Given the current political landscape, there is not much that could convince people that Donald Trump’s words are true. Let’s face it, nothing Trump has ever uttered has a high likelihood of being true. On June 14, 2016, Trump tweeted “Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and belief.” Trump then celebrated the Supreme Court decision last week that affirmed his administration’s decision on the transgender military ban. This is just another occurrence of proof of Trump violating his previous promises.
Throughout the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump continually promoted the benefits of America getting along with Russia. Despite all of the proof that Vladimir Putin, the President of Russia, had assisted Trump to subvert American democracy, Trump continues to deny his treason while still promoting relationships with dictators.
As Palmer Report has documented, one of the main reasons that Putin wanted Trump to become president was to remove sanctions on Russian oligarchs. It turns out that the Trump administration has continued to do everything in its power to subvert American policy while advancing Russian rule.
“Trump’s administration has neglected for nearly three months to implement required sanctions targeting Russia that were intended to punish Moscow for the poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal in the United Kingdom last year,” according to Newsweek. For the leader of a nation to publicly ignore the murder of someone for the sole purpose of protecting an individual for a quarter of a year, just to appease a foreign leader, speaks volumes. Perhaps this is why Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has acted so friendly to Trump.
