The Left has been calling Trump a traitor since his summit with Putin. It’s surprising they haven’t cited the abundance of evidence for this:
1. Energy: Putin depends heavily on energy exports. Trump has encouraged fracking, pipelines, and offshore drilling. These actions are increasing oil and gas production, which hurts Russia.
2. Iran: The nation is a de facto ally of Russia. Trump has withdrawn from Obama’s Iran agreement, reinstituted sanctions, and forced European companies to follow them. This hurts Russia’s ally and is further evidence that he’s Putin’s poodle.
3. Ukraine: Trump has begun shipping weapons to them whereas Obama generously shipped blankets. This support for the country attacked by Putin decisively proves that Trump is in league with Putin.
