    Lou, how exactly has Trump given into Putin?
    Under President Trump’s leadership the United States helped NATO realize a 24 billion dollar increase in military spending in 2017 and 44 billion in 2018. The United States has put combat troops into the three Baltic States as well as increasing military hardware capabilities in Poland and additional combat troops. The President is overseeing a increase in F 35 production an increase in front line Navy ships including Aircraft Carriers to come online. Troop levels are increasing and weaponry is being upgraded and replaced. More sanctions are imposed on Russian leadership than in the past and the substantial increase in energy production in the United States the last two years with another 1.5 million barrels of oil a day to come online takes money away from Putin and Russia day by day! In addition, the United States is working with The Ukraine with military assets and has assisted in the Ukrainian Israeli alliances. Neither an ally of Russia. President Trump is looking to defend the United States in Space against Russian aggression and is using the Treasury department to squeeze Russia monetarily. Thank you.

    2 bits - Cottonwood Heights, UT; Trump has taken Putin's side in every incident. Why would this one be any different?

    Russia loves Trump for reason.

    RE: "Putin has warned that if the U.S. deploys such weapons in Europe after abandoning the treaty, Russia will respond by targeting nations that would host them"...

    Problem is... Russia already has missiles targeting these countries.

    More anti-Trump blather, but OK, let's go there.

    Trump has been as tough on Russia as his predecessor.

    When Obama was President we had a plan for NATO to put missiles in Poland. Putin said NO. And Obama pulled them out.

    He also didn't respond when Russia invaded Ukraine (a nation that gave up their nuclear arsenal in exchange for America's promise to defend them if Russia invaded them), or when Russia invaded and annexed Crimea.

    Obama didn't prevent Russians from meddling in our elections (and he and our CIA knew Russians were trying to influence public opinion and our elections long before the 2016 election).

    Trump was not caught on inadvertently hot mike saying he could cooperate with Russia more after his re-election.

    Russia will just do whatever they want. It's not like the U.S. is going to hold them accountable for anything. Putin is essentially running things.
