Despite Helsinki, Trump still doing what he said he would do


Sunday, July 29, 2018

Well, the world did not end. The optics of President Trumps meeting with Vladimir Putin was disappointing without question. Nobody can seriously defend it.

Democrats compared the meeting to 9/11, Normandy, Pearl Harbor and the Cuban Missile crisis, just to name a few. Once again, the “Hate Trump” media and democrats ignored the facts, that Barack Obama, CIA Director John Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper knew the Russians were working to interfere in the 2016 elections. They chose to do nothing because they were sure Hillary was going to win.

Remember folks, it was their job to protect the integrity of the election, not Trump’s. As Republicans, we care much more about what President Trump has done, not what he says. Obama pulled missile defense out of Poland, pulled troops out of Germany, and refused to help the Ukraine and Georgia in fighting Russia. Trump has reversed all of that. Trump has thrown out of the U.S., 60 Russian intelligence officers. Trump has also imposed tough sanctions against Russia. What did Obama do to Russia in 8 years besides his ridiculous “Red Line” in the sand and having Hillary Clinton bring a red “reset” button to her meeting with Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov.  

Remember when Obama famously stated to then Russian president Dimitri Medvedev to “tell Vlad he’d have more flexibility after the 2012 election”? Funny how not a single democrat or journalist ever had an issue with that. Despite the hysteria of the left, nothing done in Helsinki made life easier for Putin and Russia in its continued economic decay and diplomatic isolation due to the Trump sanctions. Remember folks, Russia is a one trick economic pony. Trump said he would jumpstart our economy, secure our borders and rebuild our military. He is doing just that. That’s what truly matters.
