President Trump Takes Decisive Action On Russia

The following statement was released from White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders:

“Today President Donald J. Trump ordered the expulsion of dozens of Russian intelligence officers from the United States and the closure of the Russian consulate in Seattle due to its proximity to one of our submarine bases and Boeing. The United States takes this action in conjunction with our NATO allies and partners around the world in response to Russia’s use of a military-grade chemical weapon on the soil of the United Kingdom, the latest in its ongoing pattern of destabilizing activities around the world. Today’s actions make the United States safer by reducing Russia’s ability to spy on Americans and to conduct covert operations that threaten America’s national security. With these steps, the United States and our allies and partners make clear to Russia that its actions have consequences. The United States stands ready to cooperate to build a better relationship with Russia, but this can only happen with a change in the Russian government’s behavior.”

That is my President. I voted for him and approve of all he has done for us in just a few short months. More than some presidents did in 8 full years.

I totally support our President’s tough stance on Russia’s bad behavior! I applaud him standing with our allies to remove these bad actors from our country. I agree, that if there are no consequences, Russia will just be emboldened like it was during the Obama years, to continue to cause unrest and dangerous behavior world-wide. I urge our President to not compromise on getting the Wall built and getting rid of the lottery and chain immigration policies and sanctuary cities and policies. President Trump is the only one who can get this done and I have complete confidence in him. I want to THANK our President for everything that he is doing to drain the swamp and save this wonderful country from the evils of progressivism, which is just another word for socialism, BIG government, and taking our voices and freedoms away from us. Thank you Mr. President and God Bless You and your Family!

President Trump has taken decisive action against China and now against Russia. The snowflakes and leftist demented Democrats on MSM don’t know what to do since they have been accusing him of being non-decisive about Russia for a long time. Now that he has taken decisive steps against each country, the same leftists are screaming that Trump has brought us retaliation from Putin and from China. These idiots would not be satisfied if Donald J. Trump found a new cure for cancer. They would say, “Well, it doesn’t cure all cancer, and what about cystic fibrosis?”

President Trump has the answer to most problems; his only true problem is the RINOs in the party. Folks, it is up to us citizens to rid the GOP of these flakes. These are really Dems in elephant hide, mainly in the rear end.

That is about as ridiculous a statement as one can make. Do you really and honestly believe that Trump is a puppet of the Putin regime? come on if anyone was a puppet it was our Moslem Marxist POS President Obama. The uranium sale to Russia? The weak willed limp wristed fool endangered the US more than Trump could ever do. Don’t misunderstand me I am angry that Trump caved into the communist scum that are the democrats in Congress and the Rino’s with them. But like him or not we need to support him for a few more years.

I agree with Lewis Tripp above! President Trump has accomplished much in spite of outrageous resistance.
He is doing a great job! Imagine what he could accomplish if the nay sayers would help by working with him instead of resisting progress! Thank you, President Trump!

President Trump is our president. For the good of all Americans we need to respect and support President Trump.
“Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.” Romans 13:1-2 NIV

We don’t always know the answer as to why God allows things to happen. I feel obama was put into office so when DJT, our 45th President (read Isaiah 45) all the corruption would be exposed. If obama wasn’t elected, hillary (Jezabel) wouldn’t have been exposed for all her evil antics.

Yes I agree with this! The real reason and truth of why God allowed illegal Obama “ in office for 8 yrs. was to get the American people to cry out for justice bc of Obama’s criminal and blatant destruction of America!! He calls on His people to repent and to seek Him as never before and He heard our cry’s for help and He stopped the enemy’s timeline for a season!! Know the signs of the times, His return is hastening NEAR . Be ready?!!!

We are very big Trump supporters and approve of the great job of leading our nation he is doing. The only thing that bothers us is his tweeting, he tweets too much and anyone knows that talking through computers you cannot hear the tone of what is being said and it can be very misconstrued. The press runs with it, and although we do know we have news that does not broadcast the truth, tweeting makes President Trump look like he has nothing better to do than argue with idiots. That being said, we pray daily for him and truly expect him to serve our country a full 8 years. He does love his country and no one can misconstrue that. Belinda Hill

Keep going MR. Trump I feel we will be safer once you get rid of the deep south group.I can’t force myself to even listen to McCain or Graham then there is Flake he is really a piece of you know what. They all need to retire there not important to most of us. I don’t think the other side can do much more they look fools already.

I heartily approve of my President’s censoring Russia in this way. Donald Trump has my vote again and I agree to do what is necessary to rid our Congress of the Rinos there who are more concerned with their own personal agenda than they are with the good of the people of our country. We can all go to the polls and vote Republican in the upcoming election and be assured that we have done what we could to help our POTUS. GO TRUMP!!!

Trump has achieved something along the SW among unskilled workers.
Since there are less and less illegals who will work for less than our minimum wage, the wages for unskilled workers has gone up 30%.
And these are Americans that are benefiting by this tougher border policy.
This was the issue that made Trump.
He saw that Obama was preventing the border control from doing their job in a brazen attempt to court the Hispanic vote that should have been considered TREASON.
Trump grabbed this issue like a football and ran with it into the oval office.

We don’t NEED another “cold war”. We don’t need another “boogie man”. Sanctions are a racket. War is a racket! EVERYTHING is “the russians did it”. How ridiculous! Everyone needs to GROW UP and stop just “growing old”. All we do is pour more money into the military for these cooked up “enemies”. We have ravaged the world! We have killed more people than any country on the planet. We need to stop. Just if we are attacked, defend our country like the Constitution says. There has not been a “declared” WAR by Congress since World Two! But there have been TOO MANY WARS! They do nothing but kill people and bring down the middle class. Does THIS make you happy?

I think we have the best president in the whole world, and it brings back memories of serving under John F. Kennedy as I was ready to conquer the world for that man, He was a true leader, as Donald Trump is now. This President is to fight for at any costs for he has righteously paid his way
