Trump: I have been tougher on Russia that any other president

Source: The Hill



BY JOHN BOWDEN - 01/12/19 09:13 AM EST

-snip-

In a tweet posted Saturday morning, the president argued that it was right to seek positive relations with Russia, while arguing that his administration had confronted Russia on the global stage more than did the last three administrations.

"I have been FAR tougher on Russia than Obama, Bush or Clinton," Trump tweeted. "Maybe tougher than any other President."

"At the same time, & as I have often said, getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing," he went on. "I fully expect that someday we will have good relations with Russia again!"

17. Are you aware ..."The Wack A. Doodle Association of America" has

issued a statement saying, .." ....under no circumstances, none, that are imaginable, do we want to be associated with Mr. Trump. His craziness has nothing to do with our brand of being off. He is much too sick for any of us to be connected to him ".

I just made that up...Anyway, all Trump has to do is "shut up" for a week. No tweets or ridiculous statements... but that is too much to ask...Wait a minute...What job does he hold?? Who does he represent?..etc...etec...etc...

19. This sounds so much like Nixon's "I am not a crook" statement

Only in this case it's "I am not a traitor to my country."

If little Putin were not providing Trump with advice and counseling, Trump would have fallen off the edge of sanity by now.

(I understand Putin hates it when people mention his short stature...especially when he stands next to Trump and the first nude lady. When I called him short during the 2016 campaign, I would get swarmed by Russian trolls, they were relentless, not so much anymore. It's kind of how I test for them. )

5. If tRump wants to really damage Russia, all he has to do is..

bring gas prices down to $1/gallon. Russia's main source of foreign income is selling energy.
That will hurt Putin where it hurts the most , in the pocketbook.

Last year to $2 currently. Price of oil has dropped even more from $80 to $45. This is not good for Putin's bank.

16. Liar!

He's done like this with everything else, he's lying, and is the puppet of putin , just like Hillary said he was. So much so the FBI could open up a investigation specifically for looking into that. No wonder he hates all law enforcement looking into him, and he attacks and tries to say they are criminals , when all along he's been putin's boy in the White House. He changed the republican platform, hired russian agents for his campaign, and administration, and lied about it all because they were working for and with putin. Probably why the government is shut down now, because putin would like that.

22. What about JFK staring down Khrushchev during the Cuban missile crisis?

All that was at stake was the probability of nuclear war.

Trump's idea of being tough on Russia is kissing Putin's ass without wearing Chapstick.

(I know that when the Cuban missile crisis occurred Russia was actually the USSR, but it's the first example I thought of.)

25. Tougher HOW? Lifting sanctions? Firing the guy who was investigating Russian election hacking?

Trying to HINDER the investigation into the extent of Russian hacking our elections?

DOING ANYTHING about Russians hacking our elections?

Inviting sanctioned Russians into the OVAL OFFICE while barring American press?

Failing to enforce sanctions that were nearly unanimously voted for by both branches of congress?

Taking Putin's word for it that the Russians had nothing to do with Russian election interference while simultaneously denigrating our own US intelligence assurances that indeed, Russia did interfere in our elections and CONTINUE TO DO SO?

Doing and saying NOTHING about that video Putin put out showing their fancy new missile hitting Florida?

Alienating our allies? Repeating Russian talking points about Afghanistan?

Please elaborate, Mr. pResident. How exactly have you been "tougher than any US president on Russia"?

from the Trump/Putin meeting in Helsinki. The only thing that is sure there is that IQ45 cleaned off his chin before they walked out of the room!

And now there are postings that IQ45 has not discussed any of the issues that these two cons discussed in meetings.

Whoa! Color me surprised!

41. He has, but not in the way most of us think of it

It's been tough for Russia's oligarch class to deal with an orange pustule that doesn't pay its debts.

Please understand, it's not that I feel sorry for their oligarch class; if anyone's stupid enough to loan money to Donald Trump they deserve everything they get. However, I don't think we've ever had a president get whacked by a foreign power before and we really don't need there to be a first time.
