Senate Dem: Trump Standing Up to Putin is Gift to Putin

I wondered how the Dems were going to spin President Trump holding Putin accountable over INF cheating when Obama didn’t.

I should have guessed that they would just go with Ben Rhodes’ old Orwellian car salesman routine. “Weakness is strength. Strength is weakness.”

It pervaded the Obama administration. Why should it go away now?

Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) said Tuesday that she believes President Trump is acting in Russian President Vladimir Putin’s interest by withdrawing from the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF).

“[Trump] is very much on the [same] page with Putin and his announcement that we’re going to withdraw from the INF is yet another, in my view, gift to Putin,” Hirono told CNN’s “Situation Room” Tuesday night.

“Because I think Putin would like that to happen so that he can be unfettered in his aggression.”

Russia has decried Trump’s move a form of “blackmail” on the part of the U.S.

The Kremlin has also called it a “dangerous stance” on the part of the White House and said the country will act to “restore balance” if the U.S. truly withdraws.

Russia wants us to stay in the treaty, because it ties us down while it gets to do whatever it wants.
