Should the U.S. lift sanctions on Russia?
Russian officials are framing Trump's move to lift sanctions on the FSB as a step toward building an alliance to fight global terrorism. Trump and his supporters think Russia could be a key ally in the fight against Islamic extremism. Lifting sanctions would allow the U.S. and Russia work with one another more effectively and ease building tensions.
"This shows that actual joint work on establishing an anti-terrorism coalition is about to begin," Kovalyov said. "This is the first step on the way leading to cooperation in the war on terror.""Without easing these sanctions it would have been impossible to take the next step," the lawmaker said. "These practical actions indicate that US President Donald Trump has been consistent," he stressed.
Russia is looking out for itself and people must remember that. Any benefits to Trump or the Republicans were incidental. Trump's supporters should take a hard look at history and realize Russia is not an American ally and probably will never be. Here, Red State's JD Rucker explains why Russia would want to meddle in the elections.
Russia and WikiLeaks were not doing anything to benefit America. They were protecting their own interests. Russia’s desire to keep Clinton out of the White House stems from their understanding of what she would represent internationally. Her foreign policy is more aligned with Neocons than Barack Obama’s passivity. Like her husband, she would have had America more involved with international affairs and the United Nations than we have been since before Obama. Russia wants the United States out of the Middle East and east Asia. They want our influence over Europe to be reduced as well. Clinton would have pushed us further down the globalist road that Russia wants to dominate.
The takeaway from the Russian interference in the our election is that Russia will do whatever it can to move its agenda forward and weaken the U.S. Lindsey Graham says Russia must be punished for its actions.
“Here’s what I hope to do: unite as many members of the Senate as possible around the idea that you can’t forget Russia for trying to undermine our democracy. They did try to do it. Trump won, but Russia interfered,” Graham said.
