probes by the House and Senate Intelligence committees over a year ago. An investigation into his ties to Russia by special counsel Robert Mueller is ongoing, and any number of reporters have spent countless hours trying to uncover the details of Trump’s ties to Russia and in particular Putin.
Original Sin Pf Trump’s Presidency And Russia Scandal That Raises Questions
When it comes to the subject of Russia, Isikoff and Corn describe it as “the original sin of Trump’s presidency, a scandal that raises questions about both his legitimacy and the nation’s vulnerability to covert information warfare.” The basis of their book, “Russian Roulette” is their account of the entire matter with Russia as it became the focal point of the 2016 presidential campaign dragging on through the first full year of Trump’s presidency. There is nothing in the book that reveals a smoking gun to prove that Russia did meddle in US affairs, but it does paint a rather clear picture that what Russia did and may still be doing goes way above the description of ‘routine espionage.’

Why Does It Appear That US President Donald Trump Is Playing Russian Roulette?
The report goes on to cite numerous details concerning some of the actual events that were mentioned in this book. Isikoff is quoted as saying (about Russian Roulette), “It is challenging to write a book on a scandal that is not over yet.”. He talks about trying to pry information from reluctant sources, ongoing investigations that have yet to draw any hard conclusions and keeping information relevant even though it may already be outdated.
The report mentions that Isikoff and Corn will be discussing the book at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 22.
