Joseph Stalin Pure Evil
Who said this? “I think that if I give him everything I possibly can, and ask nothing from him in return, he won’t try to annex anything, and he will work with me for world democracy and peace.” (The answer can be found in this article; just look for it.)
Roosevelt’s initial remarks to Premier Stalin, quoted in the port, thus were apt. (see the complete report in the link) Nevertheless, while the wartime relations between the leaders of the United States and the Soviet Union were highlighted by their face-to-face meetings at Tehran and Yalta, there was a series of important events leading up to their first meeting in late 1943. It is to this important pre-Tehran background that we first turn.
In 1943, U.S. President Roosevelt met privately with Joseph Stalin, who was the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. http://www.unc.edu/depts/diplomat/AD_Issues/amdipl_6/stefan.html (See printed article below).

On July 16, 2018, U.S. President Donald Trump met privately with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The cruelty of Joseph Stalin was known to the world, including journalists.

[Roosevelt and Stalin] “I am glad to see you. I have tried for a long time to bring this about.”
— FDR to Stalin at their first private meeting in Tehran, November 28, 1943.
FDR clearly possessed remarkable self-confidence.4 He believed that if he could establish close personal relations with Stalin, he could exert a positive influence on the Soviet leader. FDR expressed this belief directly to Churchill in a message on March 18, 1942:
I know you will not mind my being brutally frank when I tell you I think I can personally handle Stalin better than your Foreign Office or my State Department. Stalin hates the guts of all your top people. He thinks he likes me better, and I hope he will continue to do so.
(Hopkins’s report on his July 30 – 31, 1941 meeting with Stalin is perhaps one of the reasons for this element in FDR’s thinking.)
Given this belief, it was predictable that FDR would seek to meet à deux with Stalin; despite his efforts to do so, Stalin declined to meet with him until the Tehran Summit late in 1943. By that time, Stalin had apparently become convinced that there was no possibility of an acceptable compromise peace with Germany, or he may have concluded that he had played out the usefulness of the German card with the Western leaders. In either case, by early September of 1943, he agreed to meet with FDR and to coordinate operations designed to bring about the total defeat of the Third Reich.
In the following PBS (Taxpayer funded) and CBS, it is mentioned that the three prior U.S. Presidents did not meet privately with Russia’s President, Vladimir Putin. But, nothing was mentioned about the private meeting that took place between U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Russia’s Joseph Stalin. Neither have I found a main stream media report about the FDR and Stalin private meeting. But! Guess what! It’s amazing! I found the information on the FDR-Stalin meeting!

Consider the words in the following video of U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, as he spoke about his ideas for working with Joseph Stalin for world democracy and peace. I have neither heard anyone on Main Stream Media report that Roosevelt and Stalin met privately, nor that Roosevelt wanted to work in such a manner as he voiced about his desire to work with Stalin for world democracy and peace.

Help Wanted! Truthful And Objective Journalism!
Where are the journalist news types of CBS Edward R. Murrow, Douglas Edwards, Walter Cronkite; NBC Chet Huntley, David Brinkley, John Chancellor; ABC Harry Reasoner, Howard K. Smith? The names abruptly come to a halt! Each of those “journalists,” objectively pursued the truth before they reported their conclusion.
