A switch in alliances

Sunday, July 22, 2018

Will Congress allow it? After punishing tariffs hurting our European allies, disparaging remarks questioning our need for NATO and now casting aside the results of numerous U.S. Intelligence investigations and opinions about Russian medaling in our elections, President Trump says he believes President Putin when he says they didnít do it. Further saying that it is important that we remain friends. Few people, other than Trump, ever considered Russia our friend. It causes me to wonder if the president is preparing to dismiss our European Allies and allying with Russia. Comments from both sides of the aisle in Congress denounce these actions, at least, as a bad decision and at worst, treasonous, deserving impeachment.

So, what will Congress do?
