Diplomats Must Leave?

Related imageHow is it possible that Trump is all of a sudden silent? This past weekend Putin expelled 755 Americans from the United States Embassy Diplomatic Staff in Russia, the most amount of Diplomats thrown out of any country EVER in American History! Trump says nothing? Our Secretary of State does nothing? No diplomatic talks? No reason given for such a harsh action? Putin claimed that this was due to economic sanctions and seizures. He must have really wanted those free mansions on United States soil back again. How does this help anyone in both countries? Lack of a presence or communication helps no one.
Is this retaliation for Obama’s decision to expel 35 Russians who Obama said were spies back in December? Obama seized two Diplomatic properties. The President or the State Department has made no statements about Putin’s retaliation. Is the bromance over? Since when is Trump speechless? Michael McFaul the former United States Ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration said that this is the largest expulsion in the history of American Diplomacy. Is there anything Trump can do right? How can he be silent on this issue? Trump needs to push back on this issue because now he looks weak to the world. He has already alienated all of Europe at the Paris Climate Accord.  Unless this was planned in Trump’s three hour personal meeting with Putin. Dictators hate to consult anything with anyone so who needs Diplomats? It seems to be becoming a new world order for the worse.
Is Putin trying to cut some kind of deal? What is Trump’s policy towards Russia in general? It has just been revealed that our President dictated his son’s misleading statement on that meeting with the Russian lawyer. It is such a crazy spider web of deceit and lies coming from everywhere with people in high positions dropping like flies in the White House.  Don Jr. said the conversations were about adoptions. Well the adoption issue was really about sanctions. The Russians then wanted to lift sanctions. Back in 2012 America adopted a set of sanctions against human rights violators in Russia very similar to the atrocities that are happening now in Venezuela under their vigorous evil dictator arresting opposition leaders, killing protestors and starving people from food and medicines.  America wrote the Magnitsky Act formerly known as the Russia and Moldova Jackson-Vanik Repeal and Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act of 2012, intended to punish Russian officials responsible for the death of Russian Lawyer Sergei Magnitsky in a Moscow prison in 2009. Is Trump such bed fellows with Putin that he will allow such a harsh retaliation by Russia?

Those sanctions were put in place because Russia should not be allowed to kill opposition leaders. There is no fair elections in Russia. That is how Putin has been able to be in power there for the past 17 years. Then Putin retaliated by putting Americans on a sanction list and went further and he banned adoptions by American citizens. So, when you hear about adoptions it is really a discussion about sanctions. What the hell was Donald Jr. doing talking about adoptions anyway? Did we elect him too to conduct our nation’s laws with other countries? Trump is really out of control of everything.
