Is Finland part of Russia?

Poor Donald, he tried to have Boltons book banned but lost the case. :lol:
He did not know the UK had nukes either.
What a dummy.

My BIL is finnish - you can imagine what he has to say about it all.

It's not just Donald. We met the Head of the fire service in the mid-west some years ago. When he was told that our hosts had their belongings shipped out from UK, he said " You would have to send them by ship as Britain is too small to have an airport. I kid you not!

And people like that are allowed to breed freely, and carry guns, and drop bombs on other countries. :?

At least he recognised the island as Britain which is closer than some who were born on it get.

Before I retired I was running a dept for a UK oil service company which was taken over by a US outfit. Their Energy Division, to which we were answerable to was based in Houston, Texas and would occasionally call us regarding our overseas contracts. I was working late-ish one night when the phone rang and the call was from the Houston boss's PA enquiring if so and so was around to speak to her boss. I told her no he wasn't and she was lucky to talk to anyone as we're six hours ahead of you and it's 7pm here. She was astounded and I had to tell her a couple of times before she's accept what I said.
I was told once that Texans are living proof that Apaches f*!#ed bison and reckon maybe that also applies to most of the other US citizens.

There's some truth in what Trump said:
History of Finland - Guide to Finnish History. Finland has been settled since after the Ice Age, and as such has had a long and intriguing history. A part of the Kingdom of Sweden from 13th century until 1809, it then became an autonomous duchy of the Russian Empire until 1917, when it declared independence.
It's joined to Sweden and Russia geographically.
