Trump team says sanctions against Russia are really sanctions against TrumpPosted: 2016-12-30
How closely does the Trump team identify their cause with that of Vladimir Putin? This closely.
“I will tell you that even those who are sympathetic to President Obama on most issues are saying that part of the reason he did this today was to quote ‘box in’ President-elect Trump,” incoming counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway said Thursday night on CNN. …
Rudy Giuliani, the former New York mayor and prominent Trump supporter, said Friday that Obama’s decision to impose sanctions late in his second term was “extraordinary” and added that he has “never seen a president try to create more problems for a future president.”
Those problems being putting slight speed bumps into Trump’s immediate desire to follow through on Rex Tillerson’s deal to give Putin half a trillion dollar.
The aligning interests between Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russia’s choice for U.S. president (Donald Trump), and Big Oil represents the gravest threat to humanity (and democracy) since the rise of the Axis powers in the 1930s.
