During the presidential campaign, Donald Trump had high praise for Vladimir Putin as a world leader. Then his campaign officials had meetings with Russian officials, and we seriously think Russia meddled in our election. Russian nationals have invested millions in Trump’s companies. We don’t know how many millions because he won’t release his tax forms.
Now he has tried to tell the FBI director to stop investigating his national security adviser who has a financial relationship with Russia. And when that didn’t work, he suddenly just fires the FBI director. And when Russian officials visit the White House, he tells them some of our classified information.
He campaigned on how Clinton used an unsecured email server and how he was going to make America more efficient. I see now that this means cutting out the middleman and just letting Russia know our classified information without them trying hard to get it on their own.
2020 can’t come soon enough.
Never miss a local story.
