Now this. Read it to a #maga or #kag loved one:
-Putin is financing the murder of our troops & Trump can’t stop siding with him.
-Trump has known for months and has chosen to say and do NOTHING about it.
The Pentagon & cabinet presented him with many options:
-a diplomatic complaint to Moscow
-a demand that they stop offering bounties for the murder of US and allied NATO troops
-an escalating series of sanctions
Trump has refused to say or do anything.
Trump stood in front of West Point graduates after forcing the cadets and their families to risk their health.
He knew that Putin was paying Islamic militants to target and murder US and NATO allied troops.
He gave his speech and did nothing.
Well, that’s not actually fair.
Trump did a few things after learning Putin was paying Al-Qaeda and other militants to target US and allied troops in Afghanistan:
-He lobbied other countries for Russia to be let back into the G7.
-He also talked to Putin June 1.
Days later he signed off on a plan to permanently withdraw up to 1/3 of the approx 34k U.S. troops currently based in Germany. Which is part of Putin’s dream of dismantling NATO. Donald Trump never told Germany he was going to do this.
Oh, and in May he withdrew from the Open Skies treaty, like Putin wanted.
Trump did Putin’s bidding in Syria this year.
He abandoned our Kurdish allies to slaughter.
They fought by our side and died because they trusted our leadership and our support to establish their own homeland. The closest and most reliable allies we had in the region, including Israel. He then handed over a US military base in Syria to Russian soldiers, to the delight of Russian news media.
He groveled before Putin and asserted that Russia didn’t interfere in the US election, trusting Putin over all US military and civilian intelligence agencies.
“He just said it’s not Russia. I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be”
Then, days later, said he wasn’t being servile to Putin and we all just didn’t understand what he said; “I realized that there is a need for some clarification…The sentence should have been…’I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia.'”
Well in May 2020, on a phone call with Putin, Trump told him the investigation into Russian interference in the election was a “hoax.” Again, he chose Putin over US intelligence.
He has known about Putin’s boutny on the heads of US and NATO allied troops for almost 2 months.
And has done nothing.
November cannot come fast enough.
