Al­lied with Putin


Pres­i­dent Trump has failed to con­front Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin over Rus­sian pay­ments to the Tal­iban for “boun­ties” to kill Amer­i­can sol­diers in Afghanista­n. Trump claims he wasn’t briefed even though it was in his writ­ten in­tel­li­gence brief­ing. So he ei­ther read it and is ly­ing, or he’s re­fus­ing to take ac­tion to pro­tect our troops.

Since Fe­bru­ary, Trump has: 1) de­nied Rus­sian in­ter­fer­ence in the 2016 elec­tion; 2) tried to re­duce former Pres­i­dent Obama’s sanc­tions on Russia for an­nex­ing Crimea; 3) in­vited Putin to the White House and; 4) urged that Russia be re-ad­mit­ted to the G-7.

So Trump is al­lied with Putin against Amer­i­can sol­diers.
