President Trump: Wouldn’t Have Allowed Russian Invasion

President Trump had direct words for Obama’s handling of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

According to the Washington Examiner:

“Long before I got here, President Obama allowed that to happen,” Trump told reporters in Belgium just days before he’s set to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin. “That was on his watch, not on my watch. That was on Barack Obama’s watch, that was not on Trump’s watch,” he added.

“Would I have allowed it to happen?” Trump said. “No, I would not have allowed it to happen. But he did allow it to happen, so that was his determination.”

Trump had been asked whether he would recognize Crimea as part of Russia, and indicated he would not go that far.”What will happen with Crimea from this point on? That I can’t tell you,” he said. “But I’m not happy about Crimea. But again, that was Barack Obama’s watch, not Trump’s watch.”

Barack Obama did little to stop the Russian invasion of Crimea, like George Bush, who did little in response to the Russian invasion of Georgia. Russian aggression has been an issue since Putin came to power in 1999, and President Trump is standing up to it. He called out the German chancellor Angela Merkel for her secretive dealings with Russia, and is sending the clear message that America will not stand by again if Russians invade their neighbors.

Go slow, Mr. President, first we will have our civil war,
thanks to Obama, and when that is finished we can direct
out attention towards Russia.

David in MA: If someone can get misguided people (Democrats) to listen to common sense once again (they were not always like they are today), things will get better. We must pray for God’s guidance. —

The Bible says God will only take so much from his children. Then he gets revenge and uses force to get what he wants

So please mr Catholic priest, tell me, HOW does aman or woman get “BORN Again? How does ONE “KNOW” that they are going to heaven when they die? Please tell all of us what IT takes to be “JUSTIFIED” as If we never sinned? What can wash away all sin? I KNOW, BUT I never knew a Catholic priest who could tell me these answers, andthat because they mostly do NOT know themselves! PRAY TELL ME!!

You’re quite right of course. But the civil war you refer to will last but mere moments. Ever see a Lib with a gun. We’re talking short war. Short war.

That’s rite David in MA, “Go slow, Mr. President”
Go Slow – Crimea, at this point, is None of our business,
even tho ‘some’ would like to make Crimea our biz.
I don’t think so. We have More than enough probs in USA
to attend/correct. Crimea prefers to be under Russian
‘umbrella’. Leave them alone to find their Peace. Thank you.

The President gave notices to “whom it may concern” !! and they know “who they are “. It requires courage and love for your own country. Period.

How we pray that God will continue to give Pres. Trump His wisdom in all that he has to challenge that Obama did to destroy our country. Putin knows that Pres. Trump says what he means and means what he said…that is respecting strength! God is in charge and will bring to pass His will. How we as Americans need to unite and be proud of being Americans and as our motto says “IN GOD WE TRUST”

President Trump isn’t obstructing justice!
Robert Mueller is obstructing justice!
Mueller indicted 13 Russians, supposedly, a person that can’t be legally subpoenaed can’t be indicted! Subpoenaing 13 Russians is as stupid as indicting 13 hyenas in Africa!

Simply put Robert Mueller is a brain dead moron!

A real President at last. The first since Truman. An American Predident that put those who cast votes for him first. European allies have taken advantage of us since Eirld War I. We can no longer afford to do so or we will become like them. Not one or all of them could defend themselves. That is their fault not our fault.

Keep on giving them hell Mr. President

Matt 23:9 KJV “And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.” How does fare in what GOD “SAID” compared w/what the C/C teaches? NEVER ever trust a Catholic priest to give youthe whole church, they just don’t “KNOW the whole truth! John 17:17 KJV

President Trump!
Please understand that President Obama was Vladimir’s pooch!
When Putin took Crimea, President Obama was hurt and stated that he was Disappointed!!!!

Vladimir chimed back with get over it because I am not giving it back!!!!
President Obama then got back in Putin’s good graces by shutting his Pie-Hole!!!!
It was love that made Barack give in to his Idol!!!!

i believe we are gearing up for war with China ! President Trump is going around and talking with other leaders asking for everyone to pay more on military and Trump is not going to back down on these tariffs . China is doing sneaky stuff and i bet the stock market will continue to look like a roller coaster ! Get ready for the ride because i think it’s going to be a wild ride !

Obama’s “strong suit” was appeasement. Otherwise, he had to be located from a hiding place so a Special Ops mission could proceed. He was all talk, all posing, and otherwise unavailable.
Trump is a major difference from that of Obama. He’s “hands on,” constantly on the job, he IS the President, an untiring President. I hope he doesn’t abuse his health in the process. It is no wonder how much he’s got done in a relatively short time, compared to Obama who was a fake if there ever was one. Trump is not smooth, he is a serious “doer.” His loyalty to America is pure, which to many people inured with the conduct of prior Presidents, makes it difficult for such people to believe. Still, and with all the distractions constantly thrown at him, he achieves. His priority is to make good on his promises, even though many of us cannot see how he will deliver, obviously because we haven’t seen presidential achievement to the degree of Trump in the past. We won’t hear Trump saying, “After I’m reelected, I’ll have more latitude to do more.”
Perhaps you don’t remember this…it was Obama, on a “hot phone” in Moscow, telling Medvedev to deliver that message to Putin. No one accused Obama of “colluding with Russia” then, but that charge was made against Trump with no actual conversation overheard, no sooner than he was elected. An introduction to the new American sickness…”Fake News!”
