During this week's US-Russia Helsinki summit a Russian journalist asked a pointed question to President Trump about his proposal to replace Russian natural gas in Germany with American natural gas--noting that "the U.S. even had to buy Russian natural gas for Boston."

In his answer Trump unfortunately didn't explain the domestic politics behind the Boston natural gas problem.

Namely, that Boston's deep blue state government and Attorney General have publicly voiced their preference for imported Russian natural gas over domestic energy delivered via pipeline, and have incorporated that preference into Massachusetts state policy that makes them dependent on energy imports from Russia.

One could only hope he would have made Massachusetts a star on the world stage.
