Interesting insight into ‘fighting’ by draft-dodger Trump.
“more behind this than just a silly Trump tower. He must owe way more money than we can imagine”
Yes. Trump has declared bankruptcy 6 times, and was bailed out by the Russian oligarchs in at least three of them. Along with years of money laundering. Layers of corruption.
Trump can never, ever let the American people see his tax returns, and has been desperately fighting with every possible weapon to prevent it.
“a bloody idiot … believe whatever CNN …”
Nope, sorry Sheldon. It’s history now. Half a dozen examples given and can give many more: Trump campaign manager Manafort (now in prison) literally on the Russian payroll for 10 years. Or the multiple meetings between Trump family and Russian intelligence. Or Trump’s continuous excusing and apologizing for Putin on the world stage. Or Trump’s surrender of Venezuela, Nicaragua, and the whole southern Caribbean – a critical American sphere of influence – to Putin’s dominance. Trump’s actual words and Trump’s actual deeds.
“Trump was tougher on Putin than Obama”
And yet you are unable to provide a single example.
Worst of all, maybe.
On July 16 2018, Trump stood up in Helsinki side-by-side with the Russian dictator, and in response to direct questions, sided with Russia, a hostile foreign power, against the government of the United States.
No American president of ANY party has ever done this. Never before has an American president, on an international stage, sided with an enemy against America. Never.
In response to Russian violent invasion of Crimea and Ukraine, in 2012 the United States instituted the Magnitsky sanctions, authorizing Western governments to sanction human rights offenders in Russia, freeze their foreign assets, and ban them from entering the signatory countries. Not just blanket sanctions against a whole country – but targeting specific Russian oligarchs by name. This is an unprecedented level of international sanctioning. Putin hates these sanctions above all else. Trump has been doing absolutely everything he can to minimize, weaken and eliminate these sanctions. From even before he took office, and continuously since. Only bipartisan force, both among Administration officials and in Congress, has prevented Trump from surrendering this leverage over Putin. In fact, these eliminating sanctions are most likely the MAIN REASON Putin wants Trump in the White House so very badly.
Principal strategic objective of Soviet Union and Russia since 1930s: the weakening and demoralization of American law enforcement; Counter-Intelligence and the FBI. Trump has been harassing, slandering, demeaning and firing these career professionals devoted to the rule of law and defense of America, over and over and over. Drags Russian diplomats into the Oval Office and brags about purging American law enforcement. Abusing American law enforcement continuously in his cult rally. This is an enormous gift from Trump to Putin.
Principal Russian strategic objective for 70 years has been to weaken and fragment NATO. Trump has been attacking and alienating NATO and our NATO allies for almost three years. Attacking our allies verbally, digitally, publicly, financially; diplomatically. Weakening the morale of NATO more effectively than any propaganda Putin could pay for himself. A great gift to Putin.
“The truth is that Trump has been tougher on Putin than any previous president”
I seriously can’t believe foxards are still pushing this preposterous and infantile lie.
Among many many gifts from Trump:
Trump has now surrendered all of Syria to Putin. Putin now controls all oil & gas pipelines from Persian Gulf to Europe. Putin now has protected warm-water naval base in Mediterranean. U.S. commanders in Middle East not consulted – not even alerted to Trump’s surrenders. An enormous strategic gift to Putin.
“you leftists.. serve your agenda . . . false interpretations . . . canned responses . . . blah blah”
You said “Trump kicked ISIS butt”. History and current events prove you dead wrong. You counter with this Fox mush. Canned Fox indoctrination.
Yes, I hear you. Let’s pray that the revered constitutional principle of the non-politicized military survives.
It was one thing when they were Reagan Republicans.
Wow. Even spineless republitard patsy Lindsey Graham upset by this one. He says "This is a big win for Iran and Assad. A big win for ISIS.”.
And most of all for Putin, of course. But Lindsey can’t say that. Putin won’t let him. Lindsey apparently can’t survive in South Carolina after being dragged out of the closet.
