One of the first things that Trump did, when he became President, was arrange to send liquified natural gas (LNG) to Poland, which was the earliest strong evidence that he wasn’t Russia’s man. And, he’s telling the truth, when he says, that he was the hardest on Putin. The other Presidents coddled Putin like he was a pet puppy, whereas he was a baby bear, who grew up. “Bears are carnivoran mammals of the family Ursidae. They are classified as caniforms, or doglike carnivorans.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bear
Both Dems, and apparent Kremlin operatives pretending to be Alt-right conservatives, have been distorting what Trump has said about Putin. The motives for the first are clear. The motive of the second is apparently to get conservative America on Putin’s side. Never forget that Biden’s Secretary of State, Tony Blinken, waived the Nord Stream sanctions, which allowed it to be completed. The head of Nord Stream is Putin’s old Stasi friend, Matthias Warnig. Saying he was a Stasi isn’t name-calling. It’s a well-known fact.
“Statement by Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America
If properly handled, there was absolutely no reason that the situation currently happening in Ukraine should have happened at all. I know Vladimir Putin very well, and he would have never done during the Trump Administration what he is doing now, no way!
Russia has become very very rich during the Biden Administration, with oil prices doubling and soon to be tripling and quadrupling.
The weak sanctions are insignificant relative to taking over a country and a massive piece of strategically located land.
Now it has begun, oil prices are going higher and higher, and Putin is not only getting what he always wanted, but getting, because of the oil and gas surge, richer and richer.
The U.S. was energy independent under the Trump Administration, an independence that we had never obtained before, and oil prices would have remained low.
Now, what a mess our Country is in!” https://www.donaldjtrump.com/news/news-zqgasfgfbd1614
