Trump campaign guts GOPís anti-Russia stance on Ukraine

Ukrainian Slavs, who gives a FF about Ukrainian Slavs? Not the Donald, co-founder of the Putin/Trump Admiration Society.

Trump campaign guts GOP’s anti-Russia stance on Ukraine

The Trump campaign worked behind the scenes last week to make sure the new Republican platform won’t call for giving weapons to Ukraine to fight Russian and rebel forces, contradicting the view of almost all Republican foreign policy leaders in Washington.

Throughout the campaign, Trump has been dismissive of calls for supporting the Ukraine government as it fights an ongoing Russian-led intervention. Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, worked as a lobbyist for the Russian-backed former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych for more than a decade.

Still, Republican delegates at last week’s national security committee platform meeting in Cleveland were surprised when the Trump campaign orchestrated a set of events to make sure that the GOP would not pledge to give Ukraine the weapons it has been asking for from the United States.

Inside the meeting, Diana Denman, a platform committee member from Texas who was a Ted Cruz supporter, proposed a platform amendment that would call for maintaining or increasing sanctions against Russia, increasing aid for Ukraine and “providing lethal defensive weapons” to the Ukrainian military.

Trump staffers wrote an amendment to Denman’s amendment that stripped out the platform’s call for “providing lethal defensive weapons” and replaced it with softer language calling for “appropriate assistance.
That amendment was voted on and passed. When the Republican Party releases its platform Monday, the official Republican party position on arms for Ukraine will be at odds with almost all the party’s national security leaders.

“This is another example of Trump being out of step with GOP leadership and the mainstream in a way that shows he would be dangerous for America and the world,” said Rachel Hoff, another platform committee member who was in the room.

Trump aspires to be like Putin. He has already said that he wants to open the media up to more lawsuits. He's a Fascist at heart.

Putin recently signed a bill limiting religious choices in the Russian Federation. Protestant, evangelical, and charismatic Christians beware, oh and yeah, Mormons and JWs too.

And as we know, if you lead the opposition to Putin and the United Russia party, it's reasonable to expect being assassinated on the streets of Moscow, in the shadow of the Kremlin.

Yes, lets get into a war with Russia, sounds good to some it seems. Hopefully this will stick in a Trump administration.
