What sort of country has high officials who would kidnap and sell someone for $15 Million?

Just to get the money, with no foreign policy goal being served.

Iceland? No.  Togo? No....

It's the United States! (Allegedly)

WSJ: Mueller Probing If Flynn Part Of Lucrative Plot To Kidnap Turkish Cleric

Quote
Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating the role played by former national security adviser Michael Flynn in an alleged plot to forcibly remove a Muslim cleric living legally in the U.S. to Turkey in exchange for millions of dollars, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

The alleged plot described by the Journal involves a direct quid quo, in which Flynn and his son, Michael Flynn, Jr., would receive up to $15 million for successfully delivering Fetullah Gulen to the Turkish government.

If team jerseys aren't proof of collusion, I don't know what is.

Would it have been better for him to bow down? Like a certain other president would have done?

Don't see anybody else bowing, why should he?

Incidentally, these seem like lab coats.  Note that Putin is wearing a shirt and tie under his.  What is Trump wearing?

I don't have a clue about this garb at this meeting. It does look like standard Communist uniform among leaders. Hillary dresses like this all the time, not at meetings, but everywhere. Well, we know she is a Communist, so it makes more sense than Trump wearing Communist gear.

Hillary wears pants suits.  Much more expensive ones than Communist women do.  She's a high powered lawyer and dresses like one.

I think this was taken at a factory visit.  Sometimes the garments are intended to protect the wearer's clothing from the things in the factory and sometimes the garments are intended to protect the things in the factory from stuff on the wearer.  In electronics plants, it's more often the latter.  I've worn garments like this (even have a few in the closet, but none that nice blue).  Usually I take off my suitcoat and wear it like Putin.  Trump looks like he's a flasher.

This looks like a publicity shot of the Economic Summit in Viet-Nam.  Nobody else is wearing those blue coats, and it's not either Vietnamese folk costumes or current Communist wear.

Also, what's the emblem on the collar on Trump's coat?  A medal for crotch grabbing? Evil

Did BJ Bill Clinton wear a BJ emblem? Or was he more dishonest than Trump? At least Trump brags about his, but apparently Bill doesn't or Hillary would have him killed. LOL!

I did a little research (wish you had a proper cite for the picture, Robcat, it would have saved me a LOT of time).  Apparently it was before the formal dinner at the Asia-Pacific Summit.  Only about half the guys wore those blue coats and the PM of Vietnam was one of them.  Women were not required to wear them at all.  The Australian did not, nor did the Sultan of Brunei.  The coat resembles the "Hawaiian Shirt" or the shirt worn in many countries formerly of the Spanish Empire (like the Philippines or Mexico).  Note that the PM of Vietnam has a similar emblem on his coat.  Maybe Trump's Protocol advisor suggested he wear it as a shirt.  It probably would have looked funny with his tie sticking out from the bottom, though :-P

No, Trump's more of a curtsier:

Trump’s Tweets May Be His Undoing

His careless public comments provide evidence of private communications that would be illegal.
