Will Russia be helping Trump the capitalist or Bernie the communist in 2020?

Feel the Bern in 2020

The news media keeps telling me that Russia and Trump get along so well, but I don’t see it in the policies.

The Daily Wire has more about Trump’s record on Russia relations:

Here are some of the following actions that Trump has taken against Russia:

  • Trump has repeatedly enacted tough sanctions against Russia and Russian oligarchs for a wide range of offense ranging from election interference to supporting destabilizing actions in Ukraine.

  • Trump expelled over 60 Russian diplomats from the U.S. after Russia engaged in an assassination attempt in the U.K.

  • Trump played a significant role in securing an extra $100 billion in funding for NATO, which serves to counter Russian aggression.

  • The Trump administration killed hundreds of Russian mercenaries in Syria.

  • Trump has aggressively tried to prevent Russia from expanding its influence in the energy sector in Europe.

  • Trump proposed buying Greenland last year in an apparent attempt to counter increasing Russian aggression and influence in the arctic.

  • Trump has repeatedly gone after Russia’s top allies, including China, Iran, and North Korea.

With all that said, who do you think that the Russians will be supporting in 2020? Trump? Or will the support their good friend Comrade Bernie?

Federal officials have notified socialist Bernie Sanders that Russia is trying to boost his presidential campaign in an effort to impact who becomes the Democrats’ presidential nominee.

The Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump and other top lawmakers on Capitol Hill have been informed about Russia’s efforts to boost Sanders.

Top officials “have repeatedly warned that Russia has ongoing plans to interfere in U.S. elections and foster divisions among Americans, part of a strategic goal to undermine U.S. standing in the world,” The Post reported. “Some analysts believe that the Kremlin’s goal is to cause the maximum disruption within the United States, and it throws the support of its hackers and trolls behind candidates based on that goal, not any particular affinity for the persons running.”

Sanders has a long history of being cozying up to Russia, including when he was the mayor of Burlington.

Looks like the secular left has gone back to being in bed with the Russians again. Just like during the Cold War.

  1. Russia, Putin, China, whomever, whatever has, had, zero effect on whom I decide to vote for, not now, not tomorrow, not ever.
    Russia could make it rain gold, and it wouldn’t change who I want to vote for, and I don’t think I’m alone in that assertion, in that after all this time, haven’t heard a single person interviewed on TV, radio, anywhere, that has attributed Russia for making them vote either for Hillary or Trump, not a single sole has said ‘Oh gee wiz, If not for Russia, I would of voted for Hillary/Trump.
    People vote mainly based on ideology that they’ve held and had long before any candidate decides to run for office.
    These supposed people, who are so undecided, that a post on FB turns their vote either way, please, I’d like to meet one of these fictional characters.
